Dog generic

Greenville, SC (FOX Carolina) - Following the July 4 holiday, Greenville County Animal Care says they've had more dogs than ever before show up to the shelter. 

Officials say 85 dogs have arrived post July 4 celebrations and for the first time since March, the shelter is full. 

The shelter wants owners to know their pets, possibly scared and lost during the July 4 holiday, are safe and waiting to be picked up. 

For the next two weeks, Animal Care will waive the fees for pick-up/return to owner, provide an ID tag, and offer free micro-chipping in case they are separated again.
