Two animal shelters are at maximum capacity and looking for help from the public
ATLANTA (AP) — Two animal shelters are at maximum capacity and looking for help from the public.
WSB-TV reports that the DeKalb and Fulton County animal shelters are completely full.
Karen Hirsch, with Lifeline Animal Project, says each shelter received 700 animals just last month.
The animals have already been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and all the supplies and food they need will be given to foster families by Lifeline.
