HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - The Horry County Animal Care Center is closed to the public until at least Monday as all staff are currently working on an animal investigation with the Horry County Police Department.

During the closure, the HCACC will not be able to conduct adoptions, nor accept owner surrenders or stray intakes.

Staff will continue to care for all animals on-site for the duration of the closure.

Rescues may continue on a case-by-case basis as usual—rescue partners should reach out to the Rescue Coordinator at rescue@horrycounty.org.
