Using the hashtag "Savethe200" on its Facebook page, the organization hopes families will adopt the dogs before they have to be put down.
Hoping to increase the chances of adoption, the shelter will now stay open on Monday – Thursday from 10:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m., and on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. till 6:00 p.m.
