BOGO for kittens is back!  Adopt one adorable kitten and get a second kitten for a donation of your choice. Donation suggestions:

cash, cat litter, kitten food, canned cat food, kitten formula, cat toys

(If you are unable to adopt two kittens due to pet limit restrictions or financial issues, we will offer half off one kitten. Ask the staff for details)

 

We have dozens of friendly, adorable kittens waiting for their new homes. Currently, adoption fees for adult cats are HALF OFF!  Each animal has been altered, microchipped, and is up to date on immunizations.  In addition, the adopter gets up to 45 days of free pet health insurance and the cat or kitten gets a free vet visit.

We Are In Desperate Need of Foster Homes!

The number of cats, kittens, puppies, and dogs we take in during the spring and summer months goes up tremendously.  Help us keep our live release rates high!  You can help  us save as many animals as possible by opening your  home to a foster animal.  Medical expenses are paid for by donations.  The foster family is  responsible for food, flea and heart worm prevention, and LOTS OF LOVE!  If you are a disabled veteran, we have special funds to help you afford to foster. We have a special need for:

1) foster families who will take in litters of very young kittens and puppies. These young animals do not do well in the shelter and have a much greater chance of survival in a home environment. Once the kittens or puppies are old enough to be spayed and neutered they come back to the shelter for adoption. If you are interested in this short term foster program please contact Wendy at manager@summervillespca.org

2) foster families who will take in adult dogs. Our kennels are overloaded with adult dogs who  need to be placed in a loving home while they wait for their “furever” home.   Because dogs are very social animals, it is extremely hard on them to be kenneled for a long period of time.  Adult dogs are most at risk because they do not get adopted as quickly as puppies and often spend an extended amount of time in the shelter.  By taking in an animal temporarily, until they are adopted, you save that animal’s life plus another animal’s life by freeing up a spot at the shelter.

Contact Patti Kiraly at 843 873 5918 or tkiraly@sc.rr.com to find out more about the long-term foster program.

Summerville Bully Walk!        

 Do you have a dog who is considered a “bully breed”?  Would you like to socialize with other upstanding citizens who also own a bully breed?  Come to the Summerville Bully Walk.  We will be meeting the second Sunday of each month at 10am at Hutchinson Square, downtown Summerville.   We will walk as a group throughout the area to show people that bully breeds are normal, family pets.  Other breeds of dogs are also welcome! Contact Patti at tkiraly@sc.rr.com if you have questions.  See you on the square! (Due to the heat, we are canceling the walk for July and August… we will see you again on the second Sunday in September!)
