LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41)---Officials with Louisville Metro Animal Services say space is running out for new pets at their locations.
They tell us they've had a major increase in pets over the last few weeks, which has them now making a plea for the public's help.
At the Animal House Adoption Center and the Manslick Road location there are more than 250 cats, and 200 dogs.
Officials say they're concerned with these numbers.
"Just the summer months, it's our busiest time of the year and we really need the public's help. We have no vacancies at either of our facilities," says LMAS Director Justin Scally.
When you walk in the Animal House adoption center, there are signs encouraging you to take home one of the pets.
This is the time of year when officials say shelters across the country see big increases.
"I think some of it has to do with economics. Some of it has to do with lack of spay/neuter. There's a lot of resources within the community that folks can take advantage of. And the other is identification. If your pet is lost, come and check the shelter," says Justin Scally.
With standing room only for some pets and space running out, Director Justin Scally says it's putting a strain on their resources.
He says, while foster families and rescue groups have helped, there are still many more animals that they're concerned about.
"The problem is it causes a backlog and so we have many animals coming in and not enough going out, so there is the potential that if animals aren't adopted they could be euthanized, and so that's why we're putting out this plea so we can help prevent that euthanasia," says Justin Scally.
Officials say they are running adoption specials thru August 5th to help find some of these pets a home.
