The DSPCA says demand for it's services is approaching crisis levels.

It's experiencing a surge in unwanted, unclaimed and surrendered animals.

There are 848 applications on a waiting list of those who want to surrender their pets.

The organisation wants pet owners to re-consider, if they are thinking of giving up their animals.

Near Crisis Level

The DSPCA's Gilian Bird says the situation is stark:

"Basically, as the Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, what we do is we look after the lost, sick, injured and cruelly treated animals that come into the shelter."

"So that, in addition to all of the applications we have of people looking for us to take in their pets they want to surrender... we're getting to a stage now where we're fairly near crisis level."
