Animal Advocacy is one not-for-profit person, nested in an inspiring network of charitable, government, public & networking organisations, volunteers and individuals.

We’re all part of that network!

I’m primarily involved in Trap Neuter Return (TNR) - maintaining and promoting Ireland's TNR Manual - How to Help Community Cats - and providing workshops and information evenings on all aspects of Best Practice TNR and Working Together. It's all about getting the information and skills out there - and, ultimately, solving Ireland feline overpopulation problem! At the same time, I do seem to end up doing a bit of animal transportation, fostering and rehoming in the process. And networking, fundraising and information provision. There’s always something!

MnMs & Friends

I originally posted the MnMs’ story on Facebook, as I was in the process of updating the site and couldn’t post here. Three kittens had been dumped at Melanie’s remote house, very underweight – but super friendly. I’d gone up to get them, and Jennifer had taken them in. Within days, three more kittens turned […]
