The DSPCA was established over 180 years ago in 1840. Over the years we have grown to be the leading and largest animal welfare charity in Ireland. We exist uniquely to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome the sick, injured and cruelly treated animals. We work 365 days a year with a team of dedicated full time staff and volunteers so that we help save lives everyday. This video will give you an insight into the DSPCA and the important work we do in the community.

About Rescue Animals Ireland

My name is Maureen Ryan and I want to share everything I know about rescue animals to help you take better care of yours! I grew up raising rabbits, cats and dogs and have learned a lot over the years. I have also spend many years volunteering for my local rescues. Hopefully, my articles are helpful and as you read them you'll learn a little more about rescue pets.
