View Full Version : Irish pound figures

Miriam of the animal welfare lobby group ANVIL has compiled these very revealing figures for Irish dog pounds:


Destruction rates remain well over 80% for a huge number of counties and these are almost entirely pounds that will not allow any rescues access to the dogs. :( However look at how low Roscommon, Sligo, Leitrim and Dublin pound rates are -- that is largely due to very active rescue in these pounds. Some of you have helped me contribute to those figures in a smll way, by helping or homing dogs taken from Roscommon and Dublin region pounds. :)

If you are concerned about these figures I encourage you to support ANVIL and help them with letter writing campaigns etc.
