New Animal Campus
This spring, seven years of planning became a reality for the new Beaufort County Animal Campus. On March 30, local stakeholders joined together for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Animal Campus in Okatie. The 10-acre complex is the largest public/private undertaking in the history of Beaufort County.

The 20,000-square-foot facility includes Beaufort County Animal Services and Hilton Head Humane Association’s spay/neuter clinic and their second adoption center. This combines all these services under one roo, instead of three separate locations throughout the county. The Animal Campus is centrally located in Beaufort County—just five minutes from the intersection of Highway’s 278 and 170.

The HHHA is a no-kill shelter and is committed to eliminating euthanasia of healthy and treatable animals. All shelter animals are spayed or neutered before adoption, and no-cost spay/neuters are performed at the shelter for eligible residents. To lower the number of animals relinquished, counseling and aid are available to help people keep their animals.
