A spokeswoman said: Were really stretched and are asking anyone who can re-home a pet or make a donation to contact us on 0121 643 5211.
One local dog lover who has heeded the call is Nyoka Scarlett, owner of Walkies Pet Services in Solihull.
Nyoka, from Hampton-in-Arden, is offering to take residents donations to the dogs home.
The dog walker has set up a drop off bin outside her home at 12 Meriden Road, Hampton-in-Arden and is even offering to make collections from peoples homes if theyre too enough.
She has also organised drop off donation points at Spa, Hampton Lane, Catherine-de-Barnes, Hampton Village Store, or Hampton Post Office.
Its a great way to feel good about yourself and spread some Christmas cheer, she said.
