ONALASKA, WI (WKBT) -

Hundreds of animals found a new home in our area this year.

The Coulee Region Humane Society says 930 animals are with their new families.

That's about a three percent increase from last year’s total of 907.

A Humane Society Spokesperson says the society is lucky to live in a great community that helps the organization achieve its goals.

"We do our best to spay and neuter animals, so we're always trying to reduce the population of homeless animals that are in our Coulee Region area, but if we can do our best to place as many animals as possible, that's the ultimate goal," said Liz Meil from the Humane Society.

The organization also transferred about a hundred animals to other shelters and rescue groups with hopes of them being adopted faster.
