Mr Galdes said that €50,000 has been al­lo­cated to the fund, which will be di­vided up be­tween var­i­ous non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions and sanc­tu­ar­ies so that they can all con­clude the pend­ing an­i­mal-re­lated projects that are in the pipe­line.

“This is all be­ing done to safe­guard the an­i­mals’ rights as well as pro­vid­ing strength­ened treat­ment and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion fa­cil­i­ties for those that need it.”

He con­cluded by say­ing that while last year eight out of 11 ap­pli­ca­tions for fund­ing were ac­cepted, this year it ap­pears that all 12 ap­pli­ca­tions will be ac­cepted.
