Fine Gael TD for Galway West & Mayo South

€87,000 allocated to Galway’s Animal Welfare organisations

€87,000 in funding has been awarded to 8 animal welfare organisations in Galway and is part of national funding of €2,906,000 allocated by Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed to 106 animal welfare organisations across the country.

The organisations benefiting include Galway SPCA which has received €40,000, MADRA and Pro Animale Ireland CLG both received €12,000 each, along with funding allocations for Fellenberg Foundation Ireland Ltd, Forgotten Horses Ireland, Galway & Claddagh Swan Rescue, Galway Cat Rescue and Renvyle Cat and Dog Rescue.

This funding will be a great boost for these community-focused animal welfare organisations and will help them with their work safe-guarding and promoting the welfare of animals.

I have had fantastic personal experience with animal welfare organisations here in Galway, particularly with Madra. This funding is well deserved and I would like to take the chance to recognise their contribution of the excellent volunteers that do so much for our community and the protection of surrendered, abandoned and at-risk animals.
