The Animal Care Society (Cork), a registered charity, was formed in October 2000. The aim of the Animal Care Society is stated in its name, to try and provide care to all animals in Cork City and County that require it. We are almost entirely made up of volunteers who give their time and effort to help animals. We are in NO way associated with the CSPCA, also known as the “animals home”.

Through our network of dedicated dog, cat and wildlife fosterers we have rehomed about six thousand animals since our foundation. We also operate a help line service. ACS Help-line Volunteers are the interface between the public and the Society. Their Job is to deal with a broad range of animal related queries in a professional manner. We also run a charity shop located in Togher, Cork from which all the proceeds are directly going towards helping the animals in our care.

While dealing primarily with companion animals the Society has also dealt with numerous cases involving other domesticated animals and wild life. Through a program of neutering and spaying it tries to address the terrible problem of feral cats and the immense suffering they endure. It reports cases of cruelty to farm animals to the inspectors of the department of agriculture who deal with those matters. It works with the ISPCA (Irish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to animals) where appropriate.

By means of its Clyde Fund, founded by ACS member Mrs. Kathleen Quinlan and named after Clyde, the dog left dying in the roadside, the Society provides veterinary care for stray animals injured in road traffic accidents. On a general level we endeavour to promote a responsible approach to pet ownership and a positive attitude to animal welfare through education talks.

And the winner is…

We are facing a little problem as our jury came back to us with two ex-aequo photos by Debbie Hogan and Helen Ivory Ward for our March photo competition.  We thus went back to the original Facebook votes and attributed the prize to the photo who had the most votes them.
Debbie Hogan with her photo “Clyde” is therefore the winner of the March competition and will be able to have her favourite picture of her pet painted by Katrina Tracuma!  Congratulations!

However, we couldn’t leave Helen with nothing, so she will receive a copy of Illusion by Brenda Tilsey Gibson for her photo “Stan, Mouse and Red”.

"Stan, Mouse and Red" by Helen Ivory Ward

Thank you to all the participants who shared their wonderful photos with us, but most importantly helped the animals in our care by doing so.  We’d also like to thank the public on Facebook, as well as our jury, who had the difficult task to choose only one out of the five beautiful pictures shortlisted.  Finally, thank you to Jill Roberts for her support in offering this prize.

Well done to all!
