Puppy Adoption Day January 9 2016

Up to 40 pups looking for new homes at MADRA Puppy Adoption Day

A Puppy Adoption Day will take place at St Joseph's Community Centre in Shantalla on Saturday, January 9, from 12 - 3.30 pm.

We have been inundated with pups over the past number of months and currently have 40 pups in our care, either at the kennels or with foster families.

The pups - who range in age from 5 weeks to 16 weeks old - are a variety of breeds, including mixes of terriers, labradors and collies.

All potential adopters will be asked to complete an adoption questionnaire and all adoptions are subject to the successful completion of a home check. The majority of home checks will be conducted the week after the event or on the day of the event. Advice will also be available from the MADRA team on the type of dog that will best suit a potential adopter's lifestyle.

The pups will be microchipped, wormed and vaccinated and an adoption donation of €150 is suggested. Potential adopters must also commit to neutering their pup when they have reached an appropriate age.

Directions: St Joseph's Community Centre is on Ashe Road in Shantalla, Galway - view this location on a map.
