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 Armagh City and District 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 District 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, email Dogcontrol@armagh.gov.uk or 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.

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 :)

Elaine ComptonDoes ‘at owners request’ mean that the owners no longer want the dog? Have seen this on so many posts. Why do people think it’s okay to get a dog, or get a dog on a whim and then just give it up when they no longer want it. So selfish and cruel!

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 £75 can be served for a dog with no license and for a dog straying.

Below is a poem which has been shortlisted for the Lena Mackrel Schools’ Poetry competition 2015.

It was written by Conor Donnelly, a Primary 6 student at St. Patrick’s Primary School in Armagh and makes reference the dog pound and the happy ending Getting his dog back 😄

Hope you all enjoy it. The poem is also being considered for the Ulster Bank Armagh Social Awareness Award.

Grinder the Dog 🐾

Grinder the lurcher runs about,
Likes to hunt, chases rabbits all day.
Big and strong,
Full of muscles
But inside still a big puppy!
Likes to be patted
Loves her food,
And sleeps curled up like a snake.
Once she ran away but we found her in the Pound
And only then did I realise how much I loved her.

Dog Fouling is a massive problem in the City and District area. Enforcement Officers will be leafleting problem areas and checking with dog walkers for licences and dog poop bags.

If you dog fouls and you do not clean it up you will be issued with an £80 Fixed Penalty for the offence.

Please help keep Our City and District clean by always cleaning up after your dog :)

We need the public’s help with this issue, if you can help identify a dog owner causing problems in your area, please report them to the Dog Control Section of the Council on 028 3752 9623 or dogcontrol@armagh.gov.uk (all complainants information is kept confidentially by the Department)
