SLO County Animal Services says shelter is full, and they need your help

San Luis Obispo County Animal Services tells KSBY their shelter is full, and Wednesday officials sent out an emergency email asking for help.

Officials said high numbers of owner surrenders, and strays from Fourth of July fireworks have left the shelter at capacity. There are only two quarantine kennels available. They've doubled up dogs in kennels when they can, but the situation is serious.

The shelter supervisor is asking foster families and better yet, forever families to come down and pick out a new best friend.

"We're contacting Woods Humane Society to see if they can fit another dog or two for us, and I've got some other dogs going to other rescue groups, that they're willing to take, so we're just doing everything we can to open up room and not have to sacrifice anybody," said Shelter Supervisor Andrea Liddie.

Websites like Craigslist post dozens of lost local animals, but Liddie said it's important to check with Animal Services also, if your dog went missing.
If you'd like to help out by adopting an animal they all come microchipped, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered.
