Knowledge is power. Empower yourself.
Animal Law Ireland empowers you to understand the legislation governing animal-related crime in Ireland. Enforcement deters those who abuse or neglect animals and over time will bring about changes in attitudes, behaviour and the way animals are treated. This platform increases your knowledge, whether you are a member of An Garda Síochána, an elected representative, a policy maker or a member of the public, empowering you to effect change.
