Bryan Co. Animal Shelter at full capacity
BRYAN COUNTY, Ga. (WTOC) – Animal shelters have not escaped the trends of the pandemic era.
Bryan County Animal Control struggled to bring the animals to their furry homes.
Bryan County Animal Control currently has only one open kennel. They said this was in part because it was kitten and puppy season. They say they’ve pushed their capacity limits, but still find homes for any animal that walks through their doors.
“May and June were the biggest influx. Kittens everywhere. Puppies everywhere. “
They call it the season of kittens and puppies.
“This is really our main influx. Dogs that aren’t sprayed and spayed or just people just don’t, either they don’t or when they decide to do it their cat and dog go out and they come home and come home. pregnant house, ”said Laura Lewis, Bryan County Animal Control Coordinator.
But Bryan County Animal Control says the pandemic could play a role in the numbers they see as well.
“Some people go back to work and feel guilty that they couldn’t stay home with them the way they wanted to, but when you come home from work, they’re there.”
The refuge therefore relies on help from neighboring emergency services when there is a lack of space.
“We welcome them and we do our best with what we have. We call for help and say “hey, can you help us? We welcome additional animals.
Although each week gives them a new challenge, they say they stay patient.
“It’s really just a waiting game.”
Until every animal has a home.
Bryan County Animal Control says their doors are always open and they’re still looking for hospitality commitments to work with their rescues.
