Alachua County Animal Services Over Capacity
Published June 20th, 2014
Alachua County, FL--- There is no more room, so Alachua County Animal Services is asking for the community's help.
Animal Services is experiencing a high level of animal intake and the facility is full.
Animal Services won't turn away any animals.
But any animal left at the facility at this time is in jeopardy of being immediately euthanized due to lack of space.
They're encouraging residents to think carefully before surrendering any pets and to consider options like local rescue groups or friends and family.
Hilary Hynes with Alachua County Animal Services said, "Animal Services can't turn away any animal but we don't want to be in that position where we're so full that we don't have no other choice than to euthanize healthy, adoptable pets."
They're also looking for foster homes for their adoptable pets.
We want to remind you that all adoption fees are being waived through August 31st.
