€148,000 has been allocated to 14 animal welfare organisations in Galway and Mayo. The funding is part of a €2.56 million allocation by Minister of Agriculture, Michael Creed TD, to 111 animal welfare organisations across the country.
This funding will help the community-focused, animal welfare organisations continue their work in promoting and safe-guarding the welfare of animals.
In Government, we have striven to prioritise animal welfare from the wide-ranging reform of animal welfare legislation to the banning of the use of wild animals in circuses.
From my own experience, with Madra in particular, I know first-hand the excellent work these organisations undertake and I’m certain that this funding will be put to great use in 2018.
