€80,000 of funding has been confirmed to the Cork Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (CSPCA), based in Mahon. The particular funding comes from the Department of Agriculture. It’s part of the allocation of €2.54 million to 140 organisations involved in safeguarding animal welfare around the country.

Due to new animal welfare legislation, including the new dog microchipping legislation coming into effect in March, the CSPCA will have an increased workload this year.

Speaking to TheCork.ie local Labour TD Ciaran Lynch welcomed the funding

“Animal welfare organisations make an enormous contribution to the welfare of animals, by educating the public, intervening where appropriate and by providing facilities for at-risk animals.”
