NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) – The North Augusta Animal Shelter needs your help because the number of animals inside the shelters is growing.
Meet Bastian and Falkor. Until the adoption a few days ago, he had been at the North Augusta Animal Shelter for several months and was in danger.
It’s a story volunteers at the shelter see often.
“The shelter in North Augusta is a small shelter. We only have one animal control officer, Craig McBride, and he has about fifteen runs. So, the shelter fills up pretty quickly. So, we’re always looking for adopters. needs,” said Stephanie Ford, foster coordinator for Friends of North Augusta Animals.
Fosters and adopters keep dogs alive and keep volunteers from making tough decisions.
“Because the shelter is so small and we only have 15 runs, once it’s full, tough decisions have to be made and the dogs have to be euthanized,” Ford said.
Right now, the shelter has several dogs available for immediate adoption.
Coco, Topper, Winter and Buster are just a few who need your help.
“Dogs are probably not in the best shape at the shelter from being locked up to finding their forever homes and their families. Their health improves and their overall behavior improves because they are happy. And they’re part of a family,” Ford said.
For some of these dogs, you could be the difference between life and death. If you can’t adopt or foster, they can use your donations to keep the dogs healthy while caring for them.
