As part of the 5th year L.C.V.P programme, GCS students invited a guest speaker from the G.S.P.C.A.

The managing director of the organisation, Jenny, agreed to come and educate the class on its role as a non-profit organisation in our local community.

Since Jenny’s visit, the class are now looking into a class trip to the sanctuary to volunteer for the day and further their research.

From the meeting, students learned about the purpose of the organisation, the rates to adopt various animals and the strengths of the organisation.

It cost €150 to adopt a vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered dog and it cost €70 to adopt a cat. 

Due to the increasing numbers in dog breeding in Ireland, many dogs are sent to the the U.K., Sweden and Italy to be re-homed.
