308 dogs put down at pound

The council also linked up with a number of welfare groups which do excellent work on rehoming”, added the spokesperson.Limerick Animal Welfare founder Marion Fitzgibbon said that the number of dogs put to sleep has decreased in recent years, but that the number of unwanted dogs in Ireland is still far too high.“Animal shelters just can’t cope with the number of dogs. The figures are so high because so many unwanted dogs are being born. Cats are even worse, they are treated like vermin. There is absolutely no cat control at all.”She added that if Limerick Animal Welfare wasn’t taking in so many dogs, the Council “would be putting down four times as many”.Nationally, 14,559 dogs found their way into Irish pounds in 2014, a reduction of 1,000 dogs compared to the previous year.Some 43 per cent were saved by animal rescue groups, and 2,896 dogs were put to sleep – a reduction of 620 dogs from the 2013 figures.The pounds directly rehomed 3,129 of the dogs, while 2,252 were reclaimed by owners.To view dogs available for rehoming, go to www.limerick.ie/council/rehome-dog-limerick-dog-shelter.

But as soon as big corporations started to produce similar products for half the price, Fakharian was forced to pivot yet again. So, he decided to make and sell 2020-themed dumpster fire toys and Christmas tree ornaments on Etsy.“‘Dumpster fire’ is just the perfect description of the year we’ve had,” Fakharian said. “COVID-19 is like a fire in a dumpster burning everything in sight so we thought this product would really resonate with people.”And so far, Etsy users are loving it.“This ornament is so great and brought some levity to a really tough year,” one customer wrote in a review.Image courtesy: RexRoi3D / etsy.com/“Awesome product and perfect statement on what we all think of 2020,” another wrote.The company is also selling 2020-themed toilet paper ornaments.“It’s been a challenging year,” Fakharian said. “For people to have something to laugh at and make light of during such a horrible year, I’m happy to provide it.”last_img read more
