With just over a month to go until Christmas, non-profit Irish company ELVES has 
announced the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA), as its 
official charity partner. 
ELVES, End-of-Life-Vehicle (ELV) compliance scheme, is a non-profit company set 
up by vehicle manufacturers to fund the recycling of scrap cars and small vans in 
Ireland. After several years assisting with collections for the ISPCA at popular events 
such as the Forever Young Festival, ELVES wished to become more involved with 
Ireland’s largest national animal welfare charity and support them with the life- 
changing differences they make to animals across the country. 
PJ Gallagher and Jim McCabe, beloved hosts and cereal messers on ‘Morning Glory’ 
on Radio Nova, recognise the vital role played by the ISPCA in safeguarding the well- 
being of animals across Ireland. The dynamic duo were on hand to celebrate the 
official charity partnership. This significant contribution underscores ELVES 
dedication to fostering a compassionate society and addressing the needs of animals 
in distress. Reflecting a shared commitment to making a positive impact on the lives 
of animals and promoting responsible pet ownership. 
Pat Kierans, Business Development Manager of ELVES comments on the 
official charity partnership “After several years working with the ISPCA, ELVES is 
delighted to establish the ISPCA as its official charity partner. ELVES looks forward 
to continuing the wonderful relationship and supporting the ISPCA and their 
marvellous hard working and dedicated staff, looking after animals nationwide.” 
Kierans also added, “we feel this is the right time, especially post-covid with many 
animals, especially dogs, needing extra care and attention”. 
Dr Cyril Sullivan, CEO of the ISPCA comments: “We are delighted to officially 
partner with ELVES, enabling us to continue our vital animal welfare work rescuing 
and rehabilitating Ireland’s most cruelly treated, neglected, and abused animals. 
ELVES have been a fantastic supporter of the ISPCA over many years, and we are 
delighted to now become an official ELVES charity partner. Their generous donation 
will help us make a difference to the animals we rescue from the most appalling 
situations imaginable, and we look forward to further developing our partnership 
with ELVES in the future.” 
Every year the ISPCA help, rescue, treat and responsibly rehome tens of thousands 
of animals nationally and ELVES is proud to be part of promoting animal welfare. 
Radio Nova’s PJ Gallagher and Jim McCabe said, “As two animal lovers, we 
are thrilled to champion the ISPCA and its dedication to the welfare of animals . 
Remember dogs, and all pets are not just for Christmas they are companions for life 
– kind of like our listeners, without the peeing outside and licking them. We hope 
that by promoting ELVES generous contribution it will inspire others to jump on 
board and contribute to the incredible work carried out by the ISPCA. There is an 
enduring bond between humans and their animal companions, look at me and Jim, 
not many people know that he’s 98% gorilla. We want to highlight the importance of 
responsible care throughout the entire life of a pet”.
