There's no shortage of precious pooches at the Abilene Animal Shelter. But that has developed into a problem for the city of Abilene.
Overcrowding of the Animal Shelter is a problem that has been taking place throughout the summer and even though the shelter has already adopted away one hundred pets, too many aren't being picked up.
Over seven hundred animals were brought to the shelter to be adopted and not even a quarter of those will go to find homes.
Aaron Vannoy, Animal Service Manager, said that whatever the shopper is looking for can be found at the shelter.
"We have some really great animals out here. We have pure-breeds, mixed breeds... we've got just about anything that somebody is looking for." Vannoy said.
From the 140-pound Great Dane to the 2-pound Chihuahua, all breeds and sizes of dogs and cats are available and waiting for someone to take them home.
Any person that is looking for a new addition to the family or a man's best friend is encouraged to make all the difference to a needy pet.
"You're going to give the cat life or the dog life and they're just trapped up here. You could be giving them new life."
