Paws for a minute and think about all the cute puppies desperate for a new home.
That has been the message from Paws Hoofs and Claws owner Sue Carson, under the pump with too many homeless pets flooding her non-profit business.
"We have over 60 pets in care here and we can't take anymore," Ms Carson said.
"As hard as it is we have actually begun saying no to people who want to drop off animals."
Ms Carson said she needed reliable carers she could count on.
"We are desperate for more foster carers who actually mean it. So many people will comment on Facebook saying they will foster but out of them it's probably only one in ten that follow through," she said.
"It's hard because people see all the comments and think we are fine but we are really not, we are crying out for genuine help."
Ms Carson said some of the stories are a hard pill to swallow.
"A litter of pups were found in the middle of the oval at Townview School last week," she said.
"They didn't get there on their own, the obvious conclusion is that they had been dumped in the hope that someone would find them."
Luckily for them, foster carer Trista Simpson saved the litter.
"I love looking after these pups, it gives me a great feeling of fulfillment," Ms Simpson said.
