DOTHAN, AL---It's summer time and some local animals could use your help.

The shelter needs both cat and dog food, water bottles and plenty of foster homes.

"We're busting at the seams right now, last month we took in over
600 hundred animals, this month we've already taken in over 300," said Shelter Administrator Sgt. Adrianne Woodruff.

The shelter is transporting more than 100 puppies to other shelters tomorrow (Saturday).

If you're interested in adopting a pet or being a foster parent you can give the shelter a call.

    Why do you think people take their animals to the shelter, They DON'T WANT THEM thats why. Yall ever heard of putting unwanted animals down ? There's not enough people that wants 6 or 9 dogs and cats. Dogs and cats have No predators that eats them on a regular basis. You can't save all these animals. Sure when they're babies they are sooo cute but they grow up and there's thousands of them. Just about everybody that wants a animal has one or two sometimes more. Animals have to be fed and thats another thing to think about. Food is pricey, and theres not a lot of people got money to buy animal food with.You're just going to have to start giving them the death shot, because sometimes you have to do what you have to do.

      Maybe the shelter should start "putting down" irresponsible pet owners, or uneducated people who think pets are disposable, quite similar, perhaps, to the above author. If you can't take care of a pet, don't get one to begin with, then tax payers wouldn't have to pick up the tab for the care and disposal. The shelter kills thousands each year because some moron with a 3rd grade education thinks pets are not important, or fail to spay and neuter. Quite frankly, I would like to see those owners spayed or neutered to prevent the over-population of stupidity.
