The Cortland County SPCA has announced that the organization is nearing capacity, and is no longer accepting own surrenders of animals for the time being. The SPCA says residents can help by considering adopting an animal or becoming a foster of an animal.
Currently, the shelter has 21 dogs occupying kennels with only two spaces left open. For cats at the shelter, there are currently 20 cats available for adoption, and 19 others who are either sick or injured. Additionally, there are 21 cats/kittens in foster homes and 7 dogs in foster homes.
Residents who find an animal are asked to call the shelter at 607-753-9386 and not to bring them to the shelter. For those who need to rehome a pet, resources are still available, the SPCA says. Residents may visit multiple websites for non-shelter rehoming such as rehome.adoptapet.com, getyourpet.com, home-home.org, and lollypop.org.
Donations to the SPCA are always welcome to help with the purchase of pet supplies.
