Officials at the animal shelter say they’ve been flooded with strays and surrendered animals over the last two weeks, including more than 150 this week alone) resulting in the shelter once again reaching full capacity just a few weeks after a successful “Clear The Shelter” event.

“We have so many wonderful dogs and cats at the shelter that need homes right now,” said Jennifer Miller, President of Friends Of The Animal Shelter. “Please come by ifi you are thinking about adding a furry companion to your life.”

The event will also feature refreshments and optional photo opportunities for adopters and their new pets.

The “Caturday” event will take place Saturday, August 27th, from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Aiken County Animal Shelter on Wire Road in Aiken.
