Valley Animal Shelter Drops Rates Due to Low Space

Posted: Updated:

A valley animal shelter is bursting at the seams.

The Shenandoah Valley Animal Service Center gets an influx of dogs and cats every summer, but with families on vacation and off their normal routines, adoption rates are slow.

The shelter is running out of space for all the potential pets so it's dropping the price of some animals and adult cats are free right now.

"Typically we see an increase in our intake in the summer for cats and dogs. We also see a decrease in adoptions and transfers during the months, mostly because a lot of other rescues and shelters we are used to transferring to throughout the year are also seeing the impact of the summertime as well,” said Lindsey Huffman, the center's director.

You can get the adoption process started on the center's website.
