South Carolina's First Ever Statewide Pet Adoption Event Starts Friday

History is being made in animal welfare across South Carolina through Sunday. That's because Pick Me! SC takes place this weekend at animal shelters and rescues throughout the state. Sponsored by the Petco Foundation and organized by No Kill South Carolina (NKSC) – the goal is to save 1,500 lives through adoptions in just one weekend. Most shelters are offering “no-fee” or “low-fee” adoptions as part of this lifesaving event.

In addition to the shelters and rescues, ten Petco stores across the state will also open their doors to provide additional venues for people to come adopt.

Pick Me! SC truly is a statewide event, with shelter and rescues participating from the mountains of the Upstate to the beaches of the Lowcountry. Whether you live in the Upstate, the Pee Dee, the Midlands, or the Lowcountry, wonderful animals will be available for adoptions and incredible deals are being offered.

If you are adopting, please remember to bring a leash for dogs or a carrier for cats. Some of the locations may have these items for sale, but be sure to check in advance.
