Dog Rescue need 'forever homes'

Local animal rescue charity, Dundalk Dog Rescue (DDR) have made an appeal for more dog walking volunteers, foster carers and adopters.

The Louth charity say they are facing a growing number of dogs in their care, with 68 dogs listed in the last week.

The numbers visiting the kennels is growing all the time and Dundalk Dog Rescue has now taken to social media appealing for dog walkers or those interested in fostering or adopting a dog in their care to contact them at rehoming@dundalkdogrescue.ie

'With 27 dogs being housed in our kennels this week we would like to extend our thanks to the amazing dog walking volunteers who rocked up Saturday morning to brighten up the week for our kenneled doggies,' said a spokesperson for the charity.

Although Dundalk Dog Rescue have a number of foster carers in place, they say the numbers of animals being surrendered is placing ongoing pressure on the service.

'There are currently 68 dogs on our books this week and we have been inundated with requests for help with private surrenders. It just never ends.'

'As always our ever reliable foster homes have stepped up to the mark to offer safe refuge to our most vulnerable pooches.'
