Fiona was brought in by animal control as a stray. Wandered up to someone’s lawn on Lawhorn ave., Hartsville. She didn’t get along with their family Pet so had to surrender to AC. She is a very sweet girl who is in need of some love. She loves to be pet, and loved on. Walks well on a leash and didn’t seem to mind the dogs on the porch.   HW+; 41lbs; 8 yrs old; lab mix; 8/24.  Cats might be too enticing for me!

More about me Sept 4: Easy does it!  Fiona is a gem of a dog.  This polite, calm little lady is turning all the heads with her low riding stature, big brown "puppy eyes," and her soft, gentle personality.   A super leash walker, she really enjoyed meeting the young girls on our walk today and being close and snuggly to them surely made her tail wag!    Fiona did a nice job in tolerating a bouncy,  "in your face" dog but like many seniors, she does not want to be crawled all over and pestered to wrestle and play tag.  A more laid back pet companion would better suit her style and better match her senior status.   This old soul has the sweetest personality and is a real joy to be around.  Who will give her a second lease in life with a new full time pet position?  Let us hear from you today! 

G x 2 Pups- safe

Garrett- Pics from 9/21

New Pics Oct 12

Update Sept 21:  Sweet pups are feeling a bit overwhelmed.  They were fine being picked up and held.  Are not snippy/growly but simply more reserved.  Our young volunteers had no problem handling them for photo time. 

Garret was brought in by AC as a stray. Found on rilpey station Hartsville. Sibling to Gemma 2190
Garret is very sweet but hasn’t been handled much by people so he’s a little timid. He and Gemma would definitely benefit from a foster home.   16lbs; 10 wks old; lab mix; 9/4.  

Gemma was brought in as a stray by AC. found on ripley station Hartsville. Sibling to garret 2196
She’s very scared and hasn’t been handled by people at all. After she gets used to you she’s a sweet heart and likes to be petted!  10 wks old; 16lbs; 9/4; 16lbs

Garrett Teen Pup

He was brought in by a member of the community as a stray found on West 7 Pine St., Lamar   He's very playful and sweet!  24lbs; 10-12 wks old; lab mix; 8/20


Ginger was brought in by animal control as a stray found on Washington street in Hartsville. She immediately went to Anderson for her injuries from being hit by a car.  She is currently in foster and is HW negative.   Hound mix; 9/6; hw-; 5 yrs old; 40lbs


I'm a "tester dog."   I smiled when the folks who were testing dogs for compatibility with other dogs gave me this label as I did so wonderfully in meeting everyone.   I'll admit I'm super polite, calm and never pushy or in your face so dogs feel comfortable around me.   A mid-sized, sleek tan beauty, I am a gentle, sweet natured gal who loves going for slow paced walks and then quietly hanging by the side of my person.   I am not sure I would appreciate having kids climbing all over me and riding me like a horse (Well, does ANY dog really enjoy that behavior?) so slightly older kids who can respect me for the proud, dignified lady that I am will find me to be their perfect pet and I turn, would find them to be perfect humans!   Attentive to my person and not really caring to chase a tennis ball that might go flying right by me,  I think a poofy sofa, welcoming human lap and treats that I can nicely "sit" to would be my cup of tea.   Ask for me, Ginny today, won't you?Note: Ginny was brought in by AC as a stray. Found on country squire rd., darlington.  Ginny arrived and was very scared. That’s why her intake was delayed until now. Since then she has come out of her shell so much and has been a sweet heart! Walks well on a leash and loves to be petted!  Hw-; 43lbs; 1 yr old; lab mix; 9/10.  Extra note: Ginny became our female tester dog for the morning; she gets along extremely well with males and females; played well off leash with Rascal

Haley -safe

Haley was brought in as a stray by ac. Found on w. Lyde hartsville. She is an absolute sweetheart!  HW-; lab mix; 10/4; 1 yr old; 45lbs


Fun with me!  With me by your side, you can count on a good time!  A major extrovert,  I really, really love meeting new peeps and pups!  I am front and center to make sure I don't miss out on any of the fun and action.  On my walk today,  I met a lovely teen lab and 2 other adult dogs.   The volunteers commented that I can overanxious to meet another pet, but once I actually meet them, I move on and seek out other areas of new interest.  Very affectionate, bubbly and loving, I keep a steady pace on a leash and really enjoy going and doing.  If you are a person and or family who is "on the go," than I would love to be included in your plans.  I think we could have THE best time in keeping each other company while exploring new nooks and crannies!  Ask for me Jada, today!  Note: Jada was brought in by AC as a stray found on Syracuse St., Darlington. Jada is a very sweet dog. Walks well on a leash. Loves to be loved. A sweetheart.  HW-; 1 yr old; bull mix; 8/15; 43lbs


HW neg; 63lbs; ac stray; spaniel/lab mix; 10/16; 1 yr old

Jesse was found as a stray in Darlington. He was picked at the intersection of N Main St and Doneraile St.  He has been in foster with Debbie Anderson and she has been trying to help him gain weight. Many of his teeth are broken. He has badly clipped ears and a lot of hair loss. Despite this, he is very affectionate and sweet.  HW+; 45lbs; 2-3 yrs old; bull mix; 11/19/18

Foster update May 28:   I picked him up from out of the road, dodging traffic, on Halloween night.  He was in terrible shape when I found him.  He had a collar on but was so emaciated, his skin was red and irritated and he was so dirty.  We began working to put some weight back on him and work on his skin issues.  He still has a little hair loss on his back, but he is doing much better.  He is an older guy and you can tell that humans have not been kind to him in his life.  Despite all that, he is the sweetest and most loving little man.  I had his intake done at the shelter and brought him straight home with me into foster, so he's not spent any time at the shelter.  Great dog so deserving of a home of his own!


Jill was brought in as an owner surrender due to the owner no longer being able to care for her.  Jill is a very sweet, well balanced girl.  65lbs; hw-; 7 yrs old; 7/22; husky mix.  Good with male and female dogs. No cats for me please.

Jonah was brought in as a stray found on poplar st., Hartsville.  From community reports...seems to be a very nice boy. Seen behind the IGA in North Hartsville. Just showed up all of a sudden so folks suspected someone dropped him there. As he was traveling the neighborhood, he was interested in people riding their bikes and interested in cats but didn't bother anyone or anything. Got along with all the dogs he met.  Note: He is a very sweet loving boy. Seems to get along well with other dogs. Walks well on a leash.  HW-; 43lbs; 1 yr old; lab mix; 7/16

More about me Sept 21: Best of both worlds!  Looking for a chill companion pet?  Maybe a pet who loves to go and do and than wishes to sack out on the sofa with you?  Well, look no further as Jonah is available and at you service.  This smartly attired brindle boy did a great job in meeting an assortment of other dogs on our walk today.   Polite and considerate as he introduced himself to his new 4 legged friends, Jonah is a happy, softly affectionate fellow who is never needy or in your face.  He had a grand time playing fetch in one of our exercise pens and then set the stage for the others on our walk, as he plopped down in a huge shady spot and the others, one by one, joined in the peaceful, shady fun! Jonah is a fairly easy pet to manage and always has a broad, impish grin and slightly swiveling hips to welcome folks into his world. Come by today and see why we love this handsome boy!

More about me June 30: I'm slowly settling.  Things are still very scary/spooky for me but I have found a friend in Marcus, one of the staff who regularly cares for me.  I always know he's coming by to spend time with me when I hear the familiar "knock knock" sound on the roof of my igloo.  When I peek my head out,  I'll see his welcoming smile and then out I scoot from my igloo to say "hi" to him.  Just today we also headed out for a brief walk together.  I'm still super shy around folks I don't know but with Marcus's help,  daily I am making great strides.   Don't be shy yourself though...come on by and check in on me.  I need lots of folks to friend me to help me adjust and find my new pet job. 

Mama T

Mama T has a sad story to tell but still a joyful outlook. She came to the shelter when her owner was no longer able to care for her. She was pregnant with 7 puppies but sadly none of the 7 survived. Mama T hasn't let the loss of her puppies dim her sunny disposition though, she remains friendly and social with other dogs and especially loves getting love and attention from her person. She is a nice smaller size and packs a lot of love in a little package! She is a champion cuddler and walks wonderfully on a leash. Mama T has so much love to give to one very special person.  She is very affectionate and bonds with her person and thinks it is her job to be a protector.  Because of this instinct, we are recommending that she go into a one person home with someone who would appreciate a dog who wants to be their guardian and keep them safe. Mama T will make a wonderful companion for the right person. She is also crate trained and spent some time in a foster home where we discovered she was house trained as well. Mama T had her cat test and when she was walked by the cattery she didn't react to the kitties at all. This little love bug has waited for a forever home that will cherish her and treat her with love and the value every pet deserves. Let her spread a little of her love into your home, we think you'll never regret it!  Note: Mama T was brought in as an owner surrender. The owner could no longer take care of her.  HW+; 38lbs; 1-2 yrs old; lab mix; 8/27/18; Treated for hw's 11/18/18

I'm a leaner and a lover!  My name is Max and I really, really love being close to my person.  I specialize in making myself comfortable in your lap (Yes, I am pushing 60lbs but who says that is too large for a lap?),  leaning into human legs, giving you gentle hugs and plenty of broad grins and a wagging tail.  As awesome as I am with humans,  I think you'll agree I am equally lovely with other dogs.  I was paired up with a shy female on my walk today and I was considerate of her space and gave her time to check me out vs me lumbering on over and towering over her!  I'm a polite, well mannered fellow who is happy, playful and ready to spend my time with other dogs and kids.   Graced with a long dobie nose and endless legs,  while I have a larger physical frame,  I am easy enough to handle and folks find me very, very approachable.   Check out this affectionate, handsome fellow today, won't you?   Note: max was brought in by Ac as a stray. Found on millikin ave Hartsville.  He is an absolute sweetheart. Very loving, walks well on a leash and didn’t seem to mind the other dogs on the porch.  He’s saying “cheese” in his photos!  HW+; 58lbs; 3-4 yrs old; dobie mix; 8/27

Midnight Senior- Pull fees covered if pulled by a rescue with the intent to rehome this pair together

This is THE SWEETEST pair of dogs.  In walking into their kennel, they softly swarm you with swiveling hips, eager smiles and a desire to show you some love.  Wonderful loving/accepting energy from this pair.  They interview REALLY well.  Note: Surrendered to the shelter due to the owner passing away. Brought in by owners brother. Brought in with midnight 2526. Both are a bonded pair. They have been together for more than 10 years. 46lbs; HW+; 10/14; female

Meet Miles, a very loving boy who enjoys time spent with his person. His foster dad says that Miles enjoys nothing more than being petted and loved and getting attention and affection. He's very friendly with all people and would love to have a person or family of his very own.  Miles would sooner not share his person's affection with any other pets, he says he is all the dog you need! While Miles would sooner be your one and only, he is fine seeing other dogs outside the home while on a walk or an adventure. Miles is very smart and would no doubt excel in a training program that could help him with his leash skills. He's an energetic boy and would be a great fit for an active person or family or someone looking for a hiking or jogging partner who can keep up with them. Miles is ready and waiting for the family or person he can call his very own, he says let's go!   He's no couch potato, although when it comes time to snuggle he's right there for you. Check out Miles, a great guy with the biggest heart around.  Note:  Miles was brought in as an owner surrender. The owner said they could no longer care for him. He is very sweet and affectionate.  47lbs; 3-4 yrs old; bull mix; 12/20/18; treated for HW's Feb 2018.

Millie Pup

Wiggly Central!  Millie is just plain FUN!  This petite two tone little girl is bouncy, friendly, affectionate and will make you smile at the drop of a hat!  Front and center in her kennel and doing her best to show off her hula dancing skills, she had the best time nicely sitting and taking treats from an adult and than rolling around acting goofy on her back entertaining one of our youth volunteers.    An excellent leash walker,  Millie is inquisitive and ready go and do.  A tiny little dose of this cute little lady surely goes a very long way! Note: Millie was brought in as an owner surrender due to the owner being unable to care for her.  Millie is a very sweet girl that just wants to be loved.  hw-; 7 mos old; 29lbs; lab mix; 9/3.  Extra Note:  very playful teen pup; kissy and affectionate with her handler; gets along well with male and female dogs; will need a playmate who can match her playful energy

Mollie was brought in as a stray found At  southside school for Blanding Dr., hartsville.  She is a very sweet girl that just wants to be loved.  hw-; 49lbs; 1 yr old; lab mix; 9/26

Foster Update Early October: Mollie was a great girl while with us! She jumped right into my car when we found her (picture included). She rode just fine in the car. She never once used the bathroom in our home. She never got into things she shouldn't have or tried to chew on anything. She had to live in a home before! She whined or came directly to us to say she needed to go outside. She did her business and came right back in. She has a habit of tapping your leg as you walk lol. Don’t know why she does it but as I told her let's go outside to pee, and I would get up and start walking, she would tap me on my leg with her front paw lol. Almost like, hurry lol. She would do it to my husband too. We would just laugh at her as she kept us moving along lol. It was the funniest silliest sweetest thing ever. She is so adorable and good! She would make any family a great dog! She was wonderful with our dogs. She was very playful with our small dog (video included) and respectful of our older lab too, except when she stole his doggy bed at night lol (picture included). He was such a good boy to share his bed with her. She was so good in our home that we never crated her at night. She slept in the bedroom with us, either on the floor or on the dog bed. She listened very well. She came when called. We would ask her to sit and she would actually lay down lol. She was very much a people pleaser. She has this cute little bark too, not really a bark even, I don’t know what the little sound is, but it's adorable. There was literally nothing that we didn't like about her!
