Local animal shelter must reduce numbers or euthanize many dogs and cats

WILLIAMSTOWN, Kentucky (FOX19) - The Grant County Animal Shelter is planning an outdoor adoption on Saturday for dogs and cats that will otherwise have to be euthanized.

Currently the Grant County Animal Shelter is housing 75 dogs but only have 60 kennels. The numbers have to be reduced to make room for new animals that are brought in every day.

The adoption will take place at Kroger Marketplace at 635 Chestnut Dr. in Walton from 10 am to 4 pm. Dogs and cats will be there to meet the public and will be available to adopt that day.

Adoption fees have been temporarily reduced to help move animals quickly. Dogs will be available for $100 and cats will be available for $35. All of the dogs and cats have been spayed or neutered and are up-to-date on there vaccinations.

The animals that are not adopted will be euthanized on November 22nd.

The adoption center says that this is only a temporary solution. The only way to reduce the number of unwanted litters is to spay and neuter their pets.
