Jude is one of 346 dogs and 257 cats the ISPCA rehomed between late 2016 and early 2018. The animals came from a research facility in Co. Mayo which closed its doors in 2016.
During this period the ISPCA undertook a major operation of neutering, microchipping, vaccinating and health checking all of the dogs and cats recovered from the facility. They also socialised many of the dogs, and introduced them to new and mock home environments so they could adapt to their future homes. After a great deal of care and preparation, over 600 animals were rehomed.
Jude is one such beagle, adopted several months ago, who has grown tremendously since leaving the research facility she was born into.
“We fell in love with her the moment we met her,” writes Jude’s new family Katherine and Keith.
“We couldn't have asked for a sweeter, more gentle creature to share our home,” they continue. “She is an absolutely fantastic addition to our family.”
Katherine and Keith’s three children adore Jude, and have come to see her as part of the family. Jude has even claimed her own space on the sofa!
We are so happy to see pets like Jude thriving in their new homes with adopted families. Thank you Katherine and Keith for the update!
