Pressure groups change kilkenny councillers decision and saves Greyhounds and terriers

The KILKENNY DOGS will be given to rescues for re-homing, they are saved.

We have just had it confirmed from Jim Ryan , Kilkenny County Council that a decision has been made via his superior Tony Walsh ,Director of services that the seized dogs will be not killed but will be given out to rescues for re-homing. Seven dogs were already returned to the travellers –THE REST ARE SAVED.
We had stressed the dogs did not deserve to die and that some of them were pregnant and that a prompt decision was vital.
We had been preparing for to demonstrate but thankfully people power and all the emails and calls have won the day.
Thank you to all who cared enough to get involved. Thank you to Kilkenny county Council for making the humane decision.
We wish the dogs a full and happy life.
I have offered help to the Council with the logistics of moving or relocating these animals. Phone me if you can be on standby if needed.
