The HCACC will not refuse to accept stray pets in Horry County. If you cannot afford to pay the intake fee please speak with a Customer Service Representative.
If your pet does not have a current Rabies vaccine, we can provide that for $10.00 at the time of reclaim. Microchipping can also be provided for an additional $15.00.
You will need to show identification such as a driver's license or state issued identification and should bring photos, vet records, etc. to verify proof of ownership. This facility is not a no-kill facility. While we offer every opportunity to find homes for all the animals, there aren't enough homes for all that come in. Euthanasia decisions are based on health, temperament, and the amount of space we have available. When you surrender your pet, you give up all rights and claims to that animal. We will not contact you further. If you are not comfortable with this policy, try placing an ad in the newspaper, online, or other facility before bringing the pet here. We cannot guarantee that your pet will be adopted.
Adoptions are on a "first-come, first-served" basis. We cannot hold an animal.
The Horry County Animal Care Center accepts cash, Visa & Mastercard as acceptable forms of payment. We do not accept checks (except for donations). Full payment is due at the time services are rendered. No payment plans are acceptable.
