Several animal shelters across San Diego County are facing a state of emergency due to overflowing facilities.

One organization that steps in to help is the San Diego Humane Society.

On Saturday morning, many got the chance to help raise money for the organization that helps tens of thousands of animals.

Proceeds from the event will directly support essential services such as sheltering and medical care for animals in need.

The San Diego Humane Society said it is committed to remaining a no-euthanasia shelter, but the shelter faces some challenges because of the high number of animals in its care.
