'Action needs to be taken to address animal abuse'

By Brittany King

Students from Deansrath Community College raised over €400 as part of an ongoing campaign to increase knowledge in animal care and speak out against animal abuse at their Halloween Costume event, organised by the Transition Year students.

ISPCA is supporting the students who are completing a module entitled, “Animal Welfare,” which will help create awareness of the role of education in preventing the abuse of animals.

“The students are very enthusiastic about the module and are determined to start a national discussion that serious action needs to be taken to address the abuse of animals,” Matt Corbett, teacher and designer of the programme, said.

Clondalkin Animal Aid and My Lovely Horse Rescue are among the organisations who will benefit from the most recent fundraiser.

The students are determined to continue to take action throughout the year and carry the skills developed into their future lives.
