A New Zealand animal shelter is begging dog lovers to take care of adorable puppies that have been abandoned by their owners.

The Saving Hope Foundation in Silverdale, 18 miles north of Auckland on the country’s North Island, is in dire need of temporary homes for Staffordshire terrier puppies after their pregnant mother wandered the streets.

Volunteer Bronte Anderson shared a passionate plea on Facebook, saying the shelter is full of more dogs expected to arrive over the weekend.

Ms. Anderson told Daily Mail Australia that the shelter is also desperate for donations to fund the care of the animals.

She said most of the funding currently comes straight from the pockets of the charity’s founder, Janine Hinton.

Ms. Hinton told Daily Mail Australia that she has ‘about 200 dogs’ in her care at a time.

“It’s just crazy,” she said.

‘We need more foster homes and funds. We had a mother with five puppies yesterday and we spent all day trying to save the life of one of the puppies who sadly passed away last night. ‘

Ms. Hinton said she has seen dogs arrive at the shelter with broken legs, severe malnutrition, and injuries consistent with blunt force trauma.

“It’s just heartbreaking,” she said. “I’m so tired of it.”

Those who want to lend a hand can apply by completing a shape on the shelter’s website.

Dozens have already pledged their support online, and one woman says she’d like to take two.

“I’d take them all if I could,” said another.
