  • 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 or they can also contact Brittany Rambo at

Pets of the Week  


“Please meet Hunter. This boy is the ultimate love bug. He does not know a stranger dog or human alike. He is a happy boy that shows it by wiggling not only his nubby tail but his whole body. I have never seen this boy not happy and excited to face his days even in shelter life. He is as precious with children as he is with adults. Please come to Anderson County PAWS to meet this sweet wiggly boy.”








Meet Luigi, the clown of the shelter. Luigi loves life and lives to the best of his ability here but would love to find his forever family. He is as goofy as they get. He absolutely loves his time out playing with toys in play yard. He walks well on leash even for as big as he is. A meet and greet with his forever friend would be best because Luigi sometimes thinks a boogey man is sneaking up on him meeting a new dog. Once he finds out there is nothing scary he loves to play with a new friend. Luigi has a lot to talk to you about and will talk about whatever you want to. He adores people as much as he does his toys. Please come to Anderson County PAWS to meet this big fun boy.”




Pets of the Week 

Alayna is a 9-month-old American Shelter Dog! This breed is new to the mainstream media, but has been around since.. well since the very first animal shelter! Known for being loyal, loving and downright awesome, American Shelter Dogs are taking the world by storm, and Alayna is living up to the expectations of the breed! Alayna loves the company of people and other dogs. Toys are a must, as she loves to play and chew on noisy toys! Alayna enjoys sunbathing and catching rays with her furry and non-furry friends. Alayna is a character, she’s just waiting on her big break!












Meet Peter, a 3.5-year-old Shar Pei mix!.I have heard the saying, " a face only a mother could love", but dear Peter has a goofy personality that makes up for it. He is alert and happy in his kennel, take him out to the play yard for a real treat. Peter's absolute favorite is the soft plush toys he can grab between his floppy lips and throw up in the air. Peter also loves playing fetch though it has to be on his terms and it's hot here in the south! But, once he gets going he is a champion at playing fetch. He is more than happy to hang with his humans but seems to prefer the "beauty light" on himself making him more ideal as only boy.

Pet ID: 37464133

Age: 1y 1m Gender: Female

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Large


“Gracie was dropped off as a stray on Christmas day as a 7 month old puppy. She's now a big girl and has been moved to our big dog kennels where she awaits her forever family. She's been overlooked for so long, We hope someone will see what an amazing dog she is! Gracie would make a wonderful addition to any family. She was fostered in a home with three children (ages 1-9) and adores them. She enjoys treats and loves chew toys. She was well mannered and did very well at crate training and never soiled her crate. Gracie also got to play with the foster's dog and did wonderfully with her and they spent their days in an outside kennel playing and splashing in the kiddie pool. Gracie did well with the fosters three cats and just wanted to play with them. She went right to her crate in our son's room at night and never whined or barked. In the morning she went right out on a leash and went potty. She is very quiet and calm, not much of a barker at all, and doesn't pull much on the leash. We can't say enough good things about our sweet Gracie!”

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.
