Needing help: The Chilton County Humane Society serves as a shelter and adoption center for animals.

The Chilton County Humane Society is currently seeking donations for their shelter.

The shelter is looking for supplies of any and all kinds.

“We need garbage bags, large towels, latex gloves, food, litter, old sheets, detergent and candles,” said Kelly Cost. “We need candles because we use a lot to keep the place smelling fresh.”

Cost also said that the shelter could use monetary donations as well as more adoptions to help alleviate overcrowding.

“ We are at capacity,” she said. “We probably have anywhere from 75-100 animals. We don’t turn anyone down.”

Cost also said that the shelter is trying to put together special deals to encourage adoptions.

“Right now, cats and kittens are $50,” she said. “That includes spaying and neutering.”

She also said there would be more specials on animals in the upcoming months, and that the adoption process was open to all.

“Just come down here, and fill out a contract agreeing to take care of the animal,” Cost said.
