Too many pets: Overcrowded Bay Area animal shelters beg for adoptions

animal shelters

TAMPA, Fla.( FOX 13)- If you're looking to adopt a pet, this weekend would be a good time to make love. Both the Hillsborough County's Pet Resource Center and the Humane Society of Tampa Bay say they are over faculty. 

County officials say, as of Friday morning, the Pet Resource Center had 255 bird-dogs, which is 104 percent of the shelter's official faculty. Their dog population at PRC has remained "stubbornly" near or exactly above faculty for various weeks, spokesman Todd Pratt said. 

Shelter managers are inviting Hillsborough County occupants to help ease the crowding by adopting a pet. The Pet Resource Center, at 440 N. Falkenburg, is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p. m. Tuesday through Sunday. Adoptable domesticated at the shelter are viewable online.

Meanwhile, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay is making the same plea. They say they are at maximum the abilities and have started putting two bird-dogs in each kennel, that is typically room merely one animal each.

" We have no room left, no kennels open for bird-dogs right now. So we're having to find friends and set them together in kennels to find room," explained Danyelle Ho, HSTB's director of awning operations.

The Humane Society is racing two specials to cure get pets chosen. Any pup over 50 pounds will be $50 with a view to its adoption, while "cat-o-nine-tails" over 4 months old are $15.

HSTB's adoptable pets are also viewable online.
