Stray dogs being turned away in Essex

Hillside Kennels in Waltham Abbey has been telling Heart they're having to turn away abandoned dogs because they can't afford to look after them.

The rehoming centre's warning they probably won't be able to accommodate stray dogs after Christmas unless they can raise more money.

They need donations to keep the service running but the recession has meant less people putting their hand in their pocket.

The centre has already had to cut the number they take in from around 45 to 15 because of the cost involved.
