The New Beaufort County Animal Shelter has now opened its doors. The shelter currently houses twenty eight animals with a capacity of sixty. And it's easy to get paired up with a new furry friend. All pets require a $5.00 adoption fee plus a $30.00 spay or neuter deposit for cats and a $50.00 spay or neuter deposit for dogs. All adoptions come with a free visit to the vet as well. Through the first four days of operations, five pets have already been adopted.
