The County Council’s Dog Warden service has mentioned that it’s experiencing unprecedented strain at this second in time.
The council service is seeing an enormous variety of canines coming into their care right now, and huge ready lists for all kennels.
The council’s personal shelter is totally full up, and they’re working with many charity companions to try to transfer animals into houses the place they’re needed and cared for.
“Galway’s animal charities are doing trojan work and experiencing extraordinarily excessive volumes of canines and full kennels,”
“Our canine wardens are working ready lists and filling areas as quickly as they grow to be obtainable in our shelter.”
“Please be affected person as we navigate by this unprecedented surge of canines, as has been reported nationally.”
“Overcrowded kennels, whether or not within the native authority or our animal charities, are unsafe and nerve-racking for our canines, so most numbers have to be adhered to within the curiosity of animal welfare.”
The council’s canine warden service had this recommendation to offer to pet house owners, and animal lovers:
- Please guarantee your canine is microchipped and registered so it may be returned to you shortly if it will get out and doesn’t find yourself in a shelter, blocking house for different canines to undergo the system.
- Please neuter your pets to stop undesirable litters of pups.
- Please assist our Galway animal charities on this robust time in any approach you’ll be able to: donate, fundraise, volunteer, foster, undertake & share rehoming posts on social media.
- In case you are contemplating getting a brand new pet, please please please rehome a canine out of your native animal charity – many stunning canines are ready for that fortunate rescue spot!
