      Who will save the Pound Dog?

The Pound Dog is on DEATH ROW in one of the council pounds.
He was thoughtlessly given as a Christmas present to a child who didn't want him.

When can a cat be taken to the pound

Under the Companion Animals Act 1998 a cat may ONLY be seized in the following circumstances:

·         If a cat is in a public place prohibited under the Act (eg food preparation/consumption area or wildlife protection area) (section 30).

·         If seizing the cat is reasonable and necessary for the protection of any person or animal (section 32).

Before delivering the cat to the pound, you must make every effort to locate the owner ? by asking neighbours and other local residents if they know who that might be.
