GUILFORD COUNTY - It's no secret. If you own a pet, you know he cost of food and boarding for your pets can quickly add up. If you throw in medical care costs, you'll really see the cash fly out of your wallet.
In Guilford County, more and more pet owners are being forced to give up their pets to the animal shelter. More than 100 pets have been surrendered this month, and the shelter only expects that number to grow.
In the end, many of these animals do end up euthanized. At the Guilford County Animal Shelter, there is no limit for how long an animal can stay there if the staff is confident the pet will get adopted.
