Desperation has dawned on Paws, Hoofs and Claws as their population of saved animals exceeds limits.
Currently housing more then 60 animals, PHC are desperately seeking foster carers to assist with their growing number of rescue animals.
PHC president Sue Carson said finding suitable foster carers was a constant challenge.
"Some people do it only once and find it too difficult to give the animal up, sometimes they adopt, meanwhile others find it too challenging to handle," Ms Carson said.
"I find those who do continue to foster, find it very rewarding and love the fact that they are contributing to saving lives and making a difference."
Ms Carson said most animals that end up in PHC care are pets who have been surrendered by their owners, between the age of six months to one year.
"At this age the dog has started crewing and digging. Owners realise the dog is no longer a cute puppy and they don't have time for it because its needs are greater," she said.
"For us the animal then becomes harder to re-home because it isn't a pup and requires training, to be suitable for adoption.
"This takes up time and stops other dogs from coming into our care, creating a difficult cycle."
Ms Carson said she felt like locals saw PHC as the easy option to offload their pets.
"We are getting more and more people wanting help," she said.
"We have recently received three new litters of pups and we receive calls daily with locals asking to take in litters of pups.
"At the moment we don't have the foster carers to keep doing it, so they end up in the pound."
Interested foster carers must have a love for animals and an enclosed yard for dogs.
You can become a foster carer by messaging the Paws, Hoofs and Claws Facebook page or calling Sue Carson on 0456 664 255.
