Mission Statement

The mission statement of The Irish Blue Cross is to promote responsible pet ownership and to offer affordable veterinary care to pet owners whose financial circumstances prohibit access to private veterinary care, as defined by a list of means tested benefits (see page 2 of our Welcome leaflet ).

  • Job Seeker’s Allowance or Benefit
  • Supplementary Welfare Allowance
  • Disability Allowance
  • Blind Pension
  • Deserted Wife’s Allowance
  • One-Parent Family Allowance
  • Farm Assistance
  • Guardian’s Payment (Non-Contributory)
  • Qualified Adult Allowance
  • Pre-Retirement Allowance
  • Non-Contributory State Pension
  • Widow’s, Widower’s or Surviving Civil Partner’s (Non-Contributory) Pension
  • Carer’s Allowance
  • Medical Card

You will be required to show proof of means tested Government benefits, as listed in our eligibility criteria, to avail of our charitable veterinary services. You must bring your medical card or a receipt from the post office with the name of your payment on it. Alternatively, you will be asked to provide a letter from the Social Welfare Office stating the name of the benefit you are receiving. This must be dated within the last 3 months. A social services card will not suffice as proof unless the benefit you are receiving is named on the card.

Be a responsible dog owner!

If your dog has fouled, please ensure to clean up after. Always carry poo-bags or we can supply you with one from our mobile clinic.

Keep your dog under control at all times and out of children's play areas. For the safety and comfort for all our clients, we would kindly request clients to keep their dog on a lead and cats in a carrier.
