ORIGINAL: An overcrowded animal shelter in Fayette plans to euthanize more than a dozen dogs not adopted before noon on Christmas Eve. The shelter’s director posted on Facebook that they are filled to max capacity on dogs and puppies.
The shelter’s situation is described as a Code Red, meaning the animals’ time is limited. The county commission requires that shelter dogs be euthanized after seven to ten days.
The shelter plans to open on Christmas Eve until noon in case anyone wants to adopt. For more information, click here.
