SC-CARES Animal Sanctuary, a refuge for abused, injured, or abandoned animals, will hold its Autumn, Acorns, and Animals Festival on October 24 from noon until 5 p.m. The festival will be a fundraiser for the sanctuary, as well as an opportunity for attendees to check out volunteer opportunities with the organization.
There will be hot dogs, drinks, homemade ice cream, and souvenirs for sale. Face painting, games, music, magic and a real Native American tee-pee and demonstrations will also be a part of the fun. Kids of all ages will enjoy and learn about the over 120 resident animals from wolves, horses, pigs, deer to tortoises from Africa, parrots, snakes, and even flying squirrels from Australia.
SC-CARES is also looking for volunteers to help with everything from animal care and enrichment activities, to building, to fund raising, and everything in-between.
