BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – Berkeley Animal Center on Tuesday announced that it will not accept owner surrenders until January of 2022 as the shelter struggles with overcrowding.

Pet owners that must part with their pets are encouraged to consider rehoming their pet instead of dropping it off at a shelter.

Anyone who still wants to surrender a pet can schedule an appointment for January by calling (843) 719-5050.

Anyone interested in adopting a pet can schedule an appointment to meet available animals at this link.
