The Humane Society’s Facebook page says the Georgia Department of Agriculture issued a Monday, March 23 deadline to reduce the number of dogs living a the facility to "one dog per pen, or 65 dogs" total. 

Using the hashtag "Savethe200" on its Facebook page, the organization hopes families will adopt the dogs before they have to be put down.
