The Effingham County Humane Society is having a clear-the-shelter event.
With the possibility of impending severe weather in the area, it needs to clear the shelter as soon as possible.
If you have room for one more pet, stop by and adopt one free of charge with an approved application.
Numerous animals are slated to go to rescue groups and the Humane Society can't accept any more animals at this time. The shelter will not be staffed during the storm.
Depending on the track of the storm, the shelter will cease operations Friday afternoon.
People caught leaving an animal at the shelter can be charged with abandonment.
