Animal shelter needs more people to adopt pets

A plea for help from the Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control.

More than 450 dogs and cats need a forever home.

A spokesperson says its' not uncommon to see a spike in June and July. But the number of animals at the shelter is so large it may have to take extreme measures to make room.

"This year honestly this is probably the worst we've seen it in years. It's where we're actually consider the possibility of euthanizing certain animals to make space for the new ones coming in," said Elizabeth Harfmann with the Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control.

Animal Care and Control is also running specials, which can include free adoptions.
