KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Animal shelters in the Kansas City area are offering discounts on adoptions because the cold weather has them crowded with dogs and cats that need a home.

The Kansas City Star reports that the KC Pet Project is caring for more than 500 animals because of the recent frigid temperatures.

So all dogs are being offered for $35 and cats are being offered for $15 at the main shelter in Kansas City, Missouri.

The shelter’s marketing director Tori Fugate says there’s a huge need for families to adopt pets to free up space at the shelters.
