“We are reaching critically full levels at the shelter, as this is our busiest time of year,” said Commissioner Jonathan Young, liaison to the animal shelter. “We really need the public’s help in finding loving homes for these animals. Please, if you are able, consider opening your heart and your home to a new pet. And if you’re unable to adopt right now, the shelter is always looking for donations.”
