The ISPCA is the national animal welfare charity in Ireland that prevents cruelty to animals.
With 88% of our total income coming from public donations and legacies, we depend on your generosity to rescue, rehabilitate and responsibly rehome animals that have been subjected to cruelty and neglect. Last year over 16,000 cases of animal cruelty were reported to our Helpline. 3,950 cases were investigated by our fully trained Animal Welfare Inspectors. Our two Centres admitte 1,263 animals including 679 dogs, 335 cats, 140 equines, and 67 other animals.
Gifts in wills are critical to help us rescue animals suffering from neglect and abuse. Your support means that the animals we rescue each day can be cared for. The food...the kennel... the veterinary treatment... Your gift could help us initiate more investigations and rescue and rehome more animals. We currently have 8 Inspectors across 17 counties and we would like to be in every county in Ireland. Help us rescue more animals so they can find their loving home.
When we pass away we want to take care of the people and causes we care love. All charities worry about how they will fund their services in the future. Legacies help us do this.
When you leave a gift to a charity in your will you’re ensuring your legacy lives on. We know from experience that legacies help charities do what they do best, caring for other that would otherwise be left behind. Find a cause that matters to you, make a difference.
We urge you this week to make your will and leave a gift to a charity and keep your legacy alive.
