After holding a free adoption event in August resulting in 135 adoptions, Saint Frances Animal Center in Georgetown County is in need of homes for almost 300 cats and dogs, due to overcrowding.
"For every animal that goes home through the front door, it seems several come in through the backdoor. The number of stray, abandoned or surrendered animals that we are receiving this summer is simply unreal. We are doing everything in our power to feed, medicate and house these poor babies," said SFAC Executive Director Wendy Goude.
Goude added that the facility can hold 250 animals comfortably and the center is nearing 300 animals in house again.
"I have been with this organization since 2011 and I have never seen as many animals come in as they have this summer. Never before has our situation been so urgent," Goude added.
Saint Frances will be offering 50% to 75% off of adoption prices through Thursday, September 12th.
Upon adoption, every cat and dog is micro-chipped, spayed or neutered and vaccinated with 30 day free pet insurance at no additional cost.
