Animal Shelters Hope to Make South Carolina a No-Kill State by 2024

Several humane societies, and other shelters are on board with hopes to hit the 2024 goal.

Animal shelters across the Palmetto State are hoping to make South Carolina a completely no-kill state by 2024. Representatives from shelters gathered this week for a town hall to discuss the possibility. A no-kill shelter is classified as that when it saves at least 90% of their dog and cat population. The non-profit organization, “No-Kill South Carolina” was formed years ago and the group’s director says between 2015 and 2020, they’ve saved over half a million animal lives in the state.
