CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston Animal Society is asking potential new pet owners to go check out all of the wonderful dogs and cats available at their adoption center during their "12 Strays of Christmas" adoption drive.

The shelter at Charleston Animal Center is severely overcrowded, leading them to hold this special holiday-themed adoption drive. As part of their "12 Strays" promotion, they are also offering adopters the opportunity to have one of "Santa's elves" deliver the newest family member to their home on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

All of the animals at Charleston Animal Society are fully examined vaccinated, and spayed or neutered before being put up for adoption. This, along with their "canine-ality" or "feline-ality" profile can be used by potential adopters to ensure that they find the pet that is "right" for them.

As Charleston's largest animal rescue organization Charleston Animal Society takes in over ninety per cent of the area's unwanted and abandoned animals, and does not turn animals away. Despite taking in thousands of animals each year, the Charleston Animal Society does not euthanize for space, which often leads to overpopulation crises at the adoption center. By adopting an animal from their shelter, a family is not only providing a dog or cat their holiday wish of a new home, but they are saving a life and clearing up badly needed space at the shelter.

The Charleston Animal Society, located at 2455 Remount Road in North Charleston, is South Carolina's number one adoption provider and also has the state's largest spay/neuter program.

Their hours are: Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
