MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – (Thursday, June 29, 2023) – Berkeley Animal Center is implementing an emergency moratorium on animal intakes due to being at max capacity. Until further notice, the shelter will only accept animals that are in danger or that present a danger to others.
The animal center has had an influx of animals in recent weeks and is critically over capacity. In response, Berkeley Animal Center has reduced adoption fees to $20 for all dogs and cats six months and older.
The shelter is urging the community to consider fostering or adopting. Anyone who is missing an animal is also encouraged to come to the shelter to see if their pet is there.
“We are issuing an urgent plea to our community right now for help. The animal center is overwhelmed and out of room. This is a critical time for our neighbors to step up and open their homes to a pet in need. We need more fosters and more adoptions immediately.” – Heather McDowell, Berkeley Animal Center Director
People interested in adopting or fostering can stop by any time Tuesday – Saturday from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Our shelter is located at 131 Central Berkeley Drive in Moncks Corner. For more information, call 843-719-5050.
