The Humane Society always has better luck finding homes for younger cats and dogs, said Humane Society director Kathy Sowell, but has been able to find homes for animals of all ages pretty successfully this summer.
"This is a hot-pick time.We had a real good month last month," Sowell
said."Last weekend alone we adopted out 23.That includes three adults."
Though business has been better than usual for the last year, according to Sowell
, the Humane Society
may not even be putting a dent in the unwanted pet population in this area.That's evidence that not enough people spay or neuter their pets in York and Mecklenburg counties, Sowell
"There's no way we can handle as many requests as we get," Sowell
The York County Humane Society
is not a no-kill facility, Sowell
said, but they won't put down a healthy animal.
"What money we do get goes back into the care of the animals," Sowell
