Animals at a shelter are at risk of being killed (put down), because the animal shelter is at 'full capacity'. According to reports.
The shelter is called Cobb County Animal Control. The name suggests that this is not a new thing for the shelter. That it has
probably happened before. Though, that cannot be confirmed.
Summer is well known for being kitten season. Where shelters are full. This is one of the reasons that the shelter cites why
there is so many cats at their center.
This is what a spokesperson had to say on the matter:
"It's right after spring, and that's mating season for cats and dogs so we have a lot of puppies and kittens turned in and we just get overblown. Especially with cats," said Shana Luke. "Dogs stay pretty busy all year long, we're pretty full, but cats, during the spring and summer, we just get litters and litters and litters."
Therefore, the problem seems to be irresponsible pet ownership. Where people do not get their pet(s) spayed or neutered. In return that means that many pets are unwanted. And so dumped at shelters.
The shelter is pleading with the public to adopt an animal. They are asking people to drop by the center and adopt a pet.
If you do adopt a pet, please make sure that you can dedicate your full time to it. A pet isn't for a season, but for life!
If you want to adopt one of these pets. Or, can help this shelter. Then please go here:
