Charleston Animal Society

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA (Live 5 News) - Nearly 100 animals were seized from a home in Charleston County Tuesday afternoon.

Dogs, chickens, goats and at least one horse were taken from a home in the 6400 block of Halfway Creek Road, according to the Charleston County Sheriff's Office.

The animals are being cared for at Charleston Animal Society.

"They have skin disease, they have eye problems, they have external and internal parasites. We're here to help people. It doesn't have to get this bad, you can come, you can call, you can reach out to us, and we'll help you. You don't have to wait until these animals are in desperate shape and some of them possibly not even able to be saved," said Pearl Sutton, CAS Director of Operations.

Sutton said CAS has a food bank for animals and will help pet owners with spaying and neutering.

The sheriff's office has not made any arrests, but is investigating this as a case of animal neglect.
