The Montgomery County Animal Resource Center needs the community’s help to find homes for adoptable pets, according to a release.
Due to a large number of calls for stray dogs last weekend, the shelter’s kennels are once again reaching full capacity.
Staff at the ARC are currently working with area rescues and other organizations to find suitable housing for the available pets, the release stated.
The ARC’s goal is to get as many pets out of the shelter and into homes, and the Interim Director Robert Gruhl is hoping the community can help.
“Because of the busy weekend we had, we have a pressing need to get animals out of the Animal Resource Center. Our goal is always to keep their stay in the shelter as short as possible, but because we have a limited number of kennels, the need to free up space is urgent,” Gruhl said.
Dog adoptions only cost $20 and include spay or neuter, micro-chipping, initial vaccinations and first-year license fee.
An adoption event will also be held Saturday, April 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"The more animals we can get into loving homes, the better," Gruhl said. "If you or someone you know is looking for a new pet, now is a great time to visit the Animal Resource Center and give one of these animals a new home and a new family."
