Collie & ivy Gardai hailed for another great dog rescue as puppies rescued from 'inappropriate' home


Gardai have been hailed for another job well done after rescuing a further five puppies from an “inappropriate” home on a Dublin site.

Finglas Community gardaí and the District Detective Unit were working alongside Fingal County Council when they noticed an abandoned vehicle with five Collie puppies living inside.

“The puppies lived in extremely inappropriate conditions, with no ventilation, no food or water,” the gardai said in a Facebook post.

“Gardaí along with the assistance of Dog Wardens were able to gain access to the vehicle and the dog wardens seized the puppies under section 16 of the Control of Dogs Act, 1986, who got in contact with the DSPCA.

“Enquiries are being carried out in order to ascertain the owner of the dogs. If you have any information you can contact Finglas Gardaí on 016667500.”


The post attracted dozens of well-done message to the gardai with one declaring: ‘Well done to the Guards! You're doing a fantastic job!’

‘Guards are doing a fantastic job,’ added another. ‘I wish the UK police done as much you . Keep up the good work.’

‘Aww bless them…Fair play for rescuing the poor pups!’ said one, while another person shared: ‘Well done .delighted to see it being taken seriously.’

This latest dog rescue follows the discovery yesterday of three Dachshund puppies in the boot of a car that gardai had spotted acting suspiciously.

In a Facebook post, Ronanstown gardaí said they stopped the vehicle in the early hours of December 15, and found the dogs that are suspected to have been stolen.

That post also generated numerous replies with members of the public thanking the gardai for their actions.

"Great job lads!!’ one person wrote while another added, ‘Well done Garda and thank you.’

"‘Great work well done,’ added another, with one person writing: ‘Well done Garda thank you for being so vigilant.’
