Due to overcapacity, animals at the shelter may be put down faster than normal.

Local animal activists have expressed concern about the new policy at the Amarillo animal shelter that allows animals to be eligible for euthanasia only three days after coming to the shelter.

The Humane Society can only select 85% of those animals for its care.

Director Richard Havens shared with KVII ABC 7 that the shelter is not back to the original state of high euthanasia and there has been a jump in adoptions lately.
