The Aiken County Animal Shelter is participating in the Empty The Shelters: Holiday Hope Event now through Monday, December 20th.

During this event, the Aiken County Animal Shelter hopes to find homes for many great pets. Unfortunately, the shelter is at full capacity.

As they work to find homes for these amazing animals, the adoption fees have been significantly reduced. For some animals, adoption fees will be completely waived.

The Aiken County Animal Shelter is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 11am-5pm.  They are open on Thursday from 11am-7pm; and Saturday from 11am-4:30pm.

Appointments are recommended.  You can get more information on Aiken County’s Empty The Shelters event by calling them at (803)642-1537 ext. 3.
