Animal welfare awareness day #AWAD22
Commenting on Animal Welfare Awareness Day, Minister McConalogue said: “Animal welfare is important to all of us, working together to do the best we can for animals under our care, including animals on the farm or pets at home. Animal welfare is a key aspect of my Department, along with the many other organisations and individuals currently working to protect animal welfare across Ireland. This is why my Department provides funding to so many animal welfare charities doing great work in Ireland to both protect animals and educate people in the care of animals.
“On 8 December, I will be announcing new funding for animal welfare charities under the Department’s animal welfare grants programme, building on the record €3.7m we provided to charities last December
