"We don't have money to pay extra staff. We don't have the extra money to take care of extra animals, so we really are in desperate need of some help right now, " said Director of Marketing and Development Chase Inman.
The shelter is offering incentives with their adoption program to try to find the kitties a good home as soon as possible.
