Greenbrier Humane Society running out of room for animals

Posted:

If you're looking for a new pet, there's no better time. The Greenbrier Humane Society is so full, they will soon need to start euthanizing to make space.

The shelter has had an unheard-of five-month stretch of no euthanizations to make room for new intakes -- and they hope they can keep that stretch going.

They are at beyond capacity for cats and kittens -- and very close to capacity for dogs.

The shelter cannot turn away any animals, so they are begging people to adopt.

"It's the ugly side of a shelter because when you have no room, they have nowhere to go. So you don't have a choice. It's an extremely hard thing and really hurts us and breaks our hearts that we have to do that."

The humane society is also in dire need of cat and dog food.

If you are interested in getting a new pet, the shelter is running a half off special all week long.
