HILLSBORO, Ala. - The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals continues to help run a temporary animal shelter in Lawrence County, and hundreds of dogs and cats are still in their care.  Today is the deadline for people who believe their pet may be there to come by to try to make a positive match.

The shelter is at 14934 Highway 20 in Hillsboro.  It's the old Hillsboro Gin & Feed Company.  The shelter is open until 6 p.m.

Please bring photos of your pet, veterinary records, or anything else to help make a positive identification.  Many families have visited already, and some have been reunited with their pets.

The ASPCA is planning a local adoption event next weekend, July 25-26 to give people in the community a chance to adopt the remaining animals.  Details will be released in the coming days, and we'll let you know as soon as we get them.

In June, more than 300 animals were seized from the Lawrence County Animal Shelter, which was located at director Bobbie Taylor's home.  Taylor surrendered this week on 17 counts of animal cruelty.
