Government Announces Animal Welfare Organisations to Receive Highest Funding Ever

North Cork Fine Gael Councillor John Paul O’Shea has welcomed the allocation of Government funding of over €6m to 101 animal welfare organisations throughout the country involved in protecting animal welfare.

Many welfare organisations based in Cork are to benefit from this funding. The payments will be made with immediate effect. Some organisations in Cork to benefit are as follows:

  • Community Cats Network – €24,200
  • Cork Animal Care Society – €13,500
  • Cork Cat Action Trust – €26,625
  • Cork Dog Action Welfare Group – €69,975
  • Cork SPCA – €156,950
  • Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) – €14,175
  • ISPCA Equine Rescue Centre – €65,175
  • Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline CLG – €27,200

  • The Donkey Sanctuary Ireland Ltd – €300,000
  • West Cork Animal Welfare Group Ltd – €40,725
  • Wildlife Rescue Cork – €8,000

Welcoming the funding, Cllr. O’ Shea said “It is very heartening to see these allocations being made to these deserving organisations. Many of these organisations are very busy this time of the year and the Government must support them in every way they can. We are very fortunate in Ireland in having a voluntary sector dedicated to animal welfare and the organisations in receipt of this funding, together with their staff and volunteers, provide great support and commitment to protecting surrendered, abandoned and at-risk animals”.
