Adopting a pet from the Greenville Animal Shelter is easy
The difference between No-Kill and Open Admissions shelters can be confusing to many people. The term "No-Kill" often eases the mind and sounds more positive to caring individuals, whereas, "Open Admissions" is something vague and not easily understood. First and foremost, the caring and dedicated staff that works at Open Admissions Shelters never wants to have to put any animals to sleep, often going above and beyond to explore all possible avenues to get an animal adopted. Adopting pets out is one of the most important and rewarding responsibilities we have at the Pet Adoption Center. It is the reason that our staff loves their jobs. We feel that all animals deserve a happy, safe and forever home - regardless of where they came from or how they got to us. However, the reality is that this is often not a choice, but a decision that must be made in order to protect the animal or the public.
