1 min read

The Beaufort County Council and their partners with the Hilton Head Humane Association celebrated the grand opening and ribbon cutting of the new Beaufort County Animal Campus on Saturday, March 30 in Okatie.

The new campus includes animal intake areas, a spay and neuter clinic and an adoption center under one roof. The operation will help reduce overpopulation, as well as the euthanasia rates of homeless and unwanted animals in Beaufort County.

Beaufort County Animal Services seeks to promote responsible animal ownership, prevent the spread of diseases to other domestic animals and protect the public by seizing animals roaming throughout the county. It also provides shelter for stray, unwanted or homeless domestic animals and maintains a vigorous relocation program, including health screenings, vaccinations and mandatory spay or neutering.

The event was recorded by the The County Channel, which can be found on the county’s web site, bcgov.net, or on Comcast Channel 2 and Hargray Channels 9 and 113.

The campus, located at 10 Pritcher Point Road, is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
