EDMOND, Okla. -- The Edmond Animal Shelter needs help. They are way over capacity. The facility is equipped for 50 animals. They currently have around 150. 

They are desperately seeking people who can adopt or foster the dogs and cats. Summer is normally a busy season because kittens are born and people are away on vacation and don't want to adopt when they know they're going out of town.

Unfortunately, Animal Control Officer Cara Drake, said if these animals don't find a place to go many of them will have to be put down.

"We take pride in being a low kill facility, but we're at the point where we're going to have to make decisions on really good animals that are highly adoptable but we just don't have anywhere to put them," Officer Drake says.

Adoption fees are $25 for a pet that is vaccinated, spayed or neutered. 

Please call the Edmond Shelter at (405) 216-7615 for more information or visit their website here.
