Fall for a Feline this Season

Meow. Meooooow. That's usually the first sound I hear when stepping out of my car in the SPCA Albrecht Center's parking lot each morning. The fall mornings seem to make the cats more active than usual in the early hours of each day and they're enjoying the crisp, cool air in our facility's screened cat colonies. I like to think their morning caterwauling is their way of saying, "Hello! Welcome back! So happy to see you again!" But more likely, they're just hungry.

Hurricane Winds Bring Generosity

Last week, in anticipation of Hurricane Matthew, Charleston Animal Society worked to make room in their shelter as well as the Francis R. Willis SPCA in Dorchester County, to care for the displaced and injured pets that could be left in the storm's wake along their coastal communities. They did this by reaching out to their foster family network, of which over 100 families stepped up to help, and by partnering with other animal agencies to transport adoptable animals to areas further out of the storm's reach.
