Advice for Dog Owners During Severe Weather Conditions

Posted in Connect on March 12, 2019.


Over the past few days the Dog Wardens Service has been contacted by many dog owners whose dogs have gone missing due to the severe weather conditions.

As high winds and heavy rain are forecast for the next 48 hours, during this time please.

  • Make sure all dogs are kept on lead when going outside especially at night when being let out before bed.
  • Make sure your dog is always wearing a collar bearing a tag with a contact number.
  • Make sure your dog is microchipped and owners’ details are up to date.
  • Make sure all dogs are secured – indoors, in sheds or Kennel runs, do not leave them unattended while outside.

If your dog goes missing or you find a dog please contact:

  • The Dog Warden Service on 094 9024444 or vetinfo@mayococo.ie
  • Report it to your local Gardaí.
  • Post on Social Media with a picture and area the dog went missing.
  • Contact your local Radio Station.

Prevention is better than losing your precious family pet.

L. Mulligan,

Dog Warden.
