Welcome to the ISPCA.  We are always looking for dedicated volunteers to help out at the National Animal Centre in Longford where we care for, treat and rehabilitate hundreds of animals brought into our care by our Animal Welfare Inspectors.

We are surrounded by 88 acres of beautiful surrounds including a secluded memory garden nestled in the woodlands.  The National Animal Centre is Ireland's first purpose built rehabilitation centre which was opened in 2002. We care for all animals and have many horses, ponies, donkeys, foals, dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, small mammals & wildlife in our care at the National Animal Centre.

Volunteers must be over the age of 16 for insurance purposes.
