IT'S NOT 101 DALMATIONS... IT'S 57 CHIHUAHA'S... HOW DID THEY COME TO THE GREATER BIRMINGHAM HUMANE SOCIETY

Laura Golden from The Greater Birmingham Humane Society tells us why more dogs are being surrendered.

Laura: "We were contacted by these animals owner who is a breeder. He's unable to care for these animals, anymore because of the struggling economy."

It's a problem she says that's happening more often with pet owners.

 

Each pup she says has a distinct personality and have names like Lexie here... They are now hoping they will get a loving home for Christmas.

It can be challenging trying to find a home... For so many tiny dogs.

But there's a plan.

 

LAURA. "we have help from North Shore Rescue in New York they will take half and take them up to NY where they'll be adopted.

But still what do you do with more than two dozen Chihuahuas?

They are calling on all animal lovers to help them find homes.

LAURA. We will still have a lot of Chihuahuas that will need great homes.

A lot of people will need to step up.

LAURA. They're great dogs.

The dogs will be 150 dollars... that's the normal fee.

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society is calling on local veterinarians... to help with spaying and neutering.
