This year, I have decided to create an extra section to my blog, it’s called Find A Home Friday (#findahomefriday). Every Friday I’m going to post a selection of dogs that are currently waiting for their furever homes in Irish pound and shelters.
Last year 2,896 dogs were put to sleep in Irish pounds, although that was a 7% reduction on the year before…it’s still a hell of a lot of dogs.
Please help me make a difference by sharing this post on your social using our hashtag #findahomefriday or if you are affiliated with any of these types of organisations please get in touch via my contact page.
Derry Pound: These two dogs have been surrendered to Derry pound and need urgent rehoming. One female and one male. The female is approx. 2 years old and the male is 4-yrs. Both are mixed bred.

Kildare Animal Foundation: Meet Nero, a stunning two year old staffie. He is a very friendly and affectionate dog. He is great with other dogs, both male and female.

Offaly SPCA: A bouncy, playful and happy little pup who loves cuddles. She likes the security and company of other dogs. House training is on-going and she is learning to walk nicely on the lead/harness. Lily has had her first vaccination and is micro chipped. As she is too young to neuter, the adopter will be asked to sign to confirm she will be neutered when old enough. If you would like to meet her please call Offaly Spca on 086 826 2986
ISPCA: Pepsi is a fabulous little lass waiting for her own second chance. She is so sweet but nervous of strangers so with a little time and a good groom, she will settle well into her new home. She would suit a home with older children or young kids who are gentle and respectful of dogs. Ideally, her home will have another confident dog for company, so she can follow their lead and settle quicker. Secure fencing or run is a must in her new home to keep her safe when she is outdoors. She will be a house dog, she is looking forward to a life of luxury and love. She is currently receiving lead training and this will need to continue in her new home so she can get her daily walks and enjoy being out & about meeting new people and dogs. She will be tested with cats and other animals for her new adopters, the details will be available soon. Have you room in your home & heart for this special little lady. These beautiful dogs were rescued from a puppy farm as a part of a large-scale raid in conjunction with the local authority. All required veterinary attention, grooming & extensive dental work.
