Dog overcrowding at Humane Society of the Treasure Coast

$5 adoptions on cats, dogs and other animals

PALM CITY, Fla. — Animal shelters across the area are all facing the same overcrowding problem.

The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast has 51 dogs up for adoption and 36 kennels. Some dogs are taking refuge in offices and other rooms at the animal rescue.

Right now, in honor of WPTV NewsChannel 5, the shelter is adopting pets out for $5. That includes other animals then dogs, like cats, guinea pigs and even a rooster.

Three dogs were named after familiar WPTV personalities like Ashleigh Walters, Hollani Davis and myself, T.A. Walker.
