Lehigh County Humane Society takes in puppies, dogs from overcrowded Louisiana shelter | Lehigh Valley Regional News
ALLENTOWN, Pennsylvania – Some furry friends recently joined the Lehigh County Humane Society from an overcrowded Louisiana animal shelter.
“We rescued some dogs that were supposed to be euthanized because of overcrowding at their local animal shelter,” said Hal Warner of the Lehigh County Humane Society.
Currently, 23 puppies, like little Oreo, and three adult dogs call humane society their temporary home.
“Some of the pups are mixed breeds. Some are small, some medium, some large. So we have a lot of different sizes to choose from,” Warner said.
Warner says the process of introducing it is easy. Just go to the Humane Society website, click adopt, then click on the Adoption Application.
“You can go to our website online and fill out an online application. It takes about seven days for us to process it and then we’ll get back to you to let you know you can come over and meet your next best friend, ”said Warner.
And if you’re not ready to make room for another now, there are still ways you can help, according to Warner.
“We need help from the community. We need towels that are donated so we can keep these animals clean, ”said Warner.
They also accept wet cat or dog food or donations any time of the year.
“We have a lot of great animals down here that are ready for adoption, so we want the public to come in and take some of those animals home,” said Warner.
