BASTROP COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A Texas animal shelter has issued an appeal for adopters after seeing an unusually large increase in puppies, including dozens from a single household.

The Bastrop County Animal Shelter said Thursday it was looking for new homes for more than 100 puppies and small breed dogs. The shelter said its high puppy population is due to an influx of new litters.

The shelter said more than 80 animals came from a home whose owner died in February. The county said the animals were well taken care of, but none were neutered or neutered, and they “just continued to have litters.”

The shelter said it is working to adopt as many animals as possible to open up space for even more litters.

“Bastrop County Animal Shelter is facing a cuteness crisis,” said Ashley Hermans, director of animal services at Bastrop. “We are desperate for adopters as there are many more litters of animals waiting to come from our community.”

Here are some puppies available for adoption.
