Stray dogs admitted to the pound are kept for a minimum of 5 days. After that period has expired, Monaghan County Council will endeavour to rehome dogs through the MSPCA Dog Shelter, Emyvale or Carrick Dog Shelter (CDS), Lisdoonan. However, if the MSPCA or CDS do not have space or if dogs are not suitable for rehoming, then these dogs will be put to sleep.
