Mr Seán Canney TD, Minister of State for Community Development, Natural Resources and Digital Development, has today announced the publication of the 2018 dog control statistics.
The total number of dogs that were euthanised in local authority pounds in 2018 was 778, down from a high of over 21,000 in 2002, 996 in 2017 and 1,674 in 2016. The Minister pointed out that the majority of dogs that enter pounds are re-united with their owners, rehomed or transferred to animal welfare groups.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank local authorities for their ongoing work on dog control and related activities and for their assistance to my Department in the compilation of these statistics.”
The statistics are available here.
Finally, the Minister reminded the public that a public consultation on dog control in Ireland is currently open. Further details are available at the link here. The public consultation closes on Friday 6 September and the Minister urged all interested parties to make a submission before that date.
