ABOUT US

buttonRoscommon SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) CHY 18790 is a non-profit organization run by people who volunteer their time. And is affiliated to the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA). We look out for the care and protection of animals in County Roscommon, Ireland. We believe that animals should have:

  1. Freedom from hunger or thirst by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigor.
  2. Freedom from discomfort by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
  3. Freedom from pain, injury or disease by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
  4. Freedom to express normal behavior by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.
  5. Freedom from fear and distress by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.

DOG LICENSING IN IRELAND
Under the Control of Dogs Act 1986, which was amended in 1992, all dog owners are required to have a dog licence.

What type of licence do you need?
• Individual dog licence – covers one dog for a period of 12 months
• General dog licence – for owners of kennels for a period of 12 months
• Lifetime of the dog licence – for the lifetime of the dog for which the licence is issued
Most people will need the individual licence. You have to be over 16 years of age to hold a dog licence.

Dogs which do not require a licence
• Guide dogs for the blind do not require licensing
• Dogs which are in the country for less than 30 days do not require licensing.
Some breeds have specific regulations
The breed of dog is not considered important, but some breeds have specific regulations about leashing, muzzling, etc., in public places.
