The Beaufort County Animal Shelter has been selected by the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) to participate in The Carroll Petrie Foundation Dog Rescue Project, a new $1 million initiative funding for treatments and services for shelter dogs and puppies. As part of the rescue project, canines from Beaufort County are flown and driven to animal shelters throughout the U.S. The grant awards the county shelter $50 per relocated canine. This money in turn pays for fuel, health certificates, and any medical needs prior to transport. For animals relocated in September, the county shelter was awarded more than $6,000.
