Rescue the Summer comes to Cypress Gardens this Saturday

Rescue the Summer comes to Cypress Gardens this Saturday

The First Annual Rescue the Summer Event will held at Cypress Gardens this Saturday from 11 to 4 pm. Come out and support the animals of Berkeley County.

All proceeds will go to the Operating Suite Renovation Project.

The Friends of Berkeley County Animal Center and Cypress Gardens have joined together for the first annual Rescue the Summer Event!

Berkeley Animal Center is the only public shelter in Berkeley County. Most of the lost or abandoned animals find their way here. Since the Doc Williams closure, their workload has practically doubled and they need our help! This is the kind of situation where it truly "takes a village".

The first step to any adoption is that every shelter pet must be spayed or neutered. To best meet this challenge, the Berkeley Animal Center needs an on-site operating room. This will allow the generous veterinarians of our community to come to the animals to provide this service efficiently, quickly and in a low stress environment. Every penny of proceeds from this event will benefit this cause!

Can't join us but still want to help? Early fundraising to meet our $15,000 goal has begun: DONATE HERE

Berkeley Animal Center will have furry adoptables available to meet throughout the day. There will be a variety of delicious food trucks available for purchasing lunch, snacks and drinks, as well as hand picked vendors and crafts to shop (Christmas will be here before you know it), and we can't forget games for the kids with prizes There will be live music and Sing with Aaron karaoke to entertain you as well!

Specialized rescue groups are a huge part of having a successful Berkeley Animal Center. We'll have a few here so you can learn all about the invaluable service they provide to our Berkeley County rescued animals. Participating in this years event is Eunoia Rescue, Valiant Animal Rescue, Bullies 2 the Rescue and other local groups.

If you have some energy left, of course, you won't want to miss out on all the beautifully revitalized attractions Cypress Gardens already has to offer - Swamp Boat Adventures, Butterfly House, Swamparium & Walking Trails through this miraculous watery landscape!
