October 30th, 2020 Halloween Pet Tips

Sadly we have to cease from trading for the moment due to Covid regulations. We would like to thank all our supporterswho have visited us during the last five weeks. We do however plan to reopen once the beginning of December comes. Obviously with Christmas less than four weeks away by that date, there will we hope be increased demand so we plan to open the shop far more regularly. This we trust will allow people time to browse and see if there is anything they might like to purchase. See you then...

We would ask all those people who have dogs in their care to be extra careful at the present. There seems to be an increase in the number of dogs missing. There have been many stories of dogs being stolen. Please do not leave a dog unattended in the front garden for long periods, especially bordering on a busy road. It is advised to keep a dog/ dogs in the back garden and once again to check regularly on them. If your dog has gone missing, then it is advisable to ring the local Gardai station, vets, or any local shelters, rescue centres nearby.
