Gardaí in Kilkenny have been busy on paw patrol as they investigate the theft of two French Bulldogs from the O’Loughlin Road area of the city. 

The theft occurred on New Year’s Eve and the two female dogs were noticed missing at 4 pm.

They were last seen at 1 am that morning.

Both of the dogs are a fawn or brown in colour and their names are Pippa and Zara.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact gardaí in Kilkenny on (056) 7775000.

Meanwhile, gardai in Carlow last week helped save an abandoned donkey in poor health.

"At 6am last Wednesday morning, Carlow Gardai became aware of a donkey in a field on the outskirts of Carlow Town, totally neglected and in very bad shape", the post states.

‘Thankfully, Garda Sharon O' Donnell working together with My Lovely Horse Rescue moved quickly to rescue the poor animal.

"Carlow Gardai are continuing their investigation into the neglect of this animal. My Lovely Horse Rescue and Gardai in Carlow and Kilkenny work closely together to ensure animal welfare remains a priority. Together we can all make a huge difference."

My lovely Horse Rescue (MLHR) added: "This poor donkey was in a field, totally neglected, wormy, very thin and soaked right through. Donkeys' coats are different to horses, they get wet and can’t dry easily, they really aren’t made for the wet Irish weather.

"Once again no chip, left on council land! Laws need to be made so strict and all agencies need to work together to improve the lives of our poor animals.

"MLHR work closely with Gardaí, they have the authority to help animals, together we can all make a huge difference.

"Thank you MLHR Olive and Garda Sharon for moving so quickly to ensure donkey's safety. (Thank you) UCD vet Rodney for coming to see her straight away.

‘We haven’t stopped all through Christmas and we won’t stop! Animals come first at MLHR."
