Six puppies found hidden in van at Dublin Port

The six puppies were concealed among furniture in a van and did not have any of the necessary paperwork or vaccinations.

On Sunday night, six puppies were seized by the DSPCA with the assistance of Revenue Customs Service in Dublin Port.

The six cocker spaniel puppies were concealed among furniture in a van and did not have any of the necessary paperwork or vaccinations.

The puppies are now in good health but at just seven weeks of age should still be with their mother or mothers, according to the DSPCA.

The dogs are in the care of the DSPCA but are part of an ongoing investigation and will not be available for rehoming at this time.

The DSPCA are appealing to the public to help with any information of the location of illegal breeders, particularly any information about these particular puppies and where they may have come from.

Please contact DSPCA Inspectors at inspectors@dspca.ie if you have any information.

The DSPCA is founding members of Operation Delphin and together with HMRC, Revenue Commissioners of Ireland and the major SPCA’s in the UK and Ireland who work together to bring an end to the illegal puppy trade.
