"People just dump dogs and its every day," said Sallie Morris.
"All kind of excuses to get rid of their animals," said Melanie Tatum.
"This guy he had a home, he sits, he stays, speaks he's house trained," said Tatum.
12 year old Browner was abandoned by his family of more than ten years.
"Now he's just dumped out there like trash."
Tatum said she Browner under he wing, but says he's not the only one who's been left to face the real world alone.
"It's not fair it's not his fault."
But she said the problem of abandoning dogs isn't anything new.
"My mom would tell you I've been bringing stray dogs home since I was about 4 years old."
Tatum said she gets the call everyday of yet another dog without a home.
"If humans don't help them who will," she said.
Sallie Morris with Morris Safe House said she knows they can't save every dog, but they still try.
"I turn so many dogs down a day that is just gut wrenching," said Morris.
Her safe house is constantly full, but summer months are especially hard.
"Stop and think what that does to that dog," she said, "you are turned loose in a big wide world its hot right now they cant handle the heat."
Morris thinks the increase in dog dumping comes from a certain crowd, college students.
"Soon as tests are done for finals dogs and cats are dumped like crazy."
