It's crowded at Lubbock's animal shelter and the puppy and kitten population keeps growing. Abandoned adult animals are always filling up the shelter too.
Animal Service Education Director Laura Forsythe says just last month, 2,300 animals were picked up, including young ones. Forsythe says the summer time is generally when they see more kittens and puppies in the shelter. Forsythe says this could all be avoided if pet owners would spay and neuter pets, especially roaming felines.
