ISPCA comments on shelters are 'appalling'
I refer to comments attributed to Noel Griffin, chief executive, ISPCA (Irish Independent, April 18). Mr Griffin alleges that many dogs are transported to Britain and rehomed in appalling conditions.
Leitrim County Council works closely with a local animal welfare charity, Leitrim Animal Welfare. We have successfully rehomed over 4,000 dogs in the past 10 years in Ireland, the UK and other European countries.
We consistently have the highest rehoming rate in the Ireland -- over 95pc of all stray or unwanted dogs, which came into our shelter since 2001, have been rehomed.
