    Shared with all my followers on twitter. Hope they all get homes!

    Update: My twitter feed has gone crazy I think my link to the fb photo with the details has gotten over 30 RT's and it is still being rt'ed! Hopefully there will be someone who can take them!

    Urgent update !
    Sincere apologies to everyone who has tried to reach us re these pups . The phones haven`t stopped ringing , there are lots of messages and texts - we simply cannot answer them all , very frustrating .
    All 15 pups are still
    in the pound . The pound does not usually open on Sundays but some of our volunteers are going to open it tomorrow 10am to 2pm to hopefully rehome all these pups . We cannot take names / tel no`s to reserve any of them incase people don`t turn up and the pups are still left in the pound on Monday . These pups will hopefully be rehomed to the first 15 people who arrive at the pound tomorrow from 10am . Sorry - but we have no other way to ensure they are saved in time . The council insist on a rehoming fee of €60 which includes a years dog license and microchipping . They will not waiver this fee in any circumstance even if it means that the pups are "put to sleep" .
    The council does not accept offers of foster placements , each pup is only available as a "direct pound rehome"
    In answer to another query , the pups are all black , some with a little white on them - although they appear to be brown in the photo due to the artificial light in which they were photographed .
    The address for Monaghan dog pound is Lisdoonan , Carrickmacross , Co Monaghan . The volunteers will be answering both land line and mobile phone numbers from 8am tomorrow morning for information / directions . Please note that the telephone numbers are for Southern Ireland if you are calling from the North so you will need to use the appropriate dialling code in prefix.
