Shelter in Ireland Is Overwhelmed by Dogs Abandoned After Christmas

This story comes from County Cork in Ireland, but you could probably write it in hundreds of cities around the world. The Cork Dog Action Welfare Group (otherwise known as Cork DAWG) told Irish website The Journal last week that it is already being flooded with unwanted dogs that were bought as holiday gifts. People are either abandoning the dogs on the street or dropping them off at the shelter, and the dogs are coming in such numbers that the small volunteer group is overwhelmed. DAWG toldΒ The Journal that “We always try to help, but at the end of the day we are a small rescue with a very full shelter and little or no spaces. The post-Christmas dumping has started, and we are overwhelmed with calls for help.”
