The Bowling Green-Warren County Humane Society is up to its ears in puppies and kittens and now the shelter’s to find homes for all these new arrivals.
Within the last seven days Lori Hare of the Humane Society said that nearly 200 dogs and cats have been dropped off, bringing the shelter’s total to 350 pets, which is the most it can hold.
Hare said a warmer winter and pet owners not spaying or neutering their animals has led to the sharp pet increase.
“[In] Spring we always expect an increase in population. The difference this year is we never got a Winter break. With the weather so mild, cats and dogs continued to go in heat and continued to breed,” Hare said.
