Panhandle Humane Society dogs are making moves

Posted: Updated:

As the cold weather moves-in for the season, dogs at the Panhandle Humane Society are making moves of their own.

The dogs are heading back inside for winter.  During the summer, a lot of the shelter's canine residents move to outside kennels, where there's more space.

But the Panhandle Humane Society is currently over-capacity, so there isn't enough room inside for all of the dogs.

Director Kathy McDaniel says the shelter is running a special on dog adoptions, hoping to make more room and find some dogs their forever homes.

McDaniel is hopeful some dogs will be adopted before the end of the month, alleviating space concerns.

However, if the problem persists, staff at the shelter will be looking for temporary foster homes, so dogs aren't left out in the cold.
"We're looking at any kind of fostering for anyone who's interested in helping us out with that," says McDaniel.  "Just to give them a warm place to be because we don't have to leave them outside.  We have a lot of labs and stuff that can take the elements, but we'd rather not leave them out there."
