Lee County Humane Society hosts 18th annual 'No More Wasted Lives' campaign

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

Local Lee County celebrities are being "locked up" this week in hopes of raising money for the Lee County Humane Society in Auburn.

The 18th annual "No More Wasted Lives" campaign is one of the shelter's largest campaigns and all proceeds directly benefit the animals housed there.

The Lee County Humane Society is aggressively working to lower their euthanasia rates which means more animals in the shelter for a longer period of time requiring medical care, supplies and food.

This year's goal is to raise $70,000.

"We need the support to take care of the animals to be able to keep doing what we're doing and getting those animals, who so deserve a nice loving home, to be able to take that time and be able to get that for them," says Heather Kather of the Lee County Humane Society.

Wendy, a six-year-old beagle mix, is one of the dogs up for adoption at the shelter.

The last day to donate is Dec. 2.

The team will be out next to Kroger off Glenn Avenue in Auburn from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
