NIAGARA FALLS, NY - The Niagara County SPCA is in the process of addressing an overcrowding issue the agency has at its Niagara Falls location. The SPCA says it has too many dogs and cats there.
In the next couple of years, the agency is preparing to no longer accept domestic animals from Niagara Falls.
"It's not just an SPCA issue, it's a community issue," said Amy Lewis, the executive director of the Niagara County SPCA.
Too many dogs and cats are coming into the facility and not enough are being adopted. It's severely overcrowded in this no-kill shelter. There are more pets than there are kennels and cages.
"The staff is so overwhelmed our technicians are caring for way too many animals," Lewis said, "I think it's not fair to the animals to be housed in this kind of manner."
