Albany - You can buy a Christmas ornament and help stray animals find a home. The Dougherty County Humane Society is selling dog bone and fish ornaments for their special Christmas tree. The five dollar cost goes to take care of the thousands of animals at the shelter.

"People do them in honor of a beloved pet or in memory of a lost pet. It's just beautiful to see the tree afterwards and to read the nice things people write about the pets," said Director Donna Strickland.

The Humane Society is also holding a Christmas Open House on Thursday from 5:00PM until 7:00PM.

Another Christmas tree will be covered with lights, one for every animal the was put to sleep this year as a reminder of the importance of spaying and neutering to control the pet overpopulation.
