Lynchburg, Virginia – The Lynchburg Humane Society is working to clear out its shelter after accepting nine dogs on Friday, said LHS’s Claire LeFew.
At this time of year, shelters are typically said to be gearing up for kitten season, but like other shelters in the Commonwealth, they’re breaking capacity records.
After adopting nine dogs, LeFew said the shelter had broken the record for the most dogs housed at a pet center — not a single kennel was open at their facility.
LHS staff are now enlisting the help of the community in hopes of finding home-loving furry friends.
The shelter will host a special adoption event on January 8 from 11am to 5pm, their website says.
According to the LHS site, during the event, the adoption fee for non-VIP dogs will be reduced to $17 and the microchip fee will be $15.
