Charleston, S.C. – The Charleston Animal Society personnel loaded 65 dogs onto a transport supplied by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) by Thursday morning to avoid the dangers brought on by Hurricane Matthew. Fifty two of the animals came from the Francis R. Willis SPCA in Dorchester County.
“We are in a position to reach out and help other area shelters, because in the end, all we want is a happy outcome for every dog in our area,” said Charleston Animal Society CEO Joe Elmore
The dogs will be transported to HSUS headquarters in Maryland and adopted.

This was third transport organized by Charleston Animal Society as Hurricane Matthew approaches. On top of these two transport efforts, 107 foster families came in to keep shelter animals for the duration of the storm.
Charleston Animal Society remains closed to the public for the duration of Hurricane Matthew and is not accepting animals until further notice, due to the emergency situation.
