Save A Dog
Stray dogs are brought to Longford County Pound by the dog warden. Stray dogs must be kept in the pound for a minimum of 5 days to allow for re-claiming. After this time they can be re-homed or put to sleep. Some dogs are not suitable for re-homing due to their temperament, or disease etc however It is our policy to try to re-home as many suitable dogs as possible. We no longer have the ability to accept surrendered dogs into our care.
Current dogs we have for rehoming.
