Charleston Animal Society waiving fees on dog adoptions

Local News

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- The Charleston Animal Society is urging the community to make room for one more animal in their homes due to overcrowding.

The Charleston Animal Society is built to house 230 animals, but as of Saturday, there are close to 700 animals in the system. Many of those animals are in foster homes, but many other animals are filling up the shelter and need to find adoptive homes.

The Charleston Animal Society is offering free adoptions on all adult dogs through Sunday, September 16th. The Charleston Animal Society says the need is more pressing now that the Lowcountry is facing possible hurricane impacts.

Charleston Animal Society CEO Joe Elmore says, “We have had a great summer, but Mother Nature has caught up with us and with hurricane season heating up, we want to make sure these animals have permanent homes. We have made it through the majority of the year with a steady flow of adoptions, but right now we really need people to make room for one more.”

All dogs and cats come spayed/neutered with up-to-date vaccinations and a microchip.

The Charleston Animal Society is located at 2455 Remount Road, North Charleston. They are open Weekends from 10 AM- 5 PM and every day this week from 12-5 PM.
