This photo shows the dreadful result on a sheep attacked by dogs near Kinvara. Dog owners please remeber It is your responsibility to keep your pets under control. Make sure your dog is not free to roam at night or when you are not at home. This is what can happen, sheep are very vulnerable at this time of year around lambing time. Also, take into account the reactions of some sheepbreeders to dogs' attacks to their flocks...your dog too may be in danger of serious injuries! Please share!

We are definitely in favour of adopting a dog rather than buying, where possible. There are so many dogs and cats in need of homes that find themselves in the pound through no fault of their own. They didn’t ask to be brought into this world, all they know is that someone didn’t want them and they are now waiting, and hoping, that a loving family will pick them and choose to love them. Please, be aware they aren't toys and surely they need and deserve a lot of your time, care and attention. If you're prepared to this long term commitment, consider giving a loving home to these unlucky pets. Thanks!

From 1 February 2020, there will be new rules governing the sale or supply of pets. If you sell or supply five or more pets in a calendar year you must:

- Register with the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
- Maintain records regarding pet animals kept for sale or supply
- Include certain information if you are advertising the sale of an animal, including the microchip number in the case of dogs
- Not sell or supply pets under a certain age (8 weeks in the case of dogs)

These rules are set out in the Animal Health and Welfare (Sale or Supply of Pet Regulations) 2019 and in an Information Note (pdf) from the Department of Agriculture.
The Department has also introduced a new Code of Practice for sellers or suppliers of pet animals.
