FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Fort Worth is again asking for help alleviating overcrowding at the city’s animal shelter.

Animal Care & Control says it took in 150 new animals over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. To help bring its numbers down, the city’s code compliance director said that the shelter is offering half-price adoptions through Sunday.

“While overcrowding is not as bad as the last major spike, this is still a serious situation,” said Brandon Scott Bennett, City of Fort Worth Code Compliance Department director, in a prepared statement. “Any time we are over capacity, it puts animals at greater risk.”

Dogs and puppies are going for $24.50 while cats and kittens are $12.50.

Bennett said that interested parties should visit one of the two PetSmart Charities Adoption Centers before going to the shelter, because they stay open longer, “which can make it easier for individuals to view pets.”
