Berkeley County Animal Center is currently at capacity and is not accepting surrender pets from owners. All dogs and cats at the 502 Cypress Gardens Road facility are spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, and treated for fleas and ticks. Various diagnostic tests are run on the pets.

Cypress Gardens recently re-opened after being closed due to flooding damage back in 2015. Admission fees are $10 for adults, $6.50 for adults 65 and older and military personnel, and $5 for children from 6 to 17 years old.
