THE Bundaberg Pound is well-and-truly on its way to being full.

This morning, at least 18 dogs, 16 kittens and seven cats were being held at the shelter located at DeCourcy Dr, next to the Qunaba Transfer Station.

A council spokesman said the pound was currently two-thirds full, but that more animals had been impounded on the premises less than a week ago.

These included two goat, an additional dog and a number of cats and kittens.

If the pound reaches its intake limit, it will be unable to shelter any more animals from off the street.

People are being asked to help relieve the pressure on the pound by contacting the council if their pets are missing.

Lost pet owners can also go to the pound in person.
