Animals Need Your Help! #AdoptDontShop

This one is heartbreaking, but we're hoping by posting we'll get some of you to get out there and #AdoptDontShop and find your new best friend!

Los Angeles city officials are putting out a plea for help because all six of their facilities are filled to capacity.

The 4th of July holiday brought a lot of animals into shelters after they were found wandering the streets and haven't yet been reunited with their owners, but then THREE different hoarding cases brought almost 300 MORE animals into the shelter.

Right now they're overwhelmed, so they're hoping that they can get people out to adopt their next best friend.

Because of the overcrowding, 250 animals are currently on the 'Red List', which means, if they don't find a home, they will be euthanized.

LA Animal Services Spokesperson, Ashley Rodriguez told NBC4:

"Just because they are on the list doesn't mean they will be euthanized. We do our best to find a home, however, it it ultimately up to the adopters to get these animals out of the shelter.'

If you're able to foster, that can help too.  It gets the animal out of the shelter until a home can be found.

So please, if you're looking for your new best friend, or can help with a foster, contact L.A. Animal Services at (888) 452-7381 ASAP!   You can also check out the website for more information
