THE DUBLIN SOCIETY for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has issued an alert warning that its shelter is completely full up.

The organisation says it cannot take in any new healthy animals because “our shelter is completely full up of dogs, cats and bunnies”. However, it will still accommodate sick or injured animals.

The DSPCA has previously noted a rise in the number of abandoned pets since the start of the financial crisis.

The organisation is appealing for anyone interested in rehoming an animal to contact them online or on 01 4994700.
