REMINDER FROM MAGIC!

Used MagicFrom the end of this month it is a legal requirement to have all dogs microchipped and their details registered on one of the four Government approved databases.
Local authorities, the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine and the Gardaí will be responsible for enforcing the law.
Owners of dogs found without a microchip could face a fine of up to €5,000.

Image (46)A sincere thank you to all our Volunteer Visiting Teams for their presence at our attractive Exhibition Stand at the Irish Kennel Club Dog Expo today. Our dogs and their owners gave a warm welcome, with plenty of ‘wagging tails’, to all who visited our Stand and this was reflected by the interest shown in the work of Irish Therapy Dogs. A demonstration was given where Volunteers simulated visits to Care Centres and showed the therapeutic effect that Therapy Dogs have on residents. We hope that, in the future, we will welcome back some of the visitors to our Stand as Volunteer Visiting Teams.
