The Green Paws Animal Sanctuary in Moss Vale is dealing with an increase in the number of pets being surrendered.

During the ' Puppy Pandemic ' pet ownership skyrocketed.

But now, Green Paws is getting three or four requests for surrender each day.

Co Founder Bella Sheil said there are a number of reasons for this.

"Having a baby and not having time for the dog is one we see quite often,

"Or a lot of the time people jump into adopting, without considering the breed, and they end up with a dog that's not suited to their situation,"Ms. Sheil said.
