It happens every New Years and Fourth of July. All the big noise celebrations means the Humane Society of Central Oregon gets filled up - quick. Lynne Ouchida with the shelter says the kennels are full. "When we get 17 stray dogs in, basically within one to two days, that really fills up out kennels.  So we're asking the community to come and reclaim their pet as soon as possible.  That allows for other animals that are caught by animal control or good Samaritans to be able to bring them in and we can get them settled until their owners come." Ouchida says most of the animals are cold and scared and although the shelter is a good place for them, it's not their home.  Also, the shelter is so full, that some residents who capture a wandering pet are caring for them until the owner is found. She says you can see photos of the animals on the shelter website: hsco.org.  They will hold the animals for five days before the become available for adoption.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
