A local non-profit organization is stepping in to help save the lives of animals.
'No Kill Columbus' hosted a candelight vigil tonight near the Columbus Animal Control Center off Milgen Road. This year more than 6,000 animals have been euthanized there.
Over 74% of them were put down over the last year. Members of 'No Kill Columbus' say residents should be aware of what's happening to pets that are abandoned.
The candelight vigil lasted two hours with a walk from Milgen Road to the Animal Control Center.
Members of "No Kill Columbus" are urging the public to adopt a new pet from that facility and help save lives.
