Buzzards circling a home tipped off neighbors that something was wrong in a Charleston County neighborhood. Once on the property, investigators found approximately 40 cats that need rescued, along with several inches of cat feces throughout the house.
In Orangeburg County, a man living with 8 dogs was evicted from a barn he’d been living in, leaving the dogs in need of new homes.
“Both of these cases are examples of people who may have the best of intentions, but then find themselves overwhelmed, putting not only themselves, but the animals in danger,” said Charleston Animal Society President & CEO Joe Elmore. “We need YOUR help to make things right for these innocent lives.”
Currently 29 cats have been rescued from the hoarding situation in Charleston County. The address is not being disclosed to allow Animal Control Officers time to complete the rescue of the remaining cats. The investigation continues.
The cats at Charleston Animal Society are facing numerous health challenges including malnourishment, parasites and other diseases. Despite this, the rescue team at Charleston Animal Society remains optimistic that most of the cats will eventually be healthy enough for adoption.
“We are working to save as many of these cats as possible and already have many of them on treatment plans,” said Charleston Animal Society Senior Director of Veterinary Care Dr. Lucy Fuller. “None of this would be possible without help from community donors.”
Animal Control in Orangeburg is overwhelmed and needed help, so they contacted No Kill South Carolina, a program of Charleston Animal Society to assist in the rescue of the 8 puppies.
The dogs arrived at Charleston Animal Society on May 1, and were immediately processed, and will eventually be placed for adoption.
SPAY-NEUTER SAVES LIVES
All of these rescued animals will also be vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered. Last year, Charleston Animal Society spayed-neutered 10,000 animals – thanks to the donations of community supporters.
Please Give and help us raise money to rebuild our spay-neuter fund for 2019 and help these animals and hundreds of more like them.
