A Dog Is For Life, Not Just For Christmas

Date: 12-12-2023

A cared for dog is a happy dog.  Give your dog time, training, daily exercise and regular veterinary care and know where your dog is at all times.

  • A dog bought or sold must have a microchip. The microchip should be registered on an approved database.  The owner will be issued with a Certificate of Registration
  • A dog licence can be purchased from or a local post office

If you are considering getting a dog for Christmas, consider adopting from a rescue. There are many wonderful dogs looking for new homes.
