FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – The Franklin County Humane Society has announced that they have taken in animals from other shelters, which has helped to fill the shelter to capacity and resulted in a plea for help.
The shelter says they have seen a steady flow of pet owners coming into the shelter to surrender their pets. According to the shelter, there has also been people who have brought in stray animals, as well — so much so, that at times, there have been lines of people waiting.
Then, on Tuesday, June 8, the Franklin County Humane Society says a number of dogs were taken in from a neighboring county because their shelter was full and would have to put dogs to sleep.
With adoptions and transfers having come to a “complete stop,” the shelter is urging people to visit the shelter to find a forever home for one of the numerous animals they have.
