YOU’RE WATCHING NUMBER ONE, NEWS13 AT 6:00. HATE TO REPORT ON SAD A LOCAL ANIMAL SHELTER IS EXPERIENCING AN INCREASE IN ANIMALS BEING RETURNED. Bob: LACEY LEE IS LIVE DOWNTOWN AND THE SHELTER WHAT SHE HOPES NEW POTENTIAL PET OWNERS WILL DO MOVING FORWARD. RIGHT? Reporter: GOOD EVENING, BOB AND MEGHAN. WHO COME AND ADOPT TO DO TWO THINGS. RESEARCH THE BREED THEY WANT AND SPEND TIME WITH THE ANIMAL BEFORE ADOPTING. THE PRESIDENT OF THE FLORENCE IMPORTANT TO ADOPT THE BEST BREED THAT FITS THEIR LIFESTYLE. FOR EXAMPLE… AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD MIX, A TO HAVE A JOB AND SO, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU GET THEM HOME, THEY MIGHT NOT WANT TO SIT ON THE SOFA ALL DAY LONG AND WATCH TV. THEY WANT TO DO SOMETHING Reporter: MOST OF THE SHELTERED ANIMALS COME FROM HORRIFIC SITUATIONS AND NEED MORE LOVE AND CARE. IT’S AN ADJUSTMENT TIME AND PROBABLY AT LEAST THREE WEEKS TO SIX WEEKS DEPENDING ON THE SITUATION THE ANIMAL HAS BEEN IN. Reporter: THE STAFF REALIZED AN INCREASE OF ANIMALS BEING RETURNED THIS SUMMER. WE ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME BEFORE THEY ADOPT. INTERACT WITH SEVERAL DOGS. GO THROUGH THE AREA. IMPORTANT THAT PEOPLE REALIZE… THEY’RE NOT LIKE TRYING ON SHOES, LADIES. THEY’RE NOT ACCESSORIES. THEY DO LOOK GOOD, YES. THEY HAVE NEEDS JUST LIKE WE ARE DO AND WE NEED TO ADDRESS THAT. Reporter: ROSWELL UNDERSTANDS IF THE PET IS NOT GREAT FOR THE FAMILY. ALREADY FULL CAPACITY. WE’RE ALWAYS GOING TO TRY TO MAKE SPACE FOR ANIMALS BUT UNFORTUNATELY THERE IS A LIMITED NUMBER OF CAGES. THERE IS A LIMITED NUMBER OF KENNELS AND I DON’T THINK IT’S FAIR FOR AN ANIMAL TO BE PUT IN A CRATE IF THAT’S ALL WE HAVE TO OFFER. Reporter: ROSWELL SAYS THEY’LL PARTICIPATE IN THE CLEAR THE SHELTER ADOPTION EVENT STARTING AUGUST 23 AND WANTS PEOPLE TO DO THEIR RESEARCH FIRST. LACEY LEE, NEWS13.
