Dublin Husky Rescue has been forced to stop accepting huskies in need due to a lack of funding.

In a statement, the rescue wrote that they were being forced to "take drastic action and stop taking on huskies".

"Due to a lack of funds from people not paying their adoption fees we are struggling to keep afloat".

"Vaccinations, microchip, worm and flea, neutering and spaying, leads, collars and most times food.. We look for €100 for a male and €130 for a female which doesn't even come close to the initial costs and we get ignored".

Owners Andy and Karen said that the rising costs are "driving (us) to breaking point".

"We work day and night trying to run this rescue and give our own families a bit if time.. It's not all about money for us... but we do have vet bills at the end of the day".

Fans are clamouring on the page to help save the organisation and a donation page has been set up.

Maria Ball wrote that the centre does "amazing work" and added "don't give up yet, please."

"Let's all put our heads together and try to help".
