The dynamic duo were on hand to celebrate the official charity partnership. This significant contribution underscores ELVES dedication to fostering a compassionate society and addressing the needs of animals in distress.

Dr Cyril Sullivan, CEO of the ISPCA comments: “We are delighted to officially partner with ELVES, enabling us to continue our vital animal welfare work rescuing and rehabilitating Ireland’s most cruelly treated, neglected, and abused animals. ELVES have been a fantastic supporter of the ISPCA over many years, and we are delighted to now become an official ELVES charity partner.

Radio Nova’s PJ Gallagher and Jim McCabe said, “As two animal lovers, we are thrilled to champion the ISPCA and its dedication to the welfare of animals . Remember dogs, and all pets are not just for Christmas they are companions for life – kind of like our listeners, without the peeing outside and licking them. We hope that by promoting ELVES generous contribution it will inspire others to jump on board and contribute to the incredible work carried out by the ISPCA. There is an enduring bond between humans and their animal companions, look at me and Jim, not many people know that he’s 98% gorilla. We want to highlight the importance of responsible care throughout the entire life of a pet”.
