Greenville animal shelters seek fosters, donations for evacuated dogs and cats

Greenville County Animal Care personnel examine a dog for a health certification so it can be sent to another part of the country as a part of the facility's efforts to make room for dogs and cats being evacuated because of Hurricane Florence.

Greenville County Animal Care and the Greenville Humane Society are taking in dogs and cats evacuated because of Hurricane Florence and are in need of supplies.

Greenville County Animal Care, which is designated as an emergency shelter during disasters, is looking for temporary foster homes for dogs that are recovering from illnesses so it can free up kennel space for evacuees. It is also preparing health certifications so some of the animals it has can be moved to other areas of the country to make space for evacuees, according to posts on Facebook.

GCAC needs donations of large and extra large plastic crates. Used crates are accepted and can be dropped off at 328 Furman Hall Rd., Greenville. The shelter also needs towels and blankets, dog food, kitty litter, Whiskers canned pate style cat food, and monetary donations.

Greenville Humane Society, which is also taking in animals from the lowcountry, is running a Hurricane Florence adoption special to clear space in its overcrowded facility.

It is accepting donations at and has a wish list on Amazon.
