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

What's up, I'm Chisel, and I'm 4 years old (but I don't look a day over 2). I spend most of my time working out, which you can totally tell by looking at me! I'm a fun-loving guy, ready to jump in and do whatever you want to do, as long as what you want to do is one of these things: Logging some miles on the old FitBit and then posting about it 

Traveling, with the wind in my hair (but not too much wind because: my hair) 

Taking pictures that highlight my pecs *winks*

Hiking, but I mostly do it for the check-ins

Chillin at home, binge-watching whatever's on Prime.

I'm also an excellent kisser. You can ask around.

Hickory (Pet ID: 36414672)

Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix

Age: 3y 7m Gender: Male

Color: Chocolate / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large

 

“Run like they left the gate open...that's what everyone said...so, I DID. Boy, was that the wrong move! Once I stopped frolicking in freedom, I didn't know where I was anymore. A nice man brought me to this safe place. I guess I must have run a loooong way, because my Dad didn't find me. I've been kinda sad about that. The folks here are nice and all, but I miss my soft beds, the tasty treats from the table and walks through the neighborhood. Do you think you can help me find these things again?”

Pets of the Week

Porsha (Pet ID: 16019289)

Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull / Mix

Age: 6y 11m Gender: Female

Color: Brown / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large

 

“Hello, friends! My name is Porsha and I’m a laid-back girl, about 6 years old. I’m willing to look past your imperfections because I need someone to see past mine.

I’ve been described as sweet, laid back, and loving. I know a lot of dogs that want to run all day, but my happy place is sunbathing on a pillow. I still love to play and run, but cuddles are more my speed. Because my front arm doesn’t function properly, some folks see me as damaged, but they don’t really see Me. Give me a chance to prove to you that – even on three legs – I can jump right into your heart.”

 

 

Petey (Pet ID: 37281120)

Breed: Saint Bernard / Mix

Age: 7y 4m Gender: Male

Color: White / Red

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large

 

“Hey guys, I'm Petey, and I equally love food and being petted. See, we've got something in common already. I absolutely LOVE: Learning new tricks (cuz I gets treeeeeats!), Playing with my doggo friends, Being petted (I see that as a win-win for both of us, because my fur is REALLY soft) I can be a big doof and the life of the party, but I can also be chill, especially if there's ear scratching involved. I will never turn down a treat, and that makes me a fast learner. I would get along great with a doggie roommate! Come check me out (can you like pick up some lunch on your way here?).”
