Charleston Animal Society offering discounted adoptions

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston Animal Society is offering discounted adoptions on all adult dogs and cats through St. Patrick's Day.

In commemoration of the holiday, lucky owners will be able to take home their new best friends and good luck charms for only $17.

All animals come spayed or neutered, are fully vaccinated, microchipped, and are eligible for a free health exam from your veterinarian of the adopters choice.

As Charleston's largest animal rescue organization, Charleston Animal Society cares for 90% of Charleston County's unwanted, abused and abandoned animals, yet continues to drive down the Charleston community's euthanasia rate.

In 2012, it spent over $500,000 treating animals, and saved nearly 75% of all the animals that came to the shelter, making it the leader among large animal shelters in South Carolina and a national model.

Charleston Animal Society is also the state's largest spay/neuter provider. Its spay/neuter programs sterilized over 11,000 animals last year, which made a significant dent in the community's animal overpopulation problem.

The Charleston Animal Society is located at 2455 Remount Rd. in North Charleston.
