Effingham County Animal Shelter dealing with full house

Posted: Updated:

In Effingham County, officials with the Animal Shelter said they are doing all they can to find homes for animals, but they said it's a losing battle because so many people aren't spaying or neutering their pets.

Eighty animals were euthanized last week, but the shelter remains full.

"This time of year is bad everywhere, but we have a lot of puppies coming in and cats without mothers," said Adoption Coordinator Bill Cowan. "It's just a bad time of year."

If you are interested in adopting an animal, you can call the Effingham County Animal Shelter at 912.754.2109 or you can visit the shelter, located at 307 GA Highway 119 South in Springfield.
