ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Southwest Georgia Humane Societies are overcrowded and officials across the region are calling for people to spay and neuter their pets.
The Albany-Dougherty Humane Society like others in Moultrie, Lee County, and Thomas County have been shocked by the numbers of drop offs they're getting. Over the last three months in Dougherty County they've taken in 1,500 animals.
Humane Officials say they're getting litters of puppies and kittens which means people aren't having their pet spayed or neutered.
"Just litter after litter. This month we've been taking in maybe a lot of day 30 to 40 to 50 animals a day so we're overrun," said Donna Strickland, Albany Dougherty Humane Society Director.
While they're overrun, the donations they receive have also decreased. In Dougherty County they have a program to help defray the cost of having your pet fixed.
At this point they say they're willing to negotiate with people to volunteer hours or bring in supplies in exchange for the cost of neutering their animals.
