Worth Humane Society already at full capacity

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -  Are you in the market for a new best friend? If you are, you may want to head on over to Worth County.

 The Best Friend's Humane Society has only been open a few weeks, and they are already at full capacity.

Thankfully, they've placed over 40 dogs into homes, that may have otherwise been euthanized, but continuing adoptions are critical in order to take more dogs in.

Nancy Krupa's family is now complete. Not only did she find a new companion, she found her dog Jack, a best friend.

She adopted Lucy over the weekend, at the Best Friends Humane Society Adopt-a-thon. "Once I saw Lucy, I thought she and Jack will get a long real good!"

Jack's needed a friend for a while now, and Nancy felt so bad for Jack being by himself so much. Now he and Lucy are inseparable.  "Best friends, best friends for sure!" Nancy said.

Whether your in the market for a loving family dog like Henry, Or a sweet Puppy like Chance, chances are Best Friends Humane Society in Worth County has just what you need,

The Shelter has only been open for 6 weeks, and they're already full. "We are probably right around 55 dogs we wont be able to take anymore in until we place some," said Shelly McPhaul, BFHS President.

Thankfully, they had one kennel left for Oliver, who was brought in this afternoon. That's why continuing adoptions are critical, in order to make room for all the dogs that need a home.

After all, there is no greater reward than saving an innocents animals life, "We are now able to save these animals that would have otherwise been put down,"said McPhaul.

And placing them with a family that is able to give them the love and care they deserve, "Best Friends Humane Society is surely a wonderful name, because these two certainly have become best friends," said Krupa.

You may want to stop by, because your best friend, or your pet's best friend may be closer than you think.

They've placed dogs all over the state of Georgia and Florida, but as soon as they place a dog, new dogs come in.

That's why they are encouraging the public to get out, and take a look because you'll never know what you'll find.

Right now, adoptions are only $75.00. Even if you don't have room for another pet,  you can always volunteer your time at the shelter.
