SPCA Animal Shelter in Monroe closing, adoptable dogs and cats need homes
The SPCA Animal Shelter in Monroe has announced it will be closing its doors soon and they are asking for help from the community to adopt the animals before it’s too late.
The SPCA Animal Shelter, located at 359 Spring Hill Road, says they have 20 dogs and 13 cats, 75% are adoptable. The other 25% are not adoptable due to health, age or behavioral issues. If they don't find a forever home in time for them, volunteers fear they'll have no other option than to euthanize the animals.
The animal shelter says they are going into foreclosure and the location will be auctioned off on May 6. All animals will have to be gone from the property by that date.
Volunteers like Kate Compton have started to push for adoptions and have set up a GoFundMe to help pay for vet bills.
The shelter has been operating for more than 20 years and says the news of the foreclosure has been heartbreaking.
"A lot of tears were shed, but we're just trying to muddle through, and you know, work as hard as we can, and as many hours as we can in the next few months and weeks to get them into homes and find their forever families," said Compton.
There will be an open house at the shelter this Saturday from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m.
