Help enforce an unimplemented law to stop the abuse and neglect of countless animals across Ireland, by demanding an animal welfare inspector for each county.

At present there is no official person a member of the public can call upon to enforce the new Animal Welfare act 2013 . The act itself is a major step forward but without anyone appointed to enforce it, it is useless.
Consequently the situation regarding animal neglect and abuse is alarmingly rampant especially in counties where the ISPCA have no Inspector either. Mayo, Galway and Clare to name three such counties have literally no one appointed to this position. I have had to standby and witness the death of a foal due to sheer neglect, donkeys becoming permanently crippled as hooves are not clipped , and the extreme neglect of dogs tied without shelter or water, to mention only a few recent incidents.

I have contacted local animal charities, the department of agriculture and the Garda to step in and enforce the law, but as there is no official person specifically appointed with authority to act, literally nothing is done, the charities and the Gardai claiming they have no authority and the department restricted by time and a reluctance to enforce the law.

Literally thousands of animals are suffering due to the apathy of a government unconcerned for animal welfare. How shameful when Ireland's main source of income is literally on the backs of these animals. 

Please help me demand at least one appointed Animal Welfare Inspector to each county. This will impact the lives of countless animals and help raise the general standard of Animal Welfare.
