— The Wake County Animal Shelter is at critical capacity and may begin euthanizing animals if more are not adopted, the shelter director said Thursday.

Jennifer Federico, director of the shelter on Beacon Lake Drive in Raleigh, said there’s room left for five more animals. The shelter is offering adoption specials for animals that have been there for a long time, and they are asking volunteer fosters and other organizations to take some of the animals.

Federico also appealed to pet owners not to surrender their animals because there’s no more room.

Visit the shelter or go online to see the animals available for adoption.
