Charleston Animal Society to Hold Discounted Rabies Clinics in March and May
3/12/2013 10:12:48 AM

North Charleston, S.C. – Charleston Animal Society will be offering low cost rabies vaccinations on Saturday March 23rd and Saturday May 4th. Vaccinations will be available at the discounted rate of $10 at the shelter, located at 2455 Remount Road in North Charleston. The vaccination drives will run from 8 to 10 AM and all pet owners are eligible. Dogs should be on leashes and cats should be in carriers.

Firmly dedicated to the health of the community’s animals, Charleston Animal Society vaccinated 521 animals at its discounted rabies drives last year and 9836 animals overall in 2012. This not only improves the overall health of the local animal population, it also makes the community as a whole safer and healthier.

Founded 138 years ago in the heart of downtown Charleston, the mission of Charleston Animal Society is to prevent cruelty to animals by finding homes for homeless animals, containing outbreaks of rabies and other deadly diseases, reuniting lost pets with their families, fighting hunger when food is unaffordable, teaching children to be kind to animals and each other, and saving the lives of abused, abandoned and unwanted animals.

As Charleston’s largest animal rescue organization, Charleston Animal Society cares for 90% of Charleston County’s unwanted, abused and abandoned animals, yet continues to drive down the Charleston community’s euthanasia rate. In 2012, it spent over $500,000 treating animals, and saved nearly 75% of all the animals that came to the shelter, making it the leader among large animal shelters in South Carolina and a national model.

Charleston Animal Society is also the state’s largest spay/neuter provider. Its spay/neuter programs sterilized over 11,000 animals last year, which made a significant dent in the community’s animal overpopulation problem.

Additionally, Charleston Animal Society is South Carolina’s number one adoption provider, has the state’s most successful Community Cat Trap-Neuter-Return Program, and a nationally recognized Veterinary Science Initiative with high school students. By staying firmly focused on its mission, Charleston Animal Society saves more animals than all other animal organizations in Charleston County combined.

Charleston Animal Society was recently selected “Best Local Cause” in the Charleston City Paper’s readers’ poll and was named Nonprofit of the Year for 2012 at the annual “Giving Back Awards” gala sponsored by Charleston Magazine and the Coastal Community Foundation. Additionally, it was recognized for its fiscal responsibility earning Guidestar’s “Seal of Transparency”.
