The two stray dogs will be caged 8 hours a day, for a month and then will be returned to the dog “Death Row”.
The Alliance For Animal Rights have issued an appeal for emails to those involved in the project. Bernie Wright, AFAR spokesperson, declared:
â€œWe ask you to help us not have this type of exhibition, one that involves the display of two unfortunate animals who were incarcerated in Louth dog Pound.
One if not two of these dogs had offers of permanent homes by people visiting the dog pound but they were refused as these dogs were â€˜heldâ€™ to be used in this stunt. This invariably means that they will be dumped back in the pound at the end of their display period in the cages.
total, then back to the dog poundâ€.
 Please, send an email to the following people who allowed this exhibition (click on more to see the sample letter).
Seamus Nolan will hold an exhibition at the Drogheda Arts Centre from Wednesday 25th Feb to Friday 20th of March. The subjects of this exhibition will be two dogs taken from the dog pound and caged for the entire duration of the event.
The aim of his exhibition is to â€œexplore how we manage and relate to our immediate environment and at the structures which dictate this relationshipâ€.
Nolan will use the dogs as â€œobjectsâ€ that the system no longer considers of value.
For this purpose, two dogs were taken from the dog â€œdeath rowâ€, fostered by the Drogheda Arts Centre and labeled â€œpublic propertyâ€.
Bernie Wright, AFAR Spokesperson, declared â€œTo us in AFAR this is totally unacceptable, Seamus Nolan refers to the dogs as the waste of man, or public property, this is outrageous. They are unfortunate sentient beings with a right to life and they do not deserve to be treated as objects especially as it could mean they risk death if put back in the dog pound.â€
In a system built on speciesism and rights violations, it is unfortunately true that dogs, like all nonhumans are regarded by the law and other institutions as pieces of property, to be bought, used and discarded. In a way, this exhibition questions the property status of nonhumans in our society, by allowing the dogs to be caged and displayed like objects to an apathetic public. But it does so by violating the rights of these two dogs, and therefore should certainly not be tolerated.

On Wednesday 28th of Jan09, Pope Benedict XVI attended a show performed by the Medrano Circus at the Vatican.
A lion cub was presented to the Pope by a performer from the circusâ€¦a scene that the audience must have found amusing as they laughed at the lion roaring in answer to the popeâ€™s pat.
Instead, the audience should question what is so amusing about animal exploitation. Approved by the Vatican, this Circus profits from the exploitation of nonhuman animals, and violates their rights, the right to freedom, and the right not to
be considered property.
Performing silly acts that are not part of their natural behaviour is not only tragic but should also be highly condemned by any religion preaching nonviolence.
Despite some technical problems with the equipment, Earthlings screening on the 18th of febâ€™09 was quite a success!
Last week the Alliance For Animal Rights (AFAR) saved 19 dogs from certain death in the Kilkenny County Council (KCC) dog pound.
The news broke last week that 27 dogs were taken from the St. Catherineâ€™s Halting Site where it is reported that over 100 dogs are kept by the traveling community. Some horses were also taken and are being cared for.
The KCC took the dogs following complaints from the public and for the safety of the people on the site and in the immediate area and animal overcrowding.
The KCC were reported to be about to kill the dogs but members of the public phoned and emailed offering places
to look after the dogs. AFAR was about to hold a demonstration when the decision was reversed.
One of the dogs died and 7 of the dogs were later returned. But for the other 19 dogs a new home has been found.
Undercover video and photographic footage from an anonymous source taken from inside all of the known fur factory farms in Ireland was released by ALiberation.

From Association of Hunt Saboteurs | 20th Feb 2009.
30 activists from the Association of Hunt Saboteurs held a demonstration against stag hunting at the Coolquay lodge last night.
The WARD UNION JUNIOR HUNT BALL was on, a soda bar for those children who are already integrated into the cruel world of hunting. Carted Stag hunting is cruel and unnecessary and many of the underage revellers boasted of being out on hunts their entire short lives.
Many appeared to already have drink on them as they stumbled
into the Coolquay Lodge on the N2.
Local teenagers and children from Finglas were horrified that Stag hunting still took place so near Finglas where they lived and came to support our demo. Many had their own home made signs. We say why would you want your child to be an animal abuser. See www.banbloodsports.com for graphic footage of bloody staghunting.
