Donation waives Wednesday adoption fees at GSHS

Myrtle Beach, SC - MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The first 20 animals adopted from the Grand Strand Humane Society on Wednesday will have no adoption fee, thanks to a recent donation to the area shelter.

The waiver of adoption fees, according to shelter officials, has been funded through a donation from the Rogers' Girls. The adoption program has been extended to cats, dogs, kittens and puppies.

"We are so excited to be able to continue this adoption program," Sandy Brown, executive director, said. "The canine and feline Rogers' Girls family is truly a blessing to our shelters."

Brown said she hopes others will continue to donate to the program to fuel it throughout the summer.

Those who qualify as potential adopters are asked to meet with an adoption specialist to approve the adoption. An adoption at the Grand Strand Humane Society includes a spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, testing and a microchip.

Currently, the shelter is home to 200 cats and kittens, in addition to 130 dogs and puppies.
