BELFAST PROTEST AGAINST PUPPY FARM

This isn't easy to watch but it is the reality for many dogs who end up in puppy farms. Unless they are rescued, their only way out is death, which is preferable to their life in these prisons.

Please, please make the effort to come to Belfast City Hall for just 1 hour this coming Saturday. The public rally is from 11.30am - 12.30pm. We need our elected representatives to do more to protect these animals.

This is where puppies in pet stores come from. Step inside the puppy mill industry for just one minute. Find out the truth:http://www.peta.org/issues/compan...

EARLY WARNING SYSTEM

EARLY WARNING SYSTEM FOR ANIMAL WELFARE

The above scheme is in operation in Co. Monaghan since 2005 and was implemented to alert actual or potential animal welfare problems on farms, particularly from early Winter through to late Spring. Three main groups involved in the early intervention are, Monaghan SPCA, Department of Agriculture and the Irish Farmers Association and, if required, the Garda Siochana under the protection of Animals Act. We would ask the public to be vigilant and if they feel there is cause for concern to please contact the MSPCA, confidentiality is assured at all times. 
The main causes of concern at this time of the year are lack of feed and shelter or maybe an animal which has sustained an injury which is not being attended to.

THESE NEGLECTED ANIMALS NEED YOUR VOICE. SO PLEASE, IF WORRIED LIFT THE PHONE - CONTACT LORI O'NEILL ON 086-8262-956 OR SINEAD MCKENNA ON 086-8262-885. THANKS FOR CARING!

ST. LOUIS PRESENTATION

The MSPCA would like to extend our sincere Thanks to Rang Ailbhe, St. Louis Convent who sold our ‘ALL FOR ANIMALS’ calendars and raised a fantastic €265.

Thank you to Adrian Fitzgerald, their form teacher, who allowed the girls to sell the calendars, it is very much appreciated.
