Meet The Croga Family (meaning courageous)

A short time ago we were asked to assist the local authority in the removal of a large number of dogs from a private property. We knew it was going to be tough but we felt that if it was possible at all then we should do our very best to save these unfortunate creatures. These dogs definitely needed us.

The day was very difficult and we spent hours ferrying these dogs from the only home they had known, to a strange but safe environment. Our team based themselves at the pound, vaccinating, worming & microchipping the groups of bewildered dogs as they arrived and moving them on to private boarding kennels for further assessment. They are all Collie type dogs and all of them are struggling to cope with their change in circumstance. To be fair, they were well fed and were not in poor physical shape, but their coping skills are not good and they have still a long road ahead of them. This is a very clear demonstration of how numbers of animals can get out of control so quickly when you do not neuter.

We took 34 dogs from this situation and as there may still be legal consequences, we will not say anything further or post any photographs from the site.

What we will say is that we have 34 new dogs that will all need a strong and supportive foster home until they have the courage to embrace their new lives.

We would like to thank Galway County Council for being so pro-active and sensitive and also the fantastic kennels who have stepped up to help the dogs, and without whom we could not have coped. Helen O'Brien, Michael Gilmore and GalwayKennels thank you so much.

It was a very tough day for the MADRA team too, some of the sights will haunt us for a long time to come, but I am so proud of their compassion, courage and professionalism when dealing with a very sad situation.
