We Are In Desperate Need of Foster Homes!

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 noon 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! (BULLY WALK MOVED TO DEC. 21 THIS MONTH DUE TO CHRISTMAS PARADE ON DEC. 14)
