THE NEW COUNTY SHELTER PROJECT CONSIDERED
THE ANIMALS FIRST
In 2011, FOTAS and Aiken County formed a solid public/private partnership for the betterment of the Aiken County Animal Shelter. Through joint efforts, the new shelter opened on March 24, 2014, at 333 Wire Road, Aiken. The new shelter has adequate space, disease free waste management, and a healthy air system to meet the basic standards of responsible care for the stray and surrendered animals of Aiken County. It is a happy place to showcase the animals, enhance community involvement, and increase adoptions. Let’s show everyone that the residents of Aiken County understand what Mahatma Gandhi so eloquently said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it animals are treated."
