Time has run out for adult cats at the Charleston Animal Society.
UPDATE: FEBRUARY 6th - Thanks to a tremendous rally by Charleston animal lovers, all the adult cats CAS originally had available have found "forever homes". More cats will be available Tuesday, February 9th, with the same zero cost adoption promotion going on through Valentine's Day, for cats at least three years old.
ORIGINAL REPORTING: FEBRUARY 5th - With intakes of adult cats increasing, and adoptions down, starting today (February 5th) the shelter must begin euthanizing healthy, friendly, "pet-purrfect" adult cats purely due to lack of room.
Their mission is to save lives, not end them, and to that end CAS will waive the adoption fee for adult cats ages three and older through February 14. (This includes things like microchip, shots, etc.)
If you've been thinking of adopting a cat, the timing (and price) couldn't be more compelling. The Charleston Animal Society has a new website.
