Pet of the Week: Marge

7 year old Shepherd Mix

Hey! I'm Marge. I am one of Anderson County PAWS longest residents. I may seem a bit aloof at first, but if you give me a chance to get used to you, you'll find I'm quite a cuddle-bug! I'm pretty calm most of the time, but I do enjoy getting out of my kennel and into the sunshine! I usually get along with other doggies, but I can be a bit bossy, so it might be a good idea to let me and your best friend meet first. I'm really just a sweet girl just looking for a for someone to give me a chance and a comfy bed to rest on. Why don't you come by and give me a look? I am spayed and heartworm negative. My adoption fee has been sponsored.


Pets of the Week


My name is Scooby. You may see me looking out my kennel door at you looking hopeful. I was adopted and in a home for a long time but was brought back through no fault of my own. I am House trained!! I'm gentle on the leash and sweet and mellow. I'm almost a senior now and this isn't where I pictured spending my golden years. I would love a forever home to call my own where I can spend my time hanging out with the people I love and just relaxing. Come down and meet me, take me for a walk!





I love belly rubs. Sleeping is the best thing in the world next to my chew toys. I prefer to be an only child, I tolerate neutered male dogs but not a big fan of Females. I do not like using the potty in my house, so please take me for walks. I have short legs but a HUGE heart.








Mater there. My name's mater &...well...I'm kinda shy. I may talk a big game, but it may take a while to get used to you if you step into my cage. Just let me make the first move, okay? But if you give me a chance, I may just be your best friend one day!









Please meet Charcoal. She is a sweet little ball of energy. She enjoys being with her person and in their lap. She gives the best hugs. When outside Charcoal can not get enough of zooming away and zooming as fast as she can back to you. She is a well behaved girl in her kennel watching her days pass by. She is choosy about who her dog friends are so a meet and greet before bringing home would be best. Please come to Anderson County PAWS to meet this fun sweet girl with the piercing eyes. Charcoal said "little kids make me nervous so I'd prefer a home with either older children or adults."




Are you the person for me? Hi my name is Tara and I really am a sweet girl. I came in with my 2 siblings and they've all found homes but I'm still waiting for my forever home. I had a rough start at life and arrived at PAWS as a 8 month old puppy. I had an accident while here and broke my leg and it was a bad break that didn't heal well so I had to have that leg amputated. Don't be deterred though because I get around absolutely fine now! I need someone who's kind and patient and who'll show me the world isn't as scary as I think it is. I think I like other dogs too but I'd do a meet and greet with any potential doggies just to be sure. Won't you come down to PAWS and meet me?


Pet of the Week - Bull

This is Bull
3.5 Years Old
Mixed Breed

“Hey there, I’m Bull! I am currently Anderson County PAWS longest resident! I have been patiently waiting for 200 days for a family to come choose me!

I love getting the zoomies and playing with other the dogs at the shelter dog park. When I’m done playing with my buddies I like to hang out and relax.

I would make a great best friend and I’m not quite sure why I’ve been overlooked for so long! I am friendly with male and female dogs, I LOVE people, and I am heartworm negative and already neutered! My adoption fee is sponsored as well! Please stop by and meet me today!”

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."
