Animal welfare activists from Co Kildare will be joining a national march against cruelty to pets in Dublin later his month. The Make Cruelty to Animals History demo will begin at the Garden of Remembrance and proceed down O'Connell Street en route to the Dail on Kildare Street. Participants will include representatives from Co Kildare animal welfare groups such as PAWS Animal Rescue Centre and Kildare Pet Detectives. The event is being organised by animal rights group ARAN which expects thousands of people to support the cause. A spokesman said: "You've seen the cruelty, you've shed the tears, you've appealed for something to be done. "Well now ARAN is giving people a chance to do something about it. "It's time to walk the walk - because otherwise this cruelty will linger on." END
