GREENVILLE CO., S.C. (WSPA) — Greenville County is preparing to provide shelter to more than 400 animals whose owners have evacuated ahead of Hurricane Matthew.

Greenville County Animal Care will serve as a primary source pet shelter for Charleston County residents evacuated from the coast.

In order to serve friends during this state of emergency, Greenville County Animal Care will suspend all regular daily activities.

Those with Wellness Clinic appointments have been notified, according to officials.

Adoptions and all other regular Greenville County Animal Care functions will resume on Monday, Oct. 10th.

“We are diligently working with numerous local and national pet rescue groups in an attempt to get our current pet population adopted or fostered. However, we do have the space to properly accommodate our current population and those expected to arrive throughout the week,” Bob Mihalic said in a statement.

Those wishing to support Animal Care during this time of crisis can do so via the Second Chance Fund. Click here for more information.
