Dog Pound

Dog Pound Armagh

The Dog Pound looks after lost or stray dogs. It is our job to keep the dogs safe until their owner contacts us or if necessary, find the dogs a new home. Dog Control Service is part of the Environmental Health Department of the Council, at the Palace Demesne off the Friary Road, Armagh.

The information on this page is pulled from our Facebook Wall.  This is where we will post information about lost or stolen dogs and dogs who need a new home. The pound contains 10 pens, which are block built with galvanised dog runs with fresh water drinking systems. The Council’s Dog Control Service responds to calls from members of the public to collect stray dogs within the Council area and impound them in the Pound, the service is also used to handle owners requests for residents who no longer want the dog (fees apply). To report a lost or stolen dog, call us on 028 3752 9623,  post a message on our Facebook Wall. We can then check if the dog has been picked up by our Dog Warden.

Appeal of balls of wool to make dog blankets.

Residents of a local Care Home knit blankets and donate them on to the Dog Pound for the dogs in our care and to give out with Dog rehomed from here.

Any spare or new wool can be left to the Pound between 9:00am – 10:00am Monday to Friday or the Environmental Health Office in the Palace Stables between 9:00am – 5:00pm Monday to Friday.

Many thanks

As of midnight tonight Armagh City and District Council becomes part of the new Super Council – Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council

The Council will be enforcing new policies for Dog Control which includes a zero-tolerance policy for straying and not having a valid dog licence (within 7 days of a notice issued) resulting in a £80 fixed penalty per offence.

For further information, please contact us via a private message or call 028 3752 9623.

SHEEP ATTACKS AND SHEEP WORRYING

Sheep attacks and sheep worrying is a major issue for farmers especially during the lambing season (December to May).

Sheep worrying occurs when dogs chase sheep, injure them and/or kill them. Sheep are flight animals i.e. they flee/run when they perceive danger. The above causes economic losses and makes for a difficult working environment for the farmer.

Even though dogs have been domesticated for a long time, they have not lost their basic instincts. These instincts include a strong predatory drive. The chase instinct can be triggered by the sight of or the movement of animals. Thus humans should not be shocked that the family pet dog would chase or attack/worry sheep. If your family pet dog is out of your sight/control for even a short time, i.e.10 minutes at any time of the day, it could become involved in sheep attacks. Any breed of dog if given the opportunity can be involved in a sheep attack/worrying/killing episode.

In this the Lambing Season, extra vigilance is required by dog owners – be you a rural dweller or if you walk your dog in the countryside, give some consideration to sheep farmers and the welfare of their sheep. Any dog including family pets can become involved in a sheep kill if we (humans) give them the opportunity. The Dog owner is liable for any damages arising.

Dogs must be kept under control at all times preferably on a lead. In certain circumstances it is legal for farmers to shoot dogs on sight if they are trespassing their lands. So be warned!

Dog owners are also reminded that your dog must be licensed and micro-chipped. A fixed penalty of £80 can be served for a dog with no license and for a dog straying.
