Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) is at full capacity for housing dogs at their facility in Chapel Hill. They are asking for assistance from anyone currently able to adopt a dog. During the month of June, all adoptable cats and dogs over four months old are available for only $25 as part of an adoption special. Adoption fees for some pets at OCAS have also been fully or partially sponsored to encourage adoptions.
“We are concerned about the increased dog population at our shelter,” said Dr. Sandra Strong, Director of Orange County Animal Services. “We really need more dog adoptions in order to balance the population and keep the shelter from becoming overcrowded. We have many wonderful dogs waiting for a home. We hope our community can help by visiting the shelter and adopting a new best friend."
Anyone interested in adopting may stop by the shelter during operating hours. No appointment is needed to view available pets. The shelter is located at 1601 Eubanks Road in Chapel Hill.
