Look out not just for your own pets but also for others.
That’s the message this World Animal Day which this year falls amid the first Irish Animal Week.
The ISPCA led initiative also sees the launch of their ‘Cruelty No More’ campaign.
Richard Ryan from Archersfield Veterinary Clinic says that there are a number of ways animals may need help; ”Animals who do not have owners and may need to be rescued from bad situations – It’s not something we like to think about but it’s reality. The ISPCA work with animals that are abused or left behind. They may take puppies from puppy farms or bad situations. People can support the work ISPCA do for animals by donating to their fundraisers or directly to them.”
