LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Animal Foundation announced Friday it is in a critical space crisis due to the high number of animals being brought to the shelter.

According to a social media post, The Animal Foundation has taken in 917 animals over the last two weeks. The Foundation said they currently have over 744 animals in their care.

The shelter said they are out of space to house any more dogs on their campus and urgently need 50 dogs of any size over 6 months old to go to temporary foster homes to help make space.

The Animal Foundation asks people to foster for a least a week.

“We are facing some very difficult decisions to ensure the well-being of our animals and team,” the post said. “This is our heartbreaking reality.”

In order to help make sure all dogs get fostered, the Animal Foundation is making it easier than ever. Through Monday, Feb. 19, those who wish to foster can go directly to the shelter’s adoption building to pick up a dog, no appointment needed.

The shelter asks that you do not bring your current dogs with you. They do not allow in-shelter dog-to-dog introductions.

The Animal Foundation will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Foundation is normally closed on Mondays but will be open on Feb. 19 due to the high number of animals in the shelter.

Available dogs can be found on the Animal Foundation website.

To speed up the process, the Animal Foundation encourages prospective fosters to fill out the foster application before they arrive.

There is no cost to foster a dog. The Animal Foundation will provide fosters with food, crates, a leash, or anything fosters may need. If you end up falling in love with your foster dog and want to make it permanent, The Animal Foundation will waive the dog’s adoption fee.

The Animal Foundation is located at 655 North Mojave Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89101.
