The Irish Blue Cross was established in 1945 and introduced its first mobile animal dispensary onto the streets of Dublin in the early fifties. Since then, the charity has treated, vaccinated and arranged surgeries for well over 600,000 small animals through its mobile clinic service and subsidised welfare schemes run in co-operation with veterinary practices.

The Irish Bluecross

In 2009, the charity opened the doors of its fixed small-animal clinic at Inchicore - the first charity clinic of its kind in Ireland where genuinely needy pet owners can bring their pets for a range of low cost services including check-ups, vaccinations, surgeries and welfare requirements.  The clinic was an immediate success and has grown from strength to strength in recent times.

The Irish Bluecross

Annually, attendance figures at our mobiles & Inchicore clinic are in the region of 27,000 per annum.

Key sources of funds for our small-animal services are the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries & Food; the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government and Dublin based local authorities. Our annual mailing and fundraising campaigns, in aid of services and capital requirements are generously supported by the general public.

The Irish Blue Cross horse ambulances are on stand-by at all Irish race meetings.

The Irish Bluecross

Each year, we provide approximately 400 equine ambulance service days.  The service is also present at key equine events such as the RDS Horse Show, Ballindenisk Horse Trials, etc.  Our equine ambulance service is mainly funded by Horse Racing Ireland.  The Irish Racehorse Trainers Association also support the work.
