The 6th annual Barking for Bucks telethon benefiting the Greater Birmingham Humane Society wrapped up Sunday, but you can still donate.

The telethon is designed to help not only the shelter, but Animal Control and also Alabama Shelter Pets. All three organizations collectively take care of the 18,000 animals which they take in now versus the 7,000 they used to spay or neuter, give needed shots, groom them, then place up for adoption.

FOX6 News' own Jeh Jeh Pruitt and Mickey Ferguson were live at the shelter.

The total donations reached more than $65,000. The goal is $125,000. The event raised $75,000 in 2014.

If you are interested in donating, call them at 942-1211.
