JACKSON, Mich. (WILX) - Due to a number of reasons, too many puppies are born in the south, putting them at risk for being euthanized.

Officials with the Jackson County Animal Shelter said it’s a constant crisis, which is why they’ve taken in 34 puppies from Mississippi for adoption. Most of the dogs are eight weeks old.

The puppies include hound mixes, border collies and a mix of several breeds they call a “Mississippi Special.”

As of Wednesday afternoon, they are down to only six left that need to find homes. The puppies cost $250, but the adult shelter dogs are up for adoption at a special price of $50 to honor the Mississippi pups. The $50 rate for adult dogs is good through Saturday.
