Pet Adoption Fair

More than 100 pets without a home in Pike County need to find owners this weekend.

Humane Society officials say the shelter is beyond capacity so they are having an emergency pet fair Saturday to relieve the overcrowding.

Pike County Animal Shelter workers call this puppy season.

Directors say the recent cold weather brought dozens of homeless dogs to their doors needing to stay warm.

Now more than 100 of man's best friend are crammed in cages together.

Workers say they cannot handle them all.

Workers say this many together can cause diseases and say the close quarters is not healthy for the dogs.

They say some dogs are even depressed.

Workers want to find homes for all of them. Saturday they are teaming up with Science Diet and offering prizes and gifts to people who adopt a pet.

They do not want to put any puppies down.

They hope all 100 find someone to care for them.

The shelter is open on Saturday from 10 to 4 so people can adopt these pets.

You can also make arrangements to have them spayed or neutered.

The Pike County adoption fee is 50 dollars and that includes spaying and neutering.

If you can't go Saturday, the shelter is open everyday next week.
