Radio interview: ISPCA comments about Irish dogs being exported to UK

Should dogs be exported to the UK to be rehomed? Or is it "better for them" to be simply euthanased? Listen to the background to this saga by clicking on the play button below

As a person who is closely in touch with the dog rescue situation in the UK, I would like to point out that we are being inundated with all types of dogs being sent over from Ireland. It is not true that re-homing is easy here and the rescues are really struggling to cope. I found this point of view ill-informed about the situation here in the UK. Please get some laws made that control breeding, get people to micro chip and stop flooding us with so many unwanted dogs. The greyhound situation is also absolutely unsustainable, with regard to finding rescue spaces and re-homing is harder with the current fiancial situation.
Ireland needs to get its house in order, please.

I agree with the first commenter. No place can ever justified as the best place for rehoming. Any place will be filled up in any case. The solution is controlled breeding and penalty for those who wouldn't want to obey.
