The Moultrie-Colquitt County Humane Society seeks volunteers, according to WALB.
The Colquitt County Humane Society is fighting the Animal Homeless population by encouraging people in the community to adopt.
“The first thing is always spaying and neutering your pets to keep unwanted litters from getting there and we find that we take in a lot of puppies and kittens, especially this time of the year,” said Drew Durham, executive director of Colquitt County Humane Society. “So that’s really the main thing there is spay and neuter is a key component to reduce unwanted litters and unwanted population and reducing the stray population.”
“We had a great year for adoptions and rescues in 2020. Last year was a little down and this year is down as well too,” said Durham. “So we’re not sure if it’s just the economy, in general, that’s causing people to not be able to afford to keep their animals. That’s a lot. That’s a big reason that we’re hearing but they’re wanting to bring them over to us as they can’t afford them anymore.”
“I think everybody should take the time and go volunteer at the animal shelter one time, just get the experience. To see the animals that need help and just kind of take it all in,” said [Moultrie resident Angel] Strickland.
They also need pet food, according to a post on Facebook.
