Charleston Animal Society has had a surge of cats come into the shelter in the past week, leaving it filled to “cat-pacity.” More than 165 cats have been brought in during the past seven days from around Charleston County. “In one case, we received 30 cats from just one home,” said Charleston Animal Society Senior Director of Veterinary Care Dr. Lucy Fuller. “Many of those cats are extremely friendly and are already available for adoption.”
To help with the overcrowding, Charleston Animal Society is offering free adoptions on all adult cats and offering kittens for ½-price through October 28.
All Charleston Animal Society pets, including cats come spayed or neutered, with all shots and a microchip. “Overcrowding is a critical situation that happens occasionally throughout the year, and we are hoping there are cat lovers who can help us now in our time of need,” said Fuller.
If you can’t adopt, please ask about Charleston Animal Society’s fostering program. If you need assistance re-homing your pet, there are ways to do this without taking your pet to an animal shelter. To learn more, go to CharlestonAnimalSociety.org/rehome-your-pet.
