Grand Strand Humane Society holding dog adoption events at the Market Common in Myrtle Beach

Looking for a dog?

The Grand Strand Humane Society, one of many area shelters experiencing overcrowding, is holding two dog adoption events Wednesday and Thursday at the Market Common.

The adoption events will take place alongside Music On The Streets concerts in the retail area of the former Myrtle Beach Air Force base.

Wednesday night’s concert is in the gazebos off Howard Avenue and Reed Street. Thursday’s concert and adoption will be at Valor Park. Dogs will be available for adoption from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. both days.

“We must get 70 to 75 animals adopted into loving homes very quickly”, said Sandy Brown, executive director of the Grand Strand Humane Society. “Our mission is always to save and find permanent homes for animals in need, but now it is a dire emergency. We will be downsizing our shelter population based on our budget.

“We must find permanent homes for the animals already in our care to create space for other animals in the near future. We do not want future unwanted, abandoned and abused animals to go to a kill shelter.”
