Greenville County Animal Care Services, the high-kill shelter located in upstate South Carolina, took in more than 150 dogs and cats on Monday. Fox Carolina News reported the story June 2.

Monday set a record high for "throw your pet away day at the high-intake shelter." Now the staff is scrambling to find homes, at least temporary ones, for as many cats and dogs as possible. More than 100 kittens and cats and close to 50 dogs were turned in today.

GCACS is pleading for fosters, rescues, sponsors adopters and volunteers to help.

The shelter is also in need of canned cat and dog food.

Spokesperson Susan Bufano said the kitten special they're having has contributed to the number of litters surrendered to the shelter. This Examiner article explains the great package being offered in their foster to adopt program.

The shelter is also having a free spay/neuter special for zip code 29609. Peope on government assistance can have their cats spayed or neutered for $15, and gs for $30.

This is not a puppy mill situation. A lot of people surrender their pets to the shelter, either unaware or not believing their once loved pet will be killed for lack of space. Owner surrendered pets are not subject to a holding period, and may be killed at any time.

Shelter information is listed below. Be sure to go by the shelter if you can help.
