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!

Zingaro

Dumping Kills Dumping kills. And it’s illegal. Whoever just dumped this wee kitten in my back garden – congratulations! Chances are it’ll catch FIE (Feline Infectious Enteritis) and die. I’ve the virus in the house and wee things like this are particularly susceptible. Half the time when you dump a kitten it’ll die anyway – […]

Gerry

Gerry came to me back in February this year from KLAWS Kerry, looking for his forever home. A month later my Joe died and I decided to have Gerry stay with me, rather than rehome him. A ‘guilty pleasure’ puss, as we say (usually I only keep unhomable felines, but I couldn’t resist Gerry). He’d […]
