FREE DOG ADOPTIONS CONTINUE AT CHARLESTON ANIMAL SOCIETY TO ADDRESS CAPACITY EMERGENCY
Internet Star’s (@aguyandagolden) Video of Shelter Dog Mika Tops 250,000 Views!
TUESDAY | JUNE 6 | NORTH CHARLESTON — Charleston Animal Society continues its emergency relief effort with FREE DOG ADOPTIONS this week as the shelter remains overcrowded with homeless dogs.
Internet sensations Johnathan Lower and his dog Teddy stepped in to help with their @aguyandagolden “Shelter Saturday” video that highlights homeless dogs looking for families. The video they created featured Mika, a shelter dog at Charleston Aniimal Society, was viewed more than a quarter of a million times by Johnathan and Teddy’s fans on Tik Tok, Instagram and YouTube leading to the dog’s adoption.
Mika’s special day included a pup cup, a visit to PetSmart for toys, a collar and a custom nametag. He also went to Taco Boy for a chicken taco that he devoured. Within hours of posting Mika’s story, this mellow, playful 7-year-old was adopted into a new, loving home.
“As happy I was about Mika’s adoption, I couldn’t stop wondering about the other 70 dogs at the shelter who are still waiting for their second chance,” Johnathan said. “The shelter is struggling to find every one of these dogs a home, each one of them as sweet as Mika. We hope you will visit Charleston Animal Society this week and find a new buddy!” SEE PHOTOS HERE
There is no cost to adopt any available dog through the end of the week. All dogs have been examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered – about a $800 value in services.
Charleston Animal Society is located at 2455 Remount Road in North Charleston. The shelter is open for adoptions from 10am to 5pm on weekends and noon to 5pm on weekdays. Adoptable animals can be viewed online at CharlestonAnimalSociety.org/Adopt.
