Greenville County Animal Care shelter has a lot to celebrate Thursday night as almost all of the animals were rescued from a super urgent list and 70 more were adopted from the shelter.
Amber Zuidema heard the reports that dozens of dogs were going to be put down because the shelter was so over capacity.
She raced over to the shelter with her daughters to do her part.
"I can't help all of them but if I help one and other people help one than it makes a difference," Zuidema said.
The staff at the shelter were overwhelmed with the outpouring of support and generosity. They hope it keeps up.
"We could be at 90 percent live release, which essentially is a no kill community and that's what we're hoping to be one day," Susan Bufano, community relations coordinator for Animal Care, said.
Sarah and Walt Dotherow lost their last dog not too long ago, they were going to wait to replace him until they saw the need at the shelter.
"It makes me very sad, I've always loved animals and I wish human beings were more responsible," Dotherow said.
She's talking about the lack of spaying and neutering going on.
Shelter staff agrees that spaying and neutering is the solution and hope people take advantage of their low cost program.
