Regina Humane Society over capacity
The Regina Humane Society is hoping people want a little extra company in their life.
Every summer, a number fo animals come into the shelter, but this year seems especially high. Despite a record number of adoptions in July, the human society has no room left.
"Animals just keep coming in," said Don Simons, "it seems as fast as we can be getting them out, there's more coming in. So with 200 adoptions (in July), we're still sitting with about 315 in our care right now."
The shelter normally operates at a capacity of 200.
"It runs the risk of disease spreading between the animals, and it puts a lot of strain on the facility....and I suppose a lot of strain on the animals because of how crowded it gets. They don't get a lot of room and the amount of attention they should be getting."
