107 animals adopted out of Charleston Animal Society

CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Officials with the Charleston Animal Society say 107 animals were adopted this past weekend.

In 2012, the Animal Society adopted out 4,000 pets, saved 3,000 more by returning them to owners and spayed and neutered more than 10,000 animals.

As Charleston's largest animal rescue organization, Charleston Animal Society cares for 90% of Charleston County's unwanted, abused and abandoned animals.

In 2012, it spent over $500,000 treating animals that were ill or injured, many times in dire health, and saved nearly 75% of all the animals that came to the shelter, making it the leader among large animal shelters in South Carolina.

Last month, the Charleston Animal Society was named a top-rated charity organization by Charity Navigator, the nation's largest charity watchdog organization.
