The charity says they're seeing more and more incidents of animal abuse.
Dogs Trust is re-issuing its appeal for foster families following a harrowing case of animal abuse in the midlands.
The animal charity, along with Offaly County Council's Dog Warden, attended an incident where a six year old terrier was tied to the back of a car and dragged along the road.
Doodles has since been nursed back to help, with his foster family deciding to take him in permanently.
Regional Rehoming Manager with Dogs Trust, Eimear Cassidy says incidents like this are becoming more frequent, and is urging more people to join their network of foster families:
