The Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County faces a critical situation with 607 animals in need of homes, causing overcrowding and resource strain. They urgently appeal for adoption, fostering, or volunteering due to the challenges posed by increased intake. The shelter acknowledges financial support from the county but emphasizes the impact on their capacity. Help is needed to address prolonged stays for animals. The community is urged to take action through adoption, fostering, or volunteering, with a foster program available for temporary care. The AWL website provides information on various ways to contribute.
