THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The Thomasville-Thomas County Humane society is seeing more adoptions despite tight family budgets.

During Victorian Christmas last week the humane society had pets up for adoption at our WALB Bureau in downtown Thomasville.

They adopted 16-pets last week. Workers are pleased with that number.

They say since then they've had a constant crowd of pet seekers.

"Considering the economy I'm surprised. We have taken in more animals in the last few months than usual, and that doesn't surprise me. But the adoptions have not let up," said Carol Jones, Executive Director at the Humane Society.

Even though adoption numbers are high workers say they never match the number of animals brought in everyday.

Many people can't afford pets right now, so the humane society is taking in more.

Pet adoptions are 100 dollars. That includes spay and neuter operations, rabies shots, vaccines, and a test for heart worm or feline lukemia.  Feedback
