Overcrowded Chesterfield County animal shelter gets 3 weeks for adoptions before pets euthanized

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, S.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE)— The Chesterfield County Council voted for a three-week adoption turnaround for dogs and cats at the county shelter. After three weeks shelter employees are required to euthanize the pets. 

This ordinance isn’t new to the shelter though, it has been around since The previous director of the shelter did not comply with the ordinance and refused to euthanize the animals. 

The county council held a meeting Wednesday morning and public comment was heated.

“I can only say that if I were involved in county government I would resign my position before playing politics at the expense of the lives of living breathing beings that desperately needed help.”

The Chair of the Animal Services Committee says they are not putting a death sentence on these animals, the county is also adding funding and services to get them forever families. 

“You have to do things in order to progress, and I’m sorry you can’t save them all, but we will do everything in our power to save as many of them as we can,” said Curtis, the Chair of the Animal Services Committee.

Curtis said the shelter will be adding extra hours and will also allow Pitt bulls to be adopted. 

“In the long run it’s not going to be their decision anyway, it’s going to be the vet&#;s decision on when an animal is euthanized.”

Why Should You Adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

&#;We are trying to make positive changes and if you&#;re involved just a little, you will see every bit of the effort being made! And we welcome every suggestion anyone has that may make a difference for the better of Chesterfield Animal Shelter!&#; - Chesterfield Animal Services

CHESTERFIELD, SC — Chesterfield Animal Services is in need of rescues for six dogs at their shelter which are set to be euthanized on October Ginger, Sky, Vegas, Sosa, Pearl, and Cruella are on the list, meaning their time is almost up.

This list comes as a result of a new policy started in July of when the officials voted to turn Chesterfield Animal Services into a day kill shelter when previously the shelter used euthanization rarely and partnered with No Kill South Carolina. The policy was passed amidst controversy and online petitions to stop euthanasia.

“This means that an animal can be housed at our shelter for 21 days before decisions on euthanasia have to be made,” read a post on Chesterfield Animal Services’ Facebook.

This does not mean that on day 21 the animal in question will definitely be euthanized, but a decision has to be made. They are an open-intake shelter where no animal is turned away, creating full capacity with animals crated wherever the shelter can find room &#; from hallways to break rooms. The shelter has also determined other short-term intake solutions like stopping intakes until more animals are able to leave to other rescues taking them in. But Chesterfield Animal Services is still low on space and resources. They have done what they can to place animals, socialize and medicate them, network with rescues, and find animals homes. But when animals are unable to be placed, the euthanasia decision has to be made.

Douglas Curtis, Chair of the Animal Services Committee, said they’re adding funding and services to get the animals adopted, not just implementing a death sentence, when he spoke to Fox 46 Charlotte about the policy back in June

“You have to do things in order to progress, and I’m sorry you can’t save them all, but we will do everything in our power to save as many as we can,” he said.

Most of the dogs on the list have been in the shelter for over four months. These dogs have been observed showing aggression or dominant behavior, and been unable to stay in homes with other pets or people unfamiliar with their temperament. Many of these dogs have also been victims of trauma and abuse or can be skittish in new environments. They are also older dogs and breeds that families are less likely to adopt. At this time, Chesterfield Animal Services needs rescuers who can provide proper obedience training and socialization before the dogs can be placed with their forever families. It is the best solution for the dogs and their adopters to have them go to rescues where there are the proper resources.

Any help from rescues that could take the six dogs in would be greatly appreciated. Any help at all can stop sweet dogs Ginger, Sky, Vegas, Sosa, Pearl, and Cruella from being euthanized. To help or take in, please reach out to Chesterfield Animal Services at or visit them at Goodale Road.
