When you pass away, a person of your choosing will contact the SPCA at 803-648-6863 to let us know your pet is being surrendered to the Albrecht Center and to arrange transport.
Once the pet(s) arrives, it will be placed with an administrative staff person who will notify the Veterinary Care Center. Vaccinations will be administered as a precaution since stress can compromise an animal’s immune system, making it more susceptible to illness. The pet(s) will receive a full veterinary exam and be placed in our temporary care until a permanent home, using your criteria, is found; unless you have arranged for temporary care that is different from that described.
There is no need to worry about emergency situations. Once the pet(s) is enrolled in the program, you will be given a dog tag, key chain and wallet card so that emergency personnel will be alerted to your wishes and can notify your designee or the SPCA immediately.
