Here is an excerpt from the Live 5 News article about our Great American Rescue Event!
Last week’s free adoption event at the Charleston Animal Society (CAS) is extending into this week after overwhelming support from the community led to record-breaking adoption numbers.
The Great American Rescue kicked off Tuesday, July 22 at CAS. Originally scheduled to run one week, the free adoption event was a way for the no kill shelter to alleviate over-crowding.
Dan Krosse, a marketing representative for CAS, says the free adoption campaign was so wildly successful that it has been extended through August 3.
Wildly successful may be putting things lightly.
Krosse says last week alone, from Tuesday to Sunday, a total of 322 animals (105 dogs, 214 cats, 3 other animals) were adopted. It was the first time CAS averaged over 50 adoptions per day during the time of the campaign, with an animal being adopted every six-and-a-half-minutes during the times they were open.
