ROWAN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — An animal shelter in Rowan County is well over capacity this week after taking in cats and dogs from a hoarding case.
The Tri-County Animal Shelter has had to stop accepting owner surrenders, and officials are begging for people to adopt the animals they have now. Currently, the shelter ahs about 70 dogs. The facility is only equipped to house 50 canines. It also has about 50 cats as well.
That increase in numbers has led to a demand for supplies.
"Dog food, cat food, all of that. That would be very helpful. Any bleach, cleaning supplies, paper towels, blankets, anything like that we could use," Jessica Conn with the shelter told LEX 18.
Since the pets from the hoarding case can’t go anywhere until the court proceedings ends, the main thing these animals need is more room.
