    Now the next bit of good news. Allsorts have started a full blown cat rescue aswell. It started a few months back with me begging Gail to help all the unwanted cats and kittens we had. Toni from Klaws cat rescue in Kenmare was flooding with cats. Toni never says no, she works endlessly to save them all.
    So Gail has a stunning cattery in her kennels…she wasnt using, so she said lets try it.
    So far about thirty cats/kittens have found homes in the last few weeks thanks to Gail.
    Thanks Gail from Suzanne and Toni, what did we do without you xx

    Yesterday 35 dogs left AHAR to find homes in the Uk thanks to the hard working team AllSorts Dog Rescue. Gail hired a huge transporter that normaly takes greyhounds to the continent so the dogs traveled in serious style. Rememer these are all dead dogs walking. Dogs from different pounds in Ireland that people gave up on. All were on death row, running out of time.
    Two weeks ago we started sending the photos and the info on every dog as i test them here, with cats, kids ect.
    One by one the dogs were booked, home checks done.
    People fighting over them.
    This makes it so easy on the dogs. No waiting in rescue, just breakfast at Gails…. a walk in the woods with her volunteers then on to meet their new home.
    As you can see from the first updates, these dogs have really landed on their paws.
    Their new owners thrilled to meet them at last.
    Long may this help for the Irish pound dogs last but you can help by neutering your pet.
    A litter of pups is not " cool". They are your responsibility. Yet us in rescue pick up your mess day in day out.
    You dont see their little faces in the pounds, we do.
    More updates as we get them.
    To everyone who loves what we do, would ye check out Allsorts Dog Resue to say thanks to Gail, Tracy and her team.
    They endlessly help these Irish pound dogs.
    Gail and Tracy, we wish ye so much luck and love ….xx

    As we know, christmas is comming. Many parents will buy a puppy for their kids. No matter how hard we beg them not to.
    But we can share this post, in the hope to educate them and try and prevent a puppy ending up in the pound after christmas due to human error.
    Dog Bite Prevention Tips for Parents, Kids and Dog Owners

    The 3 Most Important Things to Teach Your Kids

    Dogs Don’t Like Hugs and Kisses – Teach your kids not to hug or kiss a dog on the face. Hugging the family dog or face-to-face contact are common causes of bites to the face. Instead, teach kids to scratch the dog on the chest or the side of the neck.

    Be a Tree if a Strange Dog Approaches
    – Teach kids to stand still, like a tree. Trees are boring and the dog will eventually go away. This works for strange dogs and anytime the family dog gets too frisky or becomes aggressive.

    Never Tease a Dog – and never disturb a dog that’s sleeping, eating or protecting something.

    The 2 Most Important Things Parents Can Do

    Supervise – Don’t assume your dog is good with kids. If a toddler must interact with your dog, you should have your hands on the dog too. Even if your dog is great with kids and has never bitten – why take a chance?

    Train the dog – Take your dog to obedience classes where positive-reinforcement is used. Never pin, shake, choke, hold the dog down or roll the dog over to teach it a lesson. Dogs treated this way are likely to turn their aggression on weaker family members. Involve older children in training the family dog while supervising. Don’t allow children to punish the dog. Condition the dog to enjoy the presence and actions of children using positive experiences.

    The 3 Most Important Things Dog Owners Can Do

    Spay or Neuter Your Dog – Neutered pets can be calmer, healthier and less likely to be aggressive in some situations. Neutering prevents unwanted dogs that may end up in shelters or in less than ideal conditions where they may grow up to be poorly socialized or aggressive.

    Condition Your Dog for the World – Give your puppy lots of new positive experiences. Train using positive methods e.g., clicker training.

    Supervise Your Dog – Supervise your dog at all times around children. Do not allow children to hug and kiss any dog. If visiting children are bothering your dog, put the dog away or send the children home.

    Today 35 dogs left for the uk, including 4 greyhounds. Two of them were waiting months for help and two were new. Thanks to Gail, Trolly and the new rescues they got to help. So theres loads of space tonight and im sitting here wondering what will be waiting in Kerry pound on friday and Cavan next week. I love meeting them all for the first time. They are all so different with their own personalities. But i want to get them now… i hate waiting…:0(

    Meet Charlie (on the right) hes boxer/collie.
    Laura from Cavan spca saved him from a very bleak future.
    He was left for nearly three years in a filthy back yard to sleep in a turf shed with no bed or blanket to keep him warm. For months she begged the owner to let her home him. They wouldnt. Then when she went to the pound, there he was on death row. Waiting, afraid and so so thin. His bones stick out all over. She was told he attacked people and dogs in another place.
    Well hes only here since last wednesday. Already he has put on weight. Hes food possessive (but would you blame him) but not a bad bone in his body.
    Today he showed off his new coat (thanks to Claire and Sarah who donated loads of stunning coats that were too small for their greyhounds)
    His future starts now. Every day hes getting stronger and starting to play with the other dogs.
    Hes so loving and such a beautiful dog. Shame on the people who caused this.
    Thanks Laura, i'll do you proud i know you love him. Hes safe now xx

    I think ye will need a tissue.
    Some weeks back, i saved five pups from the Kerry pound. They were skin and bone, covered in lice and barely able to walk they were so weak.
    Over the first week, the first boy died. He was the runt and was too far gone. Next the beautiful black and white girl, and then the lovely brown boy. Heart breaking, all the meds.. hand feeding and 24hr care couldnt save them.
    But these two boys…Toby and Tommy beat the odds.
    Toby even came with me to Sharons gig in Tramore (so i could hand feed him every two hours) where Irene the owner of the hotel fell in love and booked him for a home when hes stronger.
    It took a miracle to keep these two alive.
    Today Tommy left for his new home in the UK.
    I got up this morn and as usual fed them together, gave them their favourite… honey tea.
    I watched them playing and it broke my heart knowing it would be the last time.
    So i took one last photo, together.
    They will both have the best homes anyone can offer…but worlds apart.
    Boy did i cry saying goodbye and good luck to Tommy, my beautful pup who was part of my life for so long.
    Thanks to Anita (ark vets), Gail and Irene.
    For being part of their past, present and giving them their bright future….xx
