Henderson Co. Human Society seeing higher than normal numbers

Spring is kitten and puppy season, and animal shelters say they see a large influx of animals because of it. 

But, one shelter in Henderson County is seeing higher numbers than usual.

The shelter director says they are getting an average of 10 to 12 cats and dogs every day.  

To prevent over crowding for the month of May, adoptions will be half off. That means dogs are $40 and cats are $30. All animals are fully vetted and come with a chip. 

The director of the Henderson County Humane Society says despite the high numbers the shelter has reached a milestone. For the second month in the row, it has not had to put any animals down.

"It's unheard of from this shelter. Not even to have one month, but to have two months in a row," says Joshua Cromer with the HHS.

But to keep that up, they'll need people to help. 

"We need adoptions more than we've ever needed adoptions ever before. So we encourage people that if you're looking to add a furry member of the family, to come out to the humane society," Cromer says.

The shelter director wants to remind people that the most important thing you can do is spay and neuter your animals to keep the pet population down.  Low cost clinics are often available throughout the Tri-State.
