BROOKLYN - A Park Slope animal rescue organization responsible for finding homes for dogs and cats in the borough may be closing due to a lack of funding.

Workers at the Brooklyn Animal Foster Network, a nonprofit organization since 2005, say they have stopped taking in pets because they have run out of money. The group relies only on donations.

The organization's director says the number of animals coming in is outweighing funding. He says donations are needed by June 15 or the organization will have to close its doors.

Currently, the animal rescue has eight dogs that need homes.
