Dogs abandoned and left wandering the streets are being put down

Almost 330 dogs have been destroyed in North Tipperary since January 2012, The Tipperary Star can reveal -most of the dogs were found abandoned or wandering the countryside.

The startling figures were revealed at the monthly meeting of North Tipperary County Council this week and in the same period just 77 have been re-homed, according to Cllr Seamus Morris who said that a discussion on the matter needed to be initiated. Social media should be used to advertise dogs for re-homing he added and he encouraged anyone looking for a dog to check out the pound.
