The Ispca is calling on the Department of Education to introduce a module on animal welfare and responsible pet ownership into the National School curriculum. There is also a shortage of animal welfare inspectors in Ireland.
The ISCPA's annual report shows 21 cases were brought to court last year - the highest ever number.
Meanwhile, over 16,000 calls were made to the National Animal Cruelty Helpline.
CEO of the ISPCA, Dr Andrew Kelly, says children need to learn how to look after animals at a young age.
"Education is obviously absolutely crucial, and we've been calling for an animal welfare module to be taught included in the national school curriculum, specifically looking at responsible animal ownership so that children understand what the needs of animals are," he said.
With this is mind, Barking Mad about Dogs | Limerick will be hosting this workshop for kids to help create awareness for the need to be a Responsible Pet Owner from a young age - whilst helping to make Limerick a dog friendlier place
