Passionate About Animals Since 1840



We are grateful that you are considering raising funds for the DSPCA. Your fundraising efforts will help support the work we do for animals in the community and will benefit the thousands of injured, neglected and abandoned animals we rescue and care for at the DSPCA each year.

The DSPCA relies on generous donations from the public and companies who support and value the work we do in the community for animals. We are not a government funded charity and receive only 10% of our annual budget of nearly €3 million in ex-gratia payments from the government. 90% of our funding comes from our monthly supporters, donations, fundraising, and income from our commercial business’s. Your contribution will benefit the thousands of injured, neglected or abandoned animals we care for at the DSPCA each year.
