ISPCA's row is with unscrupulous dealers

I refer to the letter from James Madden (Letters, April 20) regarding the ISPCA and comments in connection with dogs being rehomed in the UK.

I am very aware of the excellent work of Leitrim County Council and I never intended to slur Leitrim or any other county council. Nor was there any slur towards any of the fine rescue societies throughout the country.

My issue was always with the unscrupulous dealer who has no regard for the welfare of the dog and simply wants to profit from the sale of such defenceless animals.
