Tail with a happy ending: Six dogs rescued after van stopped and searched in Waterford

Six beautiful dogs were rescued after gardai stopped and searched a Northern Ireland-registered in Waterford.

Waterford Animal Welfare (WAW) volunteers were called in to assist gardai to care for the dogs after the van was stopped yesterday.

A spokesperson for the WAW said: “These dogs where sized as ownership and destination of the dogs was questionable and could not be proved!

“These six wonderful dogs have all received health checks [at the] Suirside Vetinary Clinic and will be cared for by us.”

WAW confirmed one of the dogs has already being reunited with her rightful owner thanks to her microchip.

They have urged members of the public to help them to find homes for the dogs, saying they are currently “overrun”.
