SHELBY CO., Ala. (WBRC) - Shelby Humane posted on its Facebook page Tuesday morning that it has reached max capacity.

The shelter says animals are being brought in faster than they can get them adopted. There are ways you can help, including becoming a foster or adopting.

“We are struggling finding forever homes for our animals,” said a spokesperson with Shelby Humane. “Surrenders are up 60% over last year. Our building can comfortably house 120-150 dogs, and 50-70 cats. We are currently housing 300 dogs and 130 cats. We need everyone’s help by adopting, fostering, or donating items such as food, blankets, dog crates and more.”
