GALAX, Va. (WFXR) — The Galax Carroll Grayson Animal Shelter issued an alert to animal lovers across the New River Valley on Monday, urging them to find room their hearts — and their homes — for a new pet because the shelter has reached “100% capacity.”
According to the shelter, many of the available dogs have been at the shelter for a month or longer.
In order to make room for incoming animals, the Galax facility will offer $5 adoptions on all dogs over the age of six months. However, this discount will only be available from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21.
Here are pictures of some of the dogs available for adoption as of Monday, June 20:
“If you have been considering adopting one of these dogs, now is the time!!” the Galax Carroll Grayson Animal Shelter wrote on Facebook on Monday. “Adopting a shelter pet is life saving for not only the one you bring home, but for one that may be lost or abandoned. Every adopted dog and cat makes space for the next animal in need.”
