13 February 2018
CP’s Belfast Branch helped the ISPCA find homes for 257 cats that were released from the Charles River Laboratories in Glenamoy, County Mayo.
The cats, along with 346 dogs, were bred in captivity for research into veterinary products and had never been outside the laboratory. With the help of CP and Dogs Trust Ireland, the ISPCA were able to help them re-adjust to the outside world and were neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and health checked by vets.
