Louisville Animal Shelter At Risk Of Losing Its No-Kill Status

posted by NewsRadio 840 WHAS - 

(Louisville, KY) - If the Louisville Metro Animal Shelter doesn't find homes for some of its strays, they will have to euthanize.  

The shelter achieved no-kill status just last year, but now they're so overcrowded that all they have time to do is clean and medicate the animals.

Director Ozzy Gibson says they want to save them all, but won't be able to if they don't get their numbers down.  

That's why the shelter says residents need to come and adopt the pets they're housing or find their lost pet.  

Right now ten dogs desperately need homes.
