The dogs recovered included numerous Spaniels, Cockers, Springers, Cavaliers and King Charles, Bichon Frise, and Pugs.
There has been a number of high-profile thefts within the district recently including up to 20 dogs in a theft in Carlow. A further 10 pups were stolen from a property in Freshford.
A local Garda spokesperson said: “We recovered a number of dogs this week as part of an ongoing investigation. We are now trying to establish owners and/or origins for the dogs.”

It is requested that people make contact by email only to the gardai on Carlow.Community@garda.ie.
