HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -  From very busy, to very relieved! The Huntsville Animal Services shelter was at capacity as of Thursday morning. Workers were desperate to get animals adopted, so they waived the adoption fee for two days.

Good news is, 183 pets found new homes! Erin McCulley is a new pet owner and says she didn't end up with what she thought.

"We were looking at some of the kittens and it turned out they were all adopted, they walk you through the process, all the way through the back, there's animals of all ages and in the very back, there were a couple of kittens left behind and him. And he let me know he had to come home," said McCulley.

McCulley explains the process was nothing short of enjoyable. "Very open process. You're free to go play with the animals and try it out, there was no pressure to get one, it's been a wonderful experience," explained McCulley.

After the search, McCulley says her two sons aren't the only ones who will be anxious to see the new addition to their family. "They'll be excited. My other dog will be the most excited!," said McCulley.

Huntsville Animal Services wants the public to know that the summer months are extremely busy for them. Even though they adopted most of their animals during the waived fee event, there is still a need for adoption during the summer.
