With an influx of animals and a serious lack of volunteers, the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter was forced to close its doors Thursday, according to its Facebook page.
To help them out, the Greater Birmingham Humane Society is stepping in, taking the overflow of animals to their location and reducing adoption fees.
Starting Friday through the end of June, dogs four months and older will be available for a fee of only $45 (dog adoption fees normally range from $75 to $150) and cats and kittens of all ages will be available for a fee of $60 (cats also range from $75 to $150).
Hopefully the reduced fees will make room for the Tuscaloosa animals GBHS will be picking up on Monday. The pets are either owner surrendered or have stray holds that have expired.
