PAWS FOR THOUGHT

Please Paws for Thought At this time of year, as it is always difficult for dog rescue charities and the CCDR is no exception.  Every day the phone calls and emails are received, asking to take in an unwanted dog for many different reasons. But at this time of year as Christmas is getting closer and the nights are getting colder, the volunteers become more concerned on the level of calls increasing particularly as many of the other rescue charities are saying they are already full and redirecting requests to the Causeway Coast Dog Rescue.

Its is heartbreaking as there is a constant level of cruelty ranging from leaving a dog out overnight without any shelter, ranging to physical abuse and neglect. We always recommend that individuals contact their local dog warden https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/contacts/local-councils-in-northern-ireland  if the issue is effecting them or your neighbours personally such as barking, excessive noise etc, and to contact the animal welfare on  https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/contacts/animal-welfare-local-councils  if the dog is being mistreated or neglected. In extreme cases, please contact the non emergency PSNI number on 101 and report it, so that it can also be followed up through Animal Welfare.

We believe at the CCDR that every dog deserves a second chance, and we will always aim to do what we can to help, as it is important that each family or individual is paired with the right dog, as our priority is the dog searching for that #fureverhome !

There are so many gorgeous potential companions ready to move to their new home and we want to see them getting there. Keep up to date with dogs coming in on http://causewaycoastdogrescue.org/portfolio_category/dogs-for-adoption/ any of these dogs are ready for their new home.

THANK YOU
