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.

FREE ANIMAL HEALTH CHECKS
Yesterday was a busy day at the Pet Checks in the Shambles Yard. Kiera, Robert and Tina from PDSA managed to carry pout checks on 23 dogs for which we are very appreciative. Thanks to Tina, Robert and Kiera for all their help with the free animal health checks – their professionalism was amazing. If you didn’t manage to get to us yesterday the PDSA team will be at the Water Sport Centre in Craigavon today until 5pm.

Pilot scheme to help cut Dog Fouling, we hope to have this throughout the Borough in the future

A new pilot scheme aimed at tackling the issue of dog fouling has been launched in the Craigavon, Lurgan and Portadown areas of the Borough and Council is calling on volunteers to sign up and make a difference together. The Green Dog Walkers (GDW) scheme encourages dog owners and dog walkers to take a pledge to clean up after their dogs as well as acting as a friendly reminder to other dog walkers to do the same. Volunteers will receive a Doggie Welcome Pack containing the Green Dog Walkers® armband, dog bone shaped bag dispenser, doggie bags and clip on hand sanitizer – click here to find out more about the scheme http://bit.ly/1UreSDT

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.
