The drought dogs on death row

THE owners of these dogs had to give them up because of the drought. Now, if they don't find new homes by Monday, they're set to be euthanised.

In a heartbreaking Facebook post, Lucky Paws Dog Rescue is urgently trying to find people willing to take on a new addition or two.

"We have been contacted by a rural pound in desperate need of help, due to the drought, farmers and families have been unable to care for their animals so now the pounds are overflowing with dogs!," the Facebook post reads.

"The pound has no free space if anymore dogs come in so they will need to get rid of the dogs that have already done their impound or were surrendered by their families.

"All of these dogs are only a year old or younger, they have their whole lives ahead of them and we hope to save them but can't without carers.

"PLEASE if you have ever thought about fostering, now is the perfect time, we have 7 lives hanging in the balance."
