CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The Charleston Animal Society is again at capacity and they need to find as many fur-ever homes as they can.

CAS has teamed up with Hendrick Charleston to hold a college basketball tournament-themed "Sweet $16" adoption drive this weekend.

"We are extremely grateful that so many people come to us when they are looking for a new pet," said CAS Chief Executive Officer Joe Elmore. "However, the truth is a large number of them come in seeking puppies or kittens, and so many sweet adult dogs get overlooked. As a result, we often end up overcrowded with these wonderful animals who wound up with us through no fault of their own."

All adult dogs will be available for only $16, and all animals come spayed or neutered, are fully vaccinated, microchipped, and are eligible for a free health exam from most veterinarians.

"The irony of it is, adult dogs are often the most appreciative of all the pets we adopt out, since they have been part of a family before and they are usually trained in a number of skills," Elmore said. "Just like everyone else, I find puppies and kittens adorable, but there is nothing more heartwarming as the look on the face of an adult dog who realizes they have just been given a second chance. It is feeling that all animal lovers should experience."

Animals eligible for fee-waived adoptions are also available at Charleston Animal Society's animal care campus at 2455 Remount Rd. in North Charleston.

Shelter hours are:
Friday, March 28, 12 p.m. -  6 p.m.
Saturday, March 29, 10 a.m. -  6 p.m.
Sunday March 30, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
