PHOENIX (AP) - Maricopa County says its shelters are full with animals in the wake of the July 4th holiday and its attendant fireworks.

Maricopa County Animal Care and Control says its staff will work overtime to keep the two shelters open an extra hour to help reunite pet owners and their missing animals.

Spokeswoman Melissa Gable says only three of 232 stray dogs at the Phoenix shelter had collars with ID tags that helped reunite pets and owners.
