BLUEFIELD, Va. (WVVA) - For the first time in 5 years, the Tazewell County Animal Shelter has reached a ‘Code Red’ status.

The shelter said the designation means their animals are facing euthanization in order to create space if they are not adopted.

Director Ginny Dawson said, there is a surplus of larger dogs.

The adoption fee for dogs at the Animal Shelter is $65. The fee includes a spay or neuter voucher.
