HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The community heard the call for help when the Horry County Animal Care Center announced Tuesday that it was overcapacity.

The HCACC announced that 55 animals found their forever homes on Wednesday.

It was revealed earlier this week that the animal care center was overcapacity after taking in more than 130 animals in five days due to two animal investigations.

He left no space at HCACC and because of this he had to rent space at Tamrock Kennels to house animals for adoption.

The HCACC issued a call to the community for animal lovers to adopt or foster their four-legged friends, and by Wednesday morning people were ready to adopt.

“It’s amazing. We have another lab at home. We lost our lab in February this year, so having another lab at home is just great. Give it a chance in a house that love it, it’s fantastic,” said Chad Michael, who brought home a new furry friend.
