Animal shelter adopts out all dogs before Christmas

- An Alabama animal shelter has been able to adopt out all of its dogs ahead of a Christmas deadline.

The Fayette Animal Shelter posted a “CODE RED” on the facility’s Facebook page announcing the shelter was at maximum capacity with dogs and puppies in need of permanent homes. There was a concern that the shelter may have to put down some of the animals following the Christmas holiday if they were not adopted out.

“None of them asked to be born, bred, discarded like Tuesdays trash, or to be pups that have not gotten a chance to really know love and family from the moment they were pushed out of the womb,” a staff member said in the comments section.

The “CODE RED” post had been shared several thousands times.

The shelter’s Facebook page includes live videos of the animals with the names of each one.

Volunteers later posted that through various organizations and individuals, they were able to help all the dogs in their care. They urged those who still wished to help to check other area shelters.
