Charleston Animal Shelter Pleads For Foster Families As Animal Numbers Skyrocket


As summer temperatures rise, Charleston Animal Society officials report an increase in animal intake. The shelter urgently needs more foster families for cats and kittens as space decreases.

Since May 1, the shelter has taken in 1,000 animals and fostered over 400 cats, kittens, and puppies. However, hundreds of animals still need homes.

Families interested in fostering can visit the shelter Monday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Additionally, the shelter encourages participation in summer programs, fundraisers, and volunteering to help save animal lives.
