Myrtle Beach Animal Shelter Launches Campaign for New Building


The Grand Strand Humane Society is seeking donations and community support as they search for a new home.

The old facility, located on Mr. Joe White Avenue in Myrtle Beach, was infested with rodents, forcing staff and animals to temporarily relocate to Tanger Outlets on US Highway 501. The group has now launched a fundraising campaign of 6 million dollars and asks for donations from the community.

According to a press release sent out by the Grand Strand Humane Society, the No-Kill Animal Shelter has seen a 25% increase in the number of animals in need of help, triggered by rapid growth in the area.

A committee was set up to run the campaign and some specific goals were set for the fundraising campaign. In particular, the company is looking for 6-10 acres of land to donate or buy in the town of Myrtle Beach, pledges of $ 100,000 or more for multiple years, and any other donation amount. All donations are tax deductible.

“Our goal is simple. We strive to rehabilitate and save the lives of every animal that enters our facility and to find them the loving home they deserve, ”the statement said.
