A number of family pets have been "evicted" from their homes as residents were told that pets no longer are allowed in their rented homes.

Residents of The Sanctuary apartment building in Jacobs Island in Cork were told that they have until November 30 to remove all pets from the building.

"Having pets will now be in breach of the House Rules and you will be asked to remove pets from the apartment if they are found to be on site, for any duration," the notice reads.

Speaking on Cork's RedFM, Martin, who is a resident, says trying to relocate his dog within two months is practically impossible.

"How hard it is to get a new house or apartment, and with permission for a dog? It's just crazy.

"Dogs with loving families and homes, being thrown out? This isn't just a dog it's a part of the family."

Meanwhile in Dublin, The Phibsboro Cat Rescue group are looking to re-home two cats who were also evicted from their home.
