LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- More than 115 pets had been brought into the Lied Animal Shelter on Saturday at of 4:45 p.m., a typical number for the day after a Fourth of July holiday.

Rachel Wright, communications coordinator for The Animal Foundation said the intake of pets is expected to be higher today and Sunday and perhaps for a few days. Part of the increase is because of the holiday.

"We take in about 110 a day and took in 40,000 all of last year," Wright told News 3. "We expect it to be higher than normal for the few days after the holiday because people find animals in the street and Animal Control is called more often on days after the holidays."

The reception department is open at the facility at 655 N. Mojave Rd. in northeast Las Vegas from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day while the adoption department is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The phone number is (702) 384-3333.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
