The amount of unwanted pets in York County alone should be enough of an answer. Around 900 unwanted animals were dropped off at the York County Animal Shelter in June of 2011. Studies also show your pets behavior is more pleasant once they are fixed!
We, Friends of York County Animal Shelters, are the volunteers of the York County Animal Shelter. We are here to assist the shelter with their adoptable animals and inform the public of the importance of spaying/neutering your pets!
WE do not! The shelter does however euthanize animals due to the enormous amount of drop offs. Other shelters such as the Humane Society can turn away animals where the York County Animal Shelter cannot turn away unwanted pets!
We, FYCAS, do not set this fee and neither does the shelter. The county has set this fee. We believe that if you cannot afford this fee then you will not be able to afford to be a responsible pet owner. Animals are a commitment and will require expensive vet visits- even if they are healthy!
The shelter's hours go from 9:00am to 5:pm Monday - Friday and 9:30am to 12:30pm on Saturdays.
The Shelter is located at 713 Justice Blvd, York, SC 29745.
Requirements: You must be at least 18 years old and have a passion for helping worthy cats and dogs! Even if you are not capable of walking dogs or getting down to the shelter to play with the cats, we will find a way for you to help!
