BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Bangor Humane Society is packed with cats and dogs. The shelter has decided to not accept any more pets until homes are found for the current residents.
Executive Director Suzan Bell said, "Over the last five days for every cat that went out, two came in."
The Bangor Humane Society has joined the ASPCA's mission to place one-hundred thousand pets with a new family by October thirty-first.
"We want to get these guys into a home, they have been here long enough and they need to have a new family," said Bell.
Since August first the shelter has placed one hundred and thirty-one furry friends with a family.
"Adopting I think you are literally saving a life. These are cats and dogs that are here through no fault of their own and they are great animals that deserve a second chance," added Bell.
Until October 31, all adult cats are fee waived and adult dogs are half off the adoption fee. The shelter will also be posting daily events on their Facebook page.
