Most of the animals are already spayed or neutered and have their shots up to date, however younger animals may need to be returned later to have shots and/or spay/neutering done. The paperwork is easy and only takes a few minutes to fill out. For this event, adoption fees will be discounted to just $40 for dogs (normally $80) and $25 (normally $50) for cats which includes spaying/neutering, vaccines including Rabies, heartworm or leukemia testing, heartworm and flea preventative, intestinal parasite treatment and micro-chipping. Qualifying new pet parents also get 30-days free pet health insurance and coupons from local pet businesses.

There are three hurricane evacuation zones, which incorporates more land mass and requires additional people living in those areas to leave during certain hurricanes based on surge inundation instead of category of storm. It will be important for every resident to know if they live in a hurricane evacuation zone and what to do when asked to leave. Residents can visit the Horry County Emergency Management’s website at http://emd.horrycounty.org/ to view the hurricane evacuation zone maps and related information on how to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season.
To Know Your Zone and to learn more about hurricane planning, please visit Horry County Emergency Management at http://emd.horrycounty.org/ or call 915-5150.
