TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- The Tallahassee Animal Services Center is waiving fees on all adoptions on Thursday.

Officials say the facility is filled to capacity, with more than 120 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens.

Traditionally, fewer shelter animals find homes this time of year.

Perri Dale of the shelter explains that the weather may have something to do with why the shelter is so full.

"Springtime is typically your puppy and kitten season, so get a lot of animals coming in there, we're crowded during the summer months. And we start to slack off during the cold weather, well today is our first day of cold weather. So that's what we are speculating what's happened, is that the dogs and cats out there don't know that it's winter time yet so they're continuing to reproduce," said Dale.

All pets adopted from the Animal Service Center are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped. Potential adopters are encouraged to bring their own leash or carrier for transporting their new companion safely home.

Free adoptions are Thursday, December 3 from 10:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Tallahassee Animal Service Center (1125 Easterwood Drive).
