Charleston Animal Society is reaching out the community for help in finding homes for the surge of incoming pets by asking for everyone to spread the word and ADOPT!

Just within the past two weeks, 251 dogs and 464 cats have been brought to Lowcountry’s largest animal rescue organization and it is becoming an issue.   

“The overcrowding is a critical situation for us,” said Charleston Animal Society Chief Executive Officer Joe Elmore, “we don’t have any room left and we are asking the community to step in and help.”

So if you're looking for a new addition to your family or know someone in the market-ADOPT from your local shelter! 

If you can’t adopt, please ask a friend or family member to adopt. You can also donate to help provide critical care to lovables like these two at www.CharlestonAnimalSociety.org.
