Reporting Cruelty to Dogs in Your Area

Over the last few months the charity volunteers have been receiving an increase in calls and social media messages reporting cruelty to dogs in their area.  We will always help in any way we can to support you but please contact your Animal Welfare office in the first instance.

The below link is to the animal welfare office in your council area, which you can also report to your local dog warden, and to your local PSNI on the non-emergency number 101.


If you wish to inform us of the incident or ask for support, or just as an update to a potential cruelty case, please email us on info@causewaycoastdogrescue.org, or telephone anytime as a member of the team will help in any way possible.

Together we can work to reduce the cruelty to dogs in N.Ireland, and the more everyone takes action to report the cruelty, the more we can do to remove the pain and suffering.  @CCDogRescue  #dogrescue #removeanimalcruelty #charity



Bobby is a beautiful eight-month-old special black Labrador, which is searching for his forever home with the Causeway Coast Dog Rescue. Bobby is special because a number of weeks ago he was involved in a sever accident and ended up having to have his front left leg amputated. With going through such a traumatic experience, you would think this young pup would be lying low and feeling sorry for himself, but not a chance! He is a bouncy mischievous puppy just like all the rest at this age! However, because of his special circumstances and needing to be supported to know what he can and shouldn’t be doing during his recovery period, he desperately needs a home that will be patient, caring and yet fun loving enough to give him plenty of exercise, but importantly make him part of the family.

Following Christmas, the charity has been inundated with calls to take in unwanted dogs. There are just too many to take in, resulting in working with other charities around the country to seek support in rehoming them. Chairman Margaret Dimsdale-Bobby said, “every January it is always the same – out with the old and in with the new – which is horrendous to even consider, particularly for our volunteers. Thankfully we also have lots of people looking to take in a dog and give them that forever home they seek, but the work load in working our way through the calls is exhausting and extremely time consuming. Bobby is very special which is why we are putting a call out to see if we get interest from a home that wouldn’t be aware of our charity. We still have other dogs searching for their home which I am sure will happen, but Bobby just needs that little bit extra TLC.”

Each time a dog is rehomed with the charity, a house check needs to take place and the family’s current circumstances needs to be discussed, which will be no different for Bobby’s potential new home. This gorgeous black Labrador deserves a fabulous lifelong ‘#fureverhome! So, if you think that is you, please ring the charity to discuss further, or email them with an over view of your current circumstances. www.causewaycoastdogrescue.orginfo@causewaycoastdogrescue.org 07595602702
