Charleston, SC – In conjunction with Armed Forces Week, the Charleston Animal Society will offer FREE Adoptions and FREE Spay/Neuter for the pets of Veterans and Active Duty Military and their families from Friday May 13th-Sunday May 22nd.
On May 14th at 11am, the public is invited to attend a special dedication of the Joan August Terry military memorial that will be placed on Charleston Animal Society’s campus to commemorate the service of not only military men and women but also the animals that served alongside them. “Charleston Animal Society has always had the deepest appreciation possible for our military and they are among our most loyal supporters, through adoption, fostering and volunteering,” said Charleston Animal Society CEO Joe Elmore.
One military adopter who will be on-hand at the May 14th ceremony is retired Air Force Captain Patricia Riley, “Boomer came to me in 1991 and saved me. Shelter dogs provide the unconditional acceptance, love and structure so many of us need. As I realized, we do not rescue dogs, they rescue us”
