A South Carolina animal shelter is shuttering its doors because of a lack of funding and dozens of homeless cats and dogs need somewhere to go. Doc Williams SPCA Adoption Center made the announcement via Facebook on November 24:
Sadly, Doc Williams SPCA Adoption Center is closing due to insufficient funding. All qualified 501(c) 3 rescue entities and all qualified adopting persons please come to the adoption center at:
2673 South Live Oak Drive, Moncks Corner, SC 29461. There are 27 dogs and 45 cats that need loving homes or placement with a rescue agency immediately. Thank you for your support.
Helping the cats and dogs
The shelter has dropped the adoption fee for the cats and dogs remaining at the facility and is hoping that members of the community, as well as other rescue groups, will step up to help.
According to the social media post, the shelter is hoping that people will help get the word out, and offer to lend a hand to care for the remaining cats and dogs until they have found somewhere to go.
There are still over two dozen medium to large breed dogs in need of somewhere to go.
Open Sunday- 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Monday – Saturday 11:00 am to 5:00 pm
Contact: 843-925-1922 or 843-425-3811
Please leave a message and calls will be returned promptly.
