Revenue seize 4 puppies and a young dog in Dublin Port

Today (08/11/19), Revenue officers discovered 4 puppies (approx. 12 weeks old) and a young dog, when 2 Irish men who were travelling separately to the UK were stopped and questioned.

The men did not have pet passports for the dogs as required under the Animal Health and Welfare Act 2013.

All the dogs were transferred into the care of the DSPCA who are conducting a follow-up investigation. Revenue works closely with the DSPCA and other bodies to combat illegal puppy trading.

If you have any information about smuggling please contact Revenue's Confidential Freephone number 1800 295 295.
