BEAUFORT, S.C. (WSAV) – With life slowly returning to regular, animal shelters within the Lowcountry hope folks will proceed to make adoptions.
Staff on the Hilton Head Humane Association stated they’re dedicated to discovering forever households for homeless animals.
“There’s so many times where someone comes in and they’re thinking about adopting and it’s kind of a beautiful thing when they see that animal and that animal sees them and it’s just a perfect fit,” stated Brittany Bennington, Kennel Manager for the shelter’s Okatie campus. “You can just tell, instantly, their life is changed.”
Dedicated to being a secure haven for animals, within the final yr, the group rescued greater than 3,000 deserted, injured and abused animals.
“In Beaufort County, you see the feral cats, there’s a lot of them. We have our feral cat program and I do believe it’s made a huge impact over the last couple years,” Bennington stated.
Now with two campuses in Beaufort County, a $100 adoption charge might place one in every of their forever pals in your loved ones.
“Between both campuses, here on Okatie and on Hilton Head Island, we have approximately around 42 dogs available and 44 cats, including kittens, available,” Bennington added.
All adoptable animals have microchips, up-to-date vaccinations and are spayed or neutered; furthering the affiliation’s mission to chop down on unintended litters. Staff say nothing beats the second one in every of their animals will get positioned with a loving household.
“Our main goal is we want to find homes for all of the animals we have, and we know that some of them are going to be more difficult than others because they’re not a kitten or puppy. We had a cat, a 10-year-old senior cat, that had been here for one year, one month, one day, and the day she was adopted was the best,” Iris Abbott, their Adoption Facilitator, defined.
Abbott stated she hopes extra folks will understand how a lot an animal can change your life.
“To me, the greatest sound in the world is a kitten’s purr. It calms me, it makes me happy.”
