DSPCA gets 700 offers for seized puppies
AN animal care charity has been "inundated" with offers from the public to re-home almost 100 puppies at the centre of two suspected animal trafficking cases.
Investigations are continuing into the discovery of 92 pups by gardai in two seizures in Dublin. One batch of 56 puppies was found at Dublin port in a van destined for the UK.
Dublin SPCA, which is caring for the puppies, said it had so far received between 600 and 700 offers to re-home them and was examining all of the applications.
"We have a strict re-homing policy and we will be contacting people to arrange to interview them," said DSPCA spokeswoman Gillian Bird.
