The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Animal Control Shelter is receiving help from animal advocates throughout Georgia and the Lowcountry.
The shelter is renovating, and they can only host two-thirds the amount of animals they normally do.
People from Atlanta are picking up dozens of cats and dogs to ease the crowding at the shelter.
New Animal Control Commander Cary Hill has made plans in his new post.
"The whole goal is to more or less, you know like I said, find homes for the dogs and just make sure my animal control officers here and my civilian volunteers have the resources and everything they need to do their jobs." said Hill.
The animal control renovations are expected to take four to six weeks to complete.
