ISPCA reissues appeal for information about an injured dog tied to gate near Centre


13th November 2019

The ISPCA is reissuing an appeal for information in relation to a young German shepherd/Akita dog left chained near the entrance to the ISPCA’s National Animal Centre last Sunday night 10th November 2019.

The dog was rushed to a local veterinary practice where it was discovered that it had a horrendous leg injury with part of the dog’s leg missing.

After full assessment it was determined, based on veterinary advice, that due to the severity of the suffering that the dog was enduring and the low probability of successful treatment, the dog should be euthanised on humane grounds to prevent further suffering.

Chief Inspector Conor Dowling said:  “We are extremely anxious for any information that will help us establish how this dog came to be in this situation, how the injury occurred and who abandoned him on a cold, wet evening. The pain and suffering that the dog endured is quite unimaginable and we would appeal to anybody who knows anything at all to make contact”.

We are unable to share additional images due to the extremely graphic nature of the injury. 

Anybody with any information is asked to contact the ISPCA National Animal Cruelty Helpline in confidence on 1890 515 515 or report online here 

Unfortunately this is the reality of what ISPCA encounters on a regular basis.  

Please continue to support our work.  Thank you.
