The aims of the GSPCA include:
(a) The prevention of cruelty to domestic and wild animals, including birds, and the fostering of knowledge of the behaviour and proper care of animals amongst the public and particularly amongst the youth of Galway City and County.
(b) Provision for the treatment of injured and sick animals (including wild animals and birds) where these are the property of persons who cannot afford professional fees or where their owner is unknown.
(c) Provision of food and shelter for unwanted or stray animals, to find homes for them.
We operate a no-kill policy (unless it is a fatal injury or illness).
(d) The undertaking of an active campaign to publicize the aims of the Branch and the utilisation of the media to disseminate information, increase public awareness of the need for proper consideration of animal welfare and to highlight present practices which condone animal abuse.
(e) The lobby of both local and national government on animal welfare issues.
