MIDLANDS SHELTER IN CRISIS: URGENT PLEA FOR ADOPTIONS
Charleston Animal Society’s hoping to clear its shelter to accept incoming dogs caught in crisis.
Charleston Animal Society is urging people to “please make room for one more, so WE can make room for one more!“
A Midlands shelter is in crisis, after 50 dogs who were living in one home were brought to their facility. The shelter is now overwhelmed and over capacity with only two staff members to care for over 100 total dogs. Due to the sensitivity surrounding the case, we are not yet identifying the shelter.
Earlier on Thursday, Charleston Animal Society’s No Kill South Carolina initiative sent an urgent appeal to more than 300 shelter and rescue organizations around the state, asking organizations to reach out and take in one or more of the canines in crisis.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Charleston Animal Society is making plans to take in as many of the dogs as possible. The more dogs we can quickly adopt into new homes, the more we can save from this emergency situation.
“This particular shelter is at the breaking point, and we all need to step up and help these animals,” said Charleston Animal Society President and CEO Joe Elmore. “As we reach out to help a community in crisis, we are turning to our Lowcountry community to make it possible. We are hoping that anyone who hears this will make room for one more, so we can make room for one more.”
Charleston Animal Society is following COVID-19 safety guidelines and is open for adoptions:
Weekdays: Noon – 5pm
Weekends: 10am – 5pm
Location: 2455 Remount Road, North Charleston 29406
