Over the past 10 years we have rehomed hundreds of Labradors and Labrador crosses from Ireland, that would have otherwise been put to sleep. There are not enough homes for them and large breed dogs are not favoured in Ireland. Help with the over population of dogs has always been given by us and many other UK and European charities.
At the beginning of this year the EU enforced stricter regulations for all dogs travelling to and from Southern Ireland, requiring that they have a rabies vaccination and a passport before travelling to the UK. The impact of this has been devastating, and thousands of dogs, all breeds, all shapes and sizes, both young and old are being euthanised. The cost of vaccinating for rabies and organising a passport for each dog is more than animal charities are able to afford. We would like to point out that Ireland has never had a case of rabies, so this we feel is totally unnecessary for the dogs coming to England. Should any one of these dogs have lived a few miles away in Northern Ireland they would be able to travel to the UK without a rabies vaccination or a passport!
Every day we are getting pleas from Ireland to help save the beautiful Labradors from being destroyed, this is truly heart breaking. Every dog we commit to help will need to be fostered, the cost of food and any veterinary treatment paid for, neutered, vaccinated, given their rabies vaccination, passported and transported to the UK by an authorised dog transporter. The cost of this will be approximately £330 per dog. We are therefore asking for your help to raise as much money as we possibly can, to save as many Labradors as possible.
To ensure that you are able to see the lovely dogs, your donations will have enabled us to offer a rescue place to, we will post photos of each dog we bring to the UK.
Your help is greatly appreciated, not only by us and the rescues in Ireland but of course the gorgeous dogs we will be able to save.
