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

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.”
