FOTAS Clear The Shelter adoption event


AIKEN, SC (WJBF) – Friends of The Animal Shelter needs your help! The Aiken County Animal shelter is overcrowded and in crisis.

This means the shelter has 84 kennels full, with some containing multiple dogs. The shelter is at the point where difficult decisions may have to be made.

Last month, the shelter took in 450 homeless pets and with intake numbers increasing, adoption numbers are declining. Please consider adopting on clear the shelter day!

All adoptable pets will be sponsored and available for no charge during the event.

Clear The Shelter adoption event will be from 9:00 am-12:00 pm on Saturday, August 21st. The event will be outside. Please bring a leash/collar or cat carrier. Social distancing protocols will be observed.

For questions, please contact the Aiken City Animal Shelter at 803-642-1537, or visit
