Sadly there will be no Easter Sale this year on Sunday April 12th. In line with the requirements on everybody for dealing with the Covid 19 Virus, and with the current ruling, there was no possibility of us proceeding. We hope to have our next one at the June Bank Holiday. Obviously that depends on the situation at the time and what restrictions are still in force. We will keep all our supporters informed. Those of you who have dogs might like to know that if they go online and enter indoor games for dogs, they will not be disappointed. One note of warning. Remember when this virus has been controlled, people will presumably be returning to work. Your pet will have been used to your attention 24/7. It is probably a good idea to make sure your pet has some time to be quiet and on his or her own

Macey is a three year old male, Springer Spaniel. He is house-trained, and good with children. Sadly the owner's not able to give Macey the lifestyle he needs. Too long left in house all day, so sadly she has to let him go. Macey is really a dote! . Please call 087 961 6586 if you're interested. Thanks!

Poor little Shylo arrived this morning at Galway City Dog Pound. He was apparently straying and found. Shylo is petrified and after a quick once over by the warden it’s evident that he hasn’t known much love in his life. He has an old scar that looks like he once had a collar embedded in his neck , his teeth aren’t in a great way and he has a limp in his front leg. He shakes to the touch so for now we will leave him be and let him get used to his new surroundings before he is checked by a vet tomorrow. It really it a hard one to swallow when life in the pound is probably going to be kinder to this little soul than life has been to him so far. If you can help with Shylo, please ring 087 961 6586. Thanks!

Sugar is a Labrador mixed breed. She is around five years of age and altogether a sweet natured dog. She is neutered and vaccinated She is used to children and is quite well trained. She is very good on a lead and loves to be out and about. She lives indoors and has a very cosy bed indeed. She is a very much loved dog who is being let go very, very reluctantly by her owners. A very unexpected home situation has developed and it might well result in Sugar spending too much time on her own. Her owners therefore think she might have a better life elsewhere. She would make an ideal companion for one or two adults who enjoy walking. Anybody who has lost a pet and is now thinking of starting out again and wants a mature, home loving dog might also find Sugar a suitable dog. If you are interested, please phone 087 961 6586. Thanks!

Cooper is a lovely, friendly, playful Labrador. But he desperately needs a home. He's 5/6 vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and just wants to be loved. If you think you can help please phone 087 961 6586 Thanks!

Very sadly we had to put Rekku to sleep today. He was one of our first dogs we placed in sanctuary. He came from a very sad situation and despite all our best efforts we were not able to find anybody willing to give him a home. Sign of the times perhaps.
So we were very lucky indeed to find Theresa, Michael and Noelle who were kind enough to give him for the last two years the love and security that he needed, especially as he was nearly twelve years of age. He was a gentle, slightly aloof character, who would have made somebody a loyal companion, but that was not to be.
We are indebted to the three people mentioned above for the commitment they showed at a time when Rekku was at risk, and have continued to be great supporters to RCDR.

This is Jakey. He is ten years old and needs somewhere peaceful and quiet to while away his elderly years. There must be some dog lover who has a garden where Jake can exercise, lie in the sun, sleep and not bother anyone. There is no worry here over possible medical bills and such situations. We at RCDR will manage any health issues. All we are asking for is someone to let this old fellow have a few years of a quiet life. If you feel you can help us or even wish to donate to help with his upkeep, please ring 087 961 6586. Thank you!
