Photos: 13 dogs found standing in inches of their own dirt in Cork

All the dogs were extremely underweight and there was no clean water available to them.

THIRTEEN DOGS WHICH were living in filthy conditions locked in sheds and trailers in North-West Cork have been rescued by the ISPCA.

The dogs, nine greyhounds and four German shepherds, were found standing in inches of their own faeces and dirt.

ISPCA Inspector Lisa O’Donovan made the discovery. Three deceased dogs were also found on the property.

All the dogs were extremely underweight and there was no clean water available to them.

O’Donovan said, “The conditions these dogs were living in were horrendous. The smell was shocking, and the dogs were completely un-socialised. It was a long difficult task removing them safely.

It’s difficult to try and get your head around how someone could force the poor dogs to live like this.

The dogs were transported to the ISPCA Equine Rescue Centre in Mallow, Cork to receive treatment by a vet.

The four German Shepherds were later transferred to the ISPCA National Animal Centre for rehoming.

Two of the greyhounds have already been rehomed, and the further seven still need homes.

If you are interested in rehoming any of these dogs, please email mallow@ispca.ie or call 022 43218.
