ASCAS joins National Adoption Weekend event


Mark Your Calendars for September 16th – 17th!

A Second Chance Animal Shelter is partnering with Best Friends Animal Society for their upcoming National Adoption Weekend to Help Combat the Growing Shelter Crisis in America.

A Second Chance Animal Shelter and Best Friends Animal Society, a leading animal welfare organization working to save the lives of cats and dogs in America, are teaming up for another adoption campaign to encourage people to choose to adopt, not buy, their next pet.

“Our shelter is experiencing a previously unheard of increase in abandoned and owner-surrendered dogs and cats, and we need room for those waiting to get in. Many of these animals are now ready for adoption, pre-adoption or fostering. If you have ever considered adding a new best friend to your family, this weekend is the time!”

“The shelter will be open on Friday, the 16th and Saturday the 17th. Please call for hours and to let us know you are coming. 803-473-7075.”

“There is a growing shelter crisis across the country and the animal welfare community won’t just sit by and let innocent pets die,” said Julie Castle, CEO of Best Friends Animal Society. “In fact, it’s quite the opposite. We’re joining forces with our vast network of shelters and rescues across the country to host our third National Adoption Weekend since May to incentivize people to get out and adopt.”
