The Albany Humane Society is getting a makeover thanks to some help from a national humanitarian group and national dog food company.
Albany-Dougherty drug agents say they're losing the battle against illegal narcotics.
Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit Commander Bill Berry told county commissioners the unit has seen a three-fold increase in methamphetamines over the last year.
He says agents seized nearly one million dollars of drugs, but he says that's only a fraction of what's on the streets.
"A lot of what we're getting is high quality Mexican meth that's coming in. But it's still, it's a bigger trend that what we've seen in the last few years, so that kind of draws our attention to it."
Berry says crack remains a major problem but meth could be the area's next epidemic.
He says officers are working hard to clean-up the streets, and he encourages people with information on drug activity to notify authorities.
