Charleston Animal Society was proud to partner with Wings of Rescue June 25, 2015, in an effort that flew 37 Lowcountry dogs to brand new homes in the state of Washington. “This is an exciting new partnership for us, under our No Kill South Carolina initiative,” said Charleston Animal Society CEO Joe Elmore.
Charleston Animal Society coordinated the effort, which was the largest animal airlift ever conducted in the Carolinas. The dogs came from across South Carolina and North Carolina:
*Charleston Animal Society: 3 Dogs
*Columbia Animal Services in Columbia: 18 Dogs
*Francis R. Willis SPCA in Summerville, SC: 15 Dogs
*Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue in Asheville: 2 Dogs
