June 23, 2018 - 10:26 am

The Louisiana SPCA is past capacity and is cutting adoption fees in half this weekend to help find new homes for pets.

103 animals were taken in last week, according to the LASPCA, pushing them past their capacity of 350.

The shelter took in 24 pets surrendered by their owners, 35 animals rescued by Humane Law & Rescue and 44 homeless animals in the last week alone.

"While the organization is currently reaching out to several partner organizations both locally and nationally for assistance, the potential relief will not be enough," according to a release from the organization.

Adoption fees normally range from $40-$200, but will be cut in half this weekend.

Adoption hours are Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday Noon to 4 p.m.
