CLANTON, Ala. (AP) -- Leaders of a central Alabama animal shelter say winter weather has led to a large uptick in the number of stray animals being dropped off.

Chilton County Humane Society director Jessica Terry tells WBMA-TV (http://bit.ly/1heegh0 ) stray animals have been dropped off at the shelter almost daily after winter storms in the region.

To try easing the overcrowding at the facility, the shelter is partnering with Pilots and Paws, a group that flies animals to shelters in states where overcrowding is less severe.

The shelter is also looking for volunteer foster families who will keep a dog or cat temporarily before it can be placed in another shelter or adopted.
