BLOOMFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

The Hartford Animal Shelter in Bloomfield is in need of the public’s help as the facility was nearly at capacity on Tuesday morning.

Shelter volunteers said their facility was "overloaded" and is desperately pursuing adopters for several shelter dogs. 

There is limited interest in adopting this week because it is vacation for some schools in Connecticut.

The space is rented out, so the shelter is limited on how long it can keep dogs. Once it has advertised that a dog is available, it has less than two weeks to find an owner.

Earlier this year, the Hartford Animal Shelter was at capacity, however the several stray dogs that needed to be adopted were able to find homes.

For more on how to adopt call 860-757-4395 or click here. You can also visit their Facebook page here.
