The Irish Blue Cross is an animal care charity (Charity Registration Number 20007959), founded in Ireland in 1945, well know for the provision of pet care amongst the least well off pet owners in the Dublin region. Our teams deliver in the regions of 27,000 veterinary treatments and procedures annually at our ten mobile veterinary clinics and the main Inchicore Clinic. Our vets ensure pets are restored to full health and receive the preventative care they require to defend against disease. Responsible pet ownership is heavily promoted at our clinics and owners are made aware of the benefits of having pets neutered, vaccinated and microchipped which becomes mandatory for all dogs from early 2016 onwards. The mobile clinics are located on a weekly basis as follows: Ballybrack, Ballyfermot, Blanchardstown, Cabra, Crumlin, Donnycarney, Finglas, Smithfield, Tallaght and Walkinstown. All clinics operate in the evenings and are run by dedicated volunteers drivers, assistants and veterinary personnel. The core administrative activities of The Irish Blue Cross are carried by a team of 17 staff and a voluntary management committee.

The Irish Blue Cross horse ambulance service operates at all Irish race meetings and at main equestrian events such as the RDS Horse Show and Ballindenisk and Tattersalls International Horse Trials each year. Our operatives work closely with veterinary officers to assist equine that become injured or need assistance during the course of racing or eventing.

15A Goldenbridge Industrial Estate is the charity's main base and garaging facility for its mobile veterinary clinics. It is also the location of The Inchicore Small-Animal Clinic, which has flourished since its establishment in 2009. There is an average of 38 patients attending the Inchicore Clinic on a daily basis.

It is important to note that the Small-Animal Services of The Irish Blue Cross are primarily for geuinely needy pet owners, who are in receipt of Social Welfare Benefits.
