ISPCA inspectors and the county dog warden rescued eighty-six dogs, including 23 puppies from an unlicensed dog breeder in Roscommon, US on August 3rd, 2018. It’s the most popular dog news in the US.
According to ISPC inspector, the dogs were being kept in very poor condition and taken care of by only one person. Nineteen of the dogs were suffering from a variety of health issues including mange, eye conditions, and ear infections and are now receiving veterinary treatment.
Last Thursday, 17 puppies were removed from a house where the ISPCA said the owner had allowed his dogs to breed “without consideration for the consequences”.
All of the dogs will need to be vaccinated, neutered and microchipped before being responsibly rehomed in Ireland.
The dogs, including Shih Tzu’s, Cocker Spaniels, Jack Russell terriers, Pugs, French bulldogs and other various mixed breeds, are currently being cared for at the ISPCA’s animal centres in Longford and Donegal and will not be available for rehoming for several weeks, while twenty-five dogs have been transferred to Dogs Trust.
Senior ISPCA Inspector Kevin McGinley said: “The ISPCA is grateful to have secured the removal of all dogs from this unlicensed premises. With so many dogs in our care, we are appealing to the public to support us financially with this challenge and by offering responsible homes for the pups and dogs.”
