Since its founding in 1874, Charleston Animal Society’s mission has remained the same: The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Their vision is one where all healthy and treatable animals are saved. It’s a vision where all people and animals are treated with respect and kindness, and it envisions a world where cruelty is not tolerated.
Charleston Animal Society (CAS) is the only open-admission shelter and American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited veterinary clinic in South Carolina. They take in nearly 10,000 of the community’s homeless and unwanted animals each year, and are the only animal welfare organization named in the South Carolina Emergency Support Function (ESF 17) for disaster preparedness and response. Using a 10-point lifesaving strategy, CAS has sustained a No-Kill community for seven years with a live release rate of over 90%. Through the No -ill South Carolina Initiative, they partner with shelters in every county in the state to improve the care of companion animals, to increase lifesaving and promote adoptions.
Charleston Animal Society’s team is honored to partner with The Grey Muzzle Organization to create an innovative and easily shared media kit to increase senior adoptions throughout South Carolina. Dogs like Roxy have so much energy and love to give much like a 40- or 50-year-old learning to stand-up paddle board or trying to date again. Pick Me! SC is a statewide adoption event coordinated with No-Kill South Carolina community partners that connects 46 counties in seven media markets. The Grey Muzzle Organization media kit will be shared with all to help senior shelter animals shine!
