DOG CRISIS AS HURRICANE FLORENCE APPROACHES!
As hurricane season heats up, we are keeping a close eye on Hurricane Florence, which as of Saturday, is projected to be off the South Carolina coast by Thursday. Right now, we are above capacity with adult dogs and could really use your help! If you can adopt, we are offering fee-waived adoptions. If you can foster, at least through the potential storm, that would be extremely helpful. Can You Make Room for One More? All animals come micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and tested for their behavior and health. Come visit us at 2455 Remount Road in North Charleston!
PLEASE NOTE: Dog adoption specials only apply to adoptions at the shelter and do not extend to off-site adoption locations.
If you can’t adopt, will you consider sponsoring an adoption? >Click Here to Make an Adoption Happen!
Provide a Kuranda Bed for One of Our Dogs!
Give our dogs and cats a lift with the orthopedic support and off-the-floor comfort of our patented chew-proof Kuranda beds. These beds offer a wonderful source of comfort and security for our animals as they wait at the shelter for their permanent new homes.
We have a Charleston Animal Society Kuranda page already set-up and ready to go. Just click here and when you make a donation purchase, the bed is sent automatically to Charleston Animal Society. Your gift is also tax-deductible!
There is also a specially-designed bed for larger dogs that is more expensive, but would be very helpful in our shelter. Click Here for details on the Silver Aluminum Suite Bed.Shop at Kuranda

What Adoption Fees Include
There are lots of things to prepare, before you bring your new pet home from Charleston Animal Society. The good news is, we can walk you through all of the steps. Plus, we have everything you need from leashes to crates, to food bowls at our Charleston Animal Society store. Here is a great article to read from the ASPCA on getting ready for your new arrival!
24 PetWatch Pet Protection Services will cover you when your pet needs essential veterinary care from an illness or injury. Every time a completed application for a ShelterCare program is generated through our shelter’s website, we automatically receive a $25 donation to help cover common needs like blankets, litter, and food. This donation is of no cost to you and provides us with essential funds. Make the right move and enroll today!
We urge you to try everything possible before giving up on your animal.
