We have orientations every 2nd Saturday from 10:30am-12:00pm and 4th Monday from 6:00p-7:30p. To be able to volunteer with us, we now ask that people do the orientations so we can give them a quick “dos and don’ts” of the shelter. This program is going to be head up by one of our animal caretakers, Danielle Parker.  People who are interested In volunteering can contact Danielle at pawsvolunteer@andersoncountysc.org or they can also contact Brittany Rambo at bvrambo@andersoncountysc.org

Pets of the Week


 

 

 



 

HI! I'm Rascal! Don't let my name fool you, I'm a sweet boy who loves attention. I will crawl up into your lap given the chance! I am so soft and have such a handsome face. Come by and meet me!


 

 

 

 

 

Rupert is a friendly and sweet boy. He does well playing with other dogs and loves to run around the dog park. After his exploring he likes to come over to you for a pet and some company

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi, my name is Buddy! You can tell by my photos that I'm a good looking dog. I tend to lean towards hanging out with the adults and not too much with children. Kids seem to bother me to some degree. Sorry kiddos! I love to go outside and run around and sniff the grounds. Take me to a shaded area and I will let you rub my back or pet me as long as you like. I'm also a selfish little fellow. I want to be the only dog in the house. I might make a big stink of it if you try to crowd my area. I would love for you to come by my temporary home and visit me. Even better...a permanent home at your place sounds great

 

 

 

 

Meet Duke - A smart boy who is able to provide you with all the love and protection you need. Looking for a loyal companion to join your home? He's right here! Duke is a laid back boy that just wants someone who understands his life style. Someone who likes to run would be perfect for Duke, but don't worry, Duke isn't one of those who likes to carry on a conversation while on a run! Duke is an attention hog and would prefer to be an only child. Come meet Duke today!

 

 

 

 

 

"Arizona Sun is an absolutely amazing dog! She spent two weeks with my family as a foster and she did fantastic! She is very well behaved with all dogs of every shape and size, she's super gentle and polite around children of all ages as well. She is potty trained, kennel trained, leash trained, and responds to basic commands: Sit, lay, shake, and "kennel". She will pace in front of, and look at the door to let you know she has to go outside. She loves riding in the car with the windows down, going to T-Ball games and just being a lazy couch potato. She is not fond of cats, so a home without any cats is highly preferred. Arizona Sun is truly a one of a kind dog that would be a great addition to any potential adopters family." Arizona's Foster Dad, Garrettari

Pets of The Week

Lou
Lou is a true king in a prince-sized package, though at times you just might mistake him for the court jester. He will charm you with his admiring eyes, always looking to you for cue on what to do next. Take King Lou out for a stroll (or a snuggle) and you just might want to offer him a castle of his own. http://petango.com/Adopt/Dog-Boxer-39518012

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kale
Look into my beautiful eyes! My name is Kale. I love tennis balls and any toy. I'm still deciding if I want to bring the ball back or not. Most of the time I bring it back and give you a kiss. I play well with others and I love long walks on the beach, playing soccer, and reading murder mysteries. I'm a great addition to any family. Come in and let me adopt you! http://petango.com/Adopt/Dog-Plott-Hound-40067116
