Today at German Shepherds RRR we recieved wonderful news concerning one our dogs, Shadow. Shadow came to us in the spring of 2016 after he had been seized by the council as part of a cruelty case and today we have been informed that a conviction of a lifetime ban and a large fine has been enforced upon his previous owner by the courts.As we are all aware, this is big news in Northern Ireland and a great step forward for animal welfare within this country. Justice has been done for Shadow and we hope it is the start of a trend in how future cases will be dealt with.
At this time, we would like to thank all of our supporters, both within the general public and the councils, in this case, specifically Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council. We are a small rescue that recieves no funding and it humbles us greatly to be asked and entrusted with the welfare and lives of dogs like Shadow. We would not be able to do what we do without the support that we recieve on a daily basis and because of this generosity and courtesy, dogs like Shadow are given a great second chance at life.
We would also like to extend a great thanks to Sam and Jamie for giving Shadow a home and we are happy to say it is a home in which he is thriving. His world is now so different from the world that he came from and is filled with love, happiness and a big sister called Storm.
Thank you to everyone that was involved in making this happen for Shadow and again, thank you to everyone who makes it possible for us to do what we do.
