P.A.W.S. Takes in 47 Cats, 12 Dogs after House Fire

The Anderson County Animal Shelter took in 59 animals following a house fire at a residence off Dickens Avenue in Anderson on Wednesday.

The shelter, known as P.A.W.S., (Pets Are Worth Saving) took in 47 cats and 12 dogs from the home, some of which were injured. The average cost of an animal taken into the shelter is $269, but the costs associated with injured animals are often higher. 

P.A.W.S. opens at noon today, and those who have been considering adoption of a dog or cat are encouraged to visit to take home a pet to help make space for the new animals.
