Hurricane Matthew Update: Horry County Animal Care Center Strays

Date: October 6, 2016
Time: 8 a.m.
 
Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Animal Care Center (HCACC) will open today and tomorrow from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. for citizens to reclaim their pets that may have been picked up as strays.  The HCACC cannot accept drop offs at this time and will be closed except for the above (staff is still caring for the animals).
 
In preparation for Hurricane Matthew, the HCACC has been able to transfer approximately 40-pets who would have otherwise been up for adoption.  These pets went to rescues outside of the potential impact areas.
 
Should an evacuation be ordered, the Horry County Animal Care Center would like to remind residents to either take their pets with them (if able) or make arrangements from them to be cared for outside of the evacuation zone.  Do not leave your pets at home!
 
For more information or to see a list of adoptable pets and those that have been brought in as strays visit the Horry County Animal Care Center’s web page athttp://www.horrycounty.org/Departments/AnimalCareCenter.aspx.

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Animal Care Center will hold a vaccination clinic, 19 July 2016, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the animal shelter located at 1923 Industrial Park Road in Conway.  The Clinic will offer the following services:

  • Distemper/Parvo                  $10--must be at least 8-weeks old (canine)

Dogs and cats are both welcome; dogs must be on a hand-held leash and cats must be in a pet carrier.

The Animal Care Center holds these clinics monthly.

To help homeless animals in Horry County find loving homes, the Animal Care Center will offer discounted adoptions the first Friday and Saturday of each month.  Potential adopters are encouraged to visit and spend time with the animal they are interested in.  All 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.  Adoption fees are discounted and typically include spaying/neutering, vaccines, heartworm or leukemia testing, heartworm and flea preventative, intestinal parasite treatment and microchipping.  Qualifying new pet parents also get 30-days free pet health insurance and coupons from local pet businesses.
