The Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center in Lyndhurst is in need of your help this summer.

They need people to adopt animals to reduce overcrowding at the shelter.

The Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center is the open admissions pound for Augusta County, Staunton and Waynesboro which means they take in any animal in the area.

Over the past one and a half months they have been experiencing "kitten season"

They have have over 130 cats and they are taking in more every week.

Those at the center just want what's best for the animals.

"We would like every healthy adoptable animal to leave our shelter alive. That's where the importance of adoption comes in; rescuing, fostering, anything that can get the animals out the door." says the center's assistant director, Lindsey Huffman.

The Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center takes in a lot of different animals.

They have plenty of dogs and cats but they also have received a lot of rabbits.
