Knowledge is power. Empower yourself.
AnimalLaw.ie sets out to raise the standard of enforcement of animal welfare law in Ireland by providing a free, non-profit public service to improve awareness of the legislation that currently protects animals. Better enforcement of existing animal law will deter those who abuse or neglect animals and over time will bring about changes in attitudes, behaviours and improve the way animals are treated in Ireland. AnimalLaw.ie seeks to remove perceived complexity, increase knowledge of our Gardaí, our elected representatives and the general public and empower each of us to effect change.
