ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The numbers are staggering 4,420 animals were put to sleep by the Albany Humane Society so far this year.

Thursday afternoon they thanked their supporters who help to keep hundreds more alive, and had an open house to get a few more adopted.

This year they introduced two new ways to help raise money to keep the animals until they find homes.

A new calendar and Christmas ornament will help to raise funds for the shelter.

"We were trying to figure out a good way to raise money for the humane society and Christmas was right around the corner, what better way to raise money, it's Christmas and glass ornaments are really popular people want something original on their trees," said Jason Beaver, Q&H Glass by Magyar.

in addition to funds from the ornaments and calendar, The Albany Autumn Classic charity horse show back in October raised $8,500 for the humane society and presented a check at the open house.
