GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- The Rogue Valley Humane Society says it's been busier than ever rescuing animals from dangerous situations.
Executive Director Margaret Varner said the shelter has intervened in three separate hoarding situations in the last month.
"In the last few weeks it's probably been about 40 cats," Varner said.
She said the shelter figures out how many animals it can care for, and it brings them in where they get all the medication and help they need.
However, those supplies aren't free.
Varner said the shelter needs to raise around $645,000 to keep its doors open.
"We don't receive county or city funding, it's all by the good graces of the community and our events and grants so if you can help, we really need some help," Varner said.
