This week was a busy one for the folks at the Front Street Animal Shelter.
Starting July 1, the shelter was offering free adoptions for dogs and cats to try and clear up some space. This time of year they usually take in more animals, thanks to fireworks.
"The loud noises. the crashing and banging. The bright lights are very very scary for animals. so those animals that are outside, or living in the backyard, it can be a very scary time for them. they escape from their yard, they dig out. they jump out," said Jason Roberson, an animal care tech at the shelter.
The shelter had over 160 adoptions July 1 through July 4, but they also took in about 200 animals.
