AIKEN, S.C. (WJBF) – The Aiken County Animal Shelter celebrated its third anniversary on Saturday.

Along with Friends Of The Animal Shelter (FOTAS), the shelter held its annual “Hot Diggity Dog Day” at its facility on Wire Road in Aiken. The event included refreshments, activities for all ages and adoption specials.

While the event itself is over, the shelter will continue to offer half-price adoption specials through the end of the month. Shelter Manager Bobby Arthurs says the shelter takes in more animals during the heat of the summer months than any other time of the year.

Dogs and puppies will be available for $35, cats and kittens for $10. Each adoption includes spaying or neutering, microchipping and shots. Each dog available for adoption has already received a complimentary flea treatment.
