Talent, Ore.--   The Jackson County Animal Shelter has reached capacity for taking in cats.

They said it's an earlier than normal and very busy cat season. They need more room for the summer.

Director, Barbara Talbert said right now they have 36 adult cats available to adopt and 50 in foster care.

She said all of them need a home to make room for other cats who need it.

"This is happening because there are cats out there that aren't spayed an neutered and they have more kittens and it just continues to be a cycle that builds every year."

Talbert said it's common to get a lot of cats when the weather gets warmer. She urges people to adopt the adult cats and consider becoming foster families.
