Animal Control over capacity, pets in need of adoption

(WTVM) -

It's raining cats and dogs at the Columbus Animal Care & Control Center… and right now that's not a good thing. 

The center is overwhelmed with pets and need your help to find them forever homes.

News Leader 9's Brittany Dionne visited the center to take a look at some of the fury friends that could become part of your family.

Center Director Drale Short says around this time of year they get an influx of animals.

The center can hold a maximum of 80 pets at a time, but they are well past that number according to Short.

Unfortunately, an increase in abandoned pets means an increase in euthanasia rates.

Last November, we partnered with the center and introduced a new semiweekly segment called Pets of Day, which highlights eight animals per week which are in desperate need of adoption.  

For more information on how you can help these deserving pets find a home, visit Columbus Animal Care and Control at 4910 Milgen Road or call them at (706) 653-4512.
