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!

I reluctantly agreed and was told […]

Shapoloh

Rescued by me, handed over to a local animal welfare organisation for rehoming … and rehomed with me three weeks later, Shapoloh was an unintended addition to my family. And one of my first lessons in the abuse and neglect animals in Ireland are subject to. No digital camera in those days, so no cyewt […]
