OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City's Animal shelter is at capacity housing anywhere from 500 to 700 animals a day, but donations are low right now.

Tuesday, they posted a cry for help on social media showing their dwindling stock of blankets and towels. Patiently these animals wait to be taken to their new home; passing the time by playing with toys or napping on blankets towels.

“Blankets and towels get used really quickly. So the animal gets a new fresh one everyday sometimes a couple of times a day,” said Julie Bank, Oklahoma City Welfare Superintendent.

It usually means a lot of laundry daily, but lately there's not much to fold. Older blankets have needed to be retired while others go home with the pets to help ease the transition.

“We could go through what we have there in a day and still need more,” she said.

Empty shelves at the shelter show the desperate need for donations.

The shelter accepts donations seven days a week at 2811 SE 29th Street.
