  •    PAWS now has a staff member dedicated to our volunteers.  We had 49 new volunteers attend orientation and training in January.  We had 97 volunteers spend time at the shelter for a total of 309.5 hours.

 

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 a tpawsvolunteer@andersoncountysc.org or they can also contact Brittany Rambo at bvrambo@andersoncountysc.org

Dec. 5 Pets of the Week

Thorpe

Breed: Retriever, Labrador / Mix

Age: 1y 3m Gender: Male

Color: Tan / White

Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Size: Small 

“This boy walks politely on a leash and enjoys a casual stroll. He can be a little shy at first, but it doesn't take long for him to become more relaxed. His tail continuously wags when he meets other dogs. He is a calm and gentle natured guy that just likes to hang and chill. He is super snuggly and will climb right up into your lap and push his sweet muzzle right into your neck. Thorpe would probably enjoy the comfort of another dog friend.”

Dog

Marlon- Breed: Boxer / Mix

  • ·         Age: 3y 1m Gender: Male
  • ·         Color: White
  • ·         Spayed/Neutered: Yes
  • ·         Size: Medium

“Like most of our guests, Marlon can be enthusiastic at the prospect of getting his turn to romp through the play yard. Once he is outside, his leash manners improve and he is very playful. His tail wags continuously when he meets new friends to play with, both human and canine. If a dog buddy isn't so happy to meet him, he simply turns and walks away without incident. His favorite toy is a knotted rope and he enjoys a friendly game of tug, never concerning himself with who wins. Marlon can be fairly picky about his treats but has found hot dogs to be to his liking. He is a small little chap and is sure to leave plenty of room on the couch for others to join him!”


 

 

 CAT

Rascal- Breed: Domestic Shorthair / Mix

  • ·         Color: Blue / Black
  • ·         Spayed/Neutered: Yes
  • ·         Size: Small
  • ·         Declawed: Yes

 

“Rascal is a great cat! He is declawed so he would make a fantastic indoor pet. He gets a little nervous around small children, but loves to be petted and shown affection. He loves bouncing back and forth between his cat trees. This little fella would make a great addition to any feline loving home!”
