Public urged not to adopt pets over the busy Christmas period

The Animal Welfare centre in Drumkeeran in Co.Leitrim is calling on the public not to adopt pets over the Christmas period.

Christmas is difficult and busy time of year for new pets such as Dogs or Cats to get adjusted to family life within a new home.

That’s according to Cillian Costigan who is the Dog Warden with the Leitrim Animal Welfare centre.

Speaking to Ocean FM News, Cillian has this advice for people with pet, but particularly dogs over this Christmas period
