BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

An area no-kill shelter is at capacity and asking for your help.

Animals at the Blytheville Humane Society need to find their forever home, but right now, their temporary home needs help.

The two biggest needs are adoptions and monetary donations.

The humane society is at full capacity, so an adoption would free up a kennel and those fees would go directly toward providing shots and spay or neuters for the other animals.

That’s also why they're needing monetary donations.

Bills for so many shelter animals add up quickly.

“And we do have some in foster homes as well,” volunteer Cheri Davis said. “They take care of them but if they need to go to the vet or they can’t afford the food then we have to buy that for them.”

Another way the humane society raises money is through their thrift stores.

People donate clothing, furniture, and more to be sold at the stores and proceeds go to helping the animals.

If you're thinking about adopting a new furry friend or can make a donation, contact the Blytheville Humane Society.
