Humane societies ask for help as shelters reach capacity

By Erin Anderson

Local humane societies continue to have their hands full.

The agencies in Kitchener-Waterloo and Cambridge are both asking for help as they deal with an influx of animals coming through their doors.

On Friday, the K-W Stratford Perth Humane Society said its centres were at capacity with no room for any incoming dogs.

A social media post said, “We are currently caring for almost 200 animals in need of homes and 63 animals are on a waiting list.”

They’re asking anyone who is able to adopt, foster, or donate to do so.

There will also be an in-person adoption event on July 10 from 12 to 7:30 p.m.

Over the weekend, the Cambridge Humane Society said its shelter is full of cats and it’s now dealing with a shortage of disposable litter boxes because of the LCBO strike.

“We use flats from their stores as disposable litter boxes as they’re more sanitary than traditional plastic litter trays,” read an Instagram post.

Anyone who has any extra pop, beer, or liquor flats is asked to drop them off at the Cambridge shelter.
