Urgent Need for Adopters Due to Overcrowding at Garland Animal Shelter

In previous article, the statistics on available spaces for animals taken in by the Garland Animal Shelter was 102. Only 102 spaces available for the annual intake of approximately 12,000 animals. Approximately 65% are euthanized due to overcrowding.

The volunteers at Garland Pawsibilities oversee and coordinate a monthly adoption event for additional exposure for the animals at the City of Garland Animal Shelter. There were 26 dogs that were brought to the adoption event at Firewheel Town Center on Saturday, May 15. Sadly, there were 6 dogs left behind without yet finding their forever home.

Garland Pawsibilities report an urgent need for the remaining 6 dogs. Their futures are dim. The Garland Animal Shelter is filled to maximum capacity, with these 6 additional (adoptable) dogs that will be in line to be euthanized within days.

Your actions could save a life and bring a new Best Friend into your life and into your heart. Garland Pawsibilities are working diligently against the clock in hopes that these dogs are not euthanized without giving them a chance to find a forever home.
