Only one word do describe the work Charleston Animal Society does AMAZING !!!
Charleston Animal Society has been such a breath of fresh air for the Charleston Community. The organization really takes to heart the saying of "it takes a village." The organization gets the community active in helping it reach it's goals. And they never seem to settle for success, they continuously grow their programs to serve more animals in more places across our community and the state. Charleston Animal Society is leading the charge and not excluding anyone.
Amazing organization that has blessed our family with our dog. Staff was super friendly and we are beyond blessed to have him in our lives
CAS has to be the finest non-profit anywhere! The team, from the top-notch staffers and vets, to the loyal and dedicated volunteers, provide the best animal care to ALL animals. They travel to areas overwhelmed by flooding, or mass turn-ins due to animal abuse or neglect, etc., and treat and eventually re-home these animals. They continue their fine work to educate to prevent animal abuse. In my 20 years of living here and watching the changes, it is so clear that their hard work has had a far-reaching impact. We are a no-kill society and no-abuse too. Their dedication comes from the heart. Plain and simple – Charleston Animal Society is the BEST. Thank you for all you do for the animals.
I can't say enough at how GREAT and CARING Charleston Animal Society is. They go above and beyond to help ALL animals, not just dogs and cats and to find them a loving forever home. I myself have adopted more animals from there than most people have and wouldn't change 1 minute of my time with my babies. I met Kay when I adopted Lupe who was the sweetest tiny chihuahua. Needless to say, he was spoiled rotten until he crossed the bridge. I recently (3 weeks ago) went back and adopted another chihuahua as we missed having one running all over the place. I pray that one day, all animals that pass through CAS find a forever home. YOU ARE THE BEST! I also donate to CAS in different ways.
I love Charleston Animal Society. They are the flagship of no-kill compassion for animals in the Charleston area.
I have lived in the Charleston area for 30 years and the Charleston Animal Society, which used to be called the John Ancrum SPCA, has always been there for animals and has evolved as the city has grown and gained an international reputation.
Of particular note, it has been bold in its approach as a "no kill" shelter AND taken on a powerful interest group, the horse carriage businesses, in working to improve conditions for horses that are increasingly stressed by heavy traffic, congestion and extremely hot conditions.
I know them both as a professional, as a journalist at the local daily newspaper, and as a client, having adopted two animals from them in the past eight years.
The staff works hard to broadcast the plight of homeless and abused animals via TV, print media and social media. The Charleston Animal Society gained international attention for saving a dog, later named Caitlin, which had its muzzle taped shut, and for prosecuting the owner.
They are always ready to respond to emergencies, such as dogs caught in disasters or found on properties of animal abusers and hoarders.
The Charleston Animal Society is more than worthy as a "Great Nonprofit."
Charleston Animal Society does so much for the pets and people of Charleston County and South Carolina. I adopted my cat Broccoli there and now he is the king of my household.
Charleston Animal Society does so much to connect with the community. I wouldn't have found my pup without their connections.
Charleston Animal Society's forward thinking is a breath of fresh air. The staff and volunteers work tirelessly to fulfill the mission and provide excellent care to the animals. The No Kill South Carolina initiative is instrumental in preventing needless euthanasia to healthy dogs in the state.
A wonderful shelter for animals! They continue to do amazing things for the community.
This organization is prejudice against Hispanics and people of color. Have heard comments and stories of mistreatment.
I am grateful to Charleston Animal Society for saving so many lives, especially my Phrynie Belle! I call her my Wild Child, but the fact is she is just a very happy young dog! Her spirit and determination has taught me patience and her cuddles and kisses remind me how wonderful unconditional love is. I am so happy that Charleston Animal Society is working on making the state a no kill state so everyone will have the opportunity to experience unconditional love if they are willing!
My family became complete after I adopted my Peaches from Charleston Animal Society! She is now 16 years old and her eyesight is failing and she moves a bit slower. If it was not for this amazing organization Peaches would not have had a second chance and my family would t be complete!
It is my pleasure to share my interaction and story about Charleston Animal Society. I love to support an organization that is literally "lifesaving" and "life changing" for so many people and animals. The love and care given to each animal is unmatched by any other organization I have ever witnessed. The love and support from the community really shows that it is a collaborative effort to continue to sustain the No Kill Charleston initiative. No Kill South Carolina is making such an amazing impact across the state. I am a proud supporter of Charleston Animal Society!
I've fostered and adopted 3 wonderful pets from Charleston Animal Society. All of them were "foster failures" and I love them more than anything. I'm so thankful that Charleston Animal Society treated them for multiple issues before I adopted them, because I can't imagine a world without them (or a world without Charleston Animal Society!).
I've adopted one dog and one cat from Charleston Animal Society. They were both given second chances and a new life because of the efforts of Charleston Animal Society. My two year old hound mix, Strawberry , came into CAS with 6 other dogs and was terrified of people, one of the dogs that she arrived with had burns down his back. The staff of Charleston Animal Society treated her sibling's burns and worked to socialize her with people, after she would finally open up to people they placed her in a foster home to continue her socialization, lucky for me, that foster home was my home. Everyday CAS works to improve the lives of animals through their spay/neuter clinic, adoption center, free roaming cat initiative, and more. I now work at CAS, and donate my extra time and money to helping to make sure that Charleston will stay a No Kill Community! There is nothing better than watching a new adopter go home with a pet that is being given a second chance.
Charleston Animal Society has helped Thousands of animals . With their help and support my animals found their forever home.
Charleston Animal Society is a wonderful place to adopt from, both of my cats are from this wonderful facility. I fostered my tri-pod cat because her leg was amputated and she was very stressed in the shelter. Fortunately, she didn't leave my house :) I could not recommend a better facility to adopt from all pets come spayed or neutered, vaccinated, all pets are examined by a licensed veterinarian and the adoption process is wonderful and thorough. Everyone needs to stop by this wonderful and caring facility!
I started volunteering in 2013, the year they became no kill. I worked in the newly formed kitten room and interacted with the staff throughout the shelter. I was then and continue to be overwhelmed with the love and commitment shown by the staff. Before coming to volunteer I had adopted a kitten from there and also given small donations that I could afford because I knew of them as a worthwhile non profit. I have seen the various programs grow and develop and I admire their determination to improve shelters throughout the state, sharing their knowledge and resources. I also foster kittens and adopted Chloe several years ago. She was brought in by animal control at less than four weeks and was severely ill with upper respiratory. They did not give up on her even though it was touch and go for about two weeks. The vets and staff even took her home at night a few times. Now she is fat and definitely sassy! She enjoys interacting with the various foster kittens.
I adopted a heartworm positive dog from Charleston Animal Society and the experience went beautifully! The staff and veterinarians were very responsive to her needs and the animal society covered all the costs associated with the treatment, which saved me hundreds of dollars. They are an AAHA accredited facility (even our regular veterinarian hasn't achieved this yet), so I knew she was in the best hands for her treatment. I would definitely adopt from them again!
I've fostered and adopted 2 cats and 2 dogs from Charleston Animal Society. The support and attention given helped me with the decision to make room for one more animal in my home. Louie, our most recent addition, came in as a stray with heartworms, an embedded collar and needed his leg to be amputated. The medical treatment given to save his life is so appreciated as he makes our home complete! Having only 3 legs is not an issue for this spoiled dog! Thanks CAS!!
I have seen first hand what amazing work CAS does for the community and the animals in our community. They deserve every praise! Adopt don't shop! No kill is a big deal! Donate from the heart!
