Alyssa was an owner surrender because they are moving. She was brought in with Spanky and Willis. she is friendly and submissive. she walks well on a leash and is HW Negative. 4 yrs old; pointer mix; 34lbs; 9/15

Angelica- Teen

Foster update 8/24: Doing well among our dogs. She is shy and would need a home with a more confident dog to make her feel most comfortable and continue to learn all the ropes. She loves to play with toys. She is so sweet and needs to settle in with a family to grow into her own now. 5/24; shep mix; 10 wks old; 27lbs


Archer was brought in as a stray from Darlington. He has a few old injuries that have healed and his hip/elbow pops when you move it. I do believe he was HBC several months before arriving to us. 40lbs; hw-; 8/24; 1 yr old; hound.

Sept 24 Update: Who had the most fun today in doggy play group? Archer will be the first to say, “ME!” And yes he did. He ran with all of his new dog friends, met as many people as he could as he wiggled up to them with his big beautiful eyes and, oh yes, the pools! He was in and out of those pools, having the time of his life. Nobody would ever guess that he had old injuries from a suspected hit from a car. Precious Archer has healed from shoulder, leg and pelvis injuries in his short year of life, and has the best attitude to show for it. Nothing is going to get this boy down. Wouldn’t it be great for him to find his very own home with maybe a doggy friend and loving family to show him that life was about to get way better. I bet he will end up rescuing his people even more than they rescue him.

More about Sept 24 Playdate: Archer is a hoot! He was fun to watch in the play area.

Atticus was brought in with Jada and Hazelnut. He is sweet and will lay down when approached. Atticus is a typical pup, he got along well with other dogs in play groups. 7/1; stray; lab mix; 5 mos old; 32lbs

Atticus: He arrived as a stray in early July, aged at 5 months and 32 lbs, heart worm negative lab mix. Atticus is a typical pup, he got along well with other dogs in play groups. Never meeting a stranger, he greets other dogs politely. Atticus dials down his energy for calmer dogs, and plays politely with more playful dogs. Nice med size, beautiful coat, hoping someone will see how awesome he is!

1 yr old; stray; lab mix; 9/19; 35lbs. Austin is a sweetheart and goofy boy. He was found as a stray. He does ok on the leash, but could benefit with some training. He seems to be a happy and playful boy who is eager to make friends.

Autumn- Teen

Doberman mix; 45.6 lbs; 10 months ;HW Negative; 7/25; stray. This girl is a hoot! She does not meet a stranger; canine or human. She came into the area with Smudge, saw a toy immediately picked it up and headed towards the gate. Kathy was there to take the toy. LOL After she realized that the ball was not available she saw a "large shake can" on the fence and brought it down to play with. She's quick! Definitely a labby personality: happy, curious, doesn't meet a stranger. This is one smart girl!! TA

More about me: Autumn is absolutely wonderful with other dogs, puppies, cats, children. She did take a little while to get used to housebreaking and crate training, but she finally got it! She does not bark a lot. Like a young Lab, she is high energy and loves a canine playmate. Availability of water is a plus! She has recently learned to climb my 4 foot chain link fence, but she does come when called. Also if she jumps the fence, it's not to chase anything. It's just to see what's on the other side. She comes to our front door and waits. She is not a pure Lab, but she has the glossy chocolate coat and the personality of a young Lab.

8/2; bullly mix; 35lbs; HW-; 1 yr old; O/S

Foster update Sept 7: We got to love Becca for 2 months and fostered to adopt her. We ended up adopting her as she got along great with our family and she was best friends with our other rescue dog who we had for 4 years. We have 2 small children 2 and 1. They loved Becca and loved cuddling with her. She did playfully nip at my son twice towards the face and we felt like she would be perfect with older children or someone who does not have children. She loves to play and when she plays she nips but NOT in an aggressive way. She truly is an angel on earth and I wish we could have kept her as she will be someone’s best best friend.

Betsy- Pup

Whew, It's been a long time coming. Brandon has been here since 11/17/21 but with the help of /the Wendy's we were able to complete his intake today. Wendy M is his person.. /Brandon trusts her. I can't even get a leash on him yet!! Brandon is a shy guy but is willing to accept love and affection from humans as long as you take it slow and you aren't forceful. He walked ALL the way to the med room with them on a leash!!! I am so happy we were finally able to get this done!! 1/25/22 posted; shepard mix; 2 yrs old; 53lbs; stray; HW+

Update Feb 1: Today we got Brandon out for some fun in the sun. This brave boy did not disappoint and amazingly he walked the whole way to our front play yard. It's still very much stop and go on the leash for Brandon but he did it! Once in the front play yard, he did plenty of darting around and trying his best to avoid us, but after 3 hrs, he started to get the hang of things and made us proud. No doubt Brandon is a shy, insecure fellow but he proved today that he's willing to put in a good effort to take strides towards pet greatness. Note: Brandon seemed a bit selective with his new doggy friends. Those that were less interested in him, he seemed to accept with no issue.

More about me Feb 8: Brandon proved to us once again that he's eager to leave shelter life behind and ready to begin his new, full time pet position. Doing a great job in walking out to the front field, when let loose, he was immediately running around, exploring, going and doing. He was clearly having a good time and proud of himself in being able to run around. His confidence has clearly grown and we saw a lot of waggy tail, an abundance of smiles and much more relaxed body language. He's still shy/reserved around humans but much more open to making new human friends. His overall level of insecurity is still evident in meeting new dogs. With some dogs, he's happy to share his space and others, he'll let out a low growl of warning. He's a work in progress but certainly heading in the right direction to be the best pet he can be.

March 13 Update: He is getting comfortable having other dogs around, he liked watching Tanner and London run and play. He would give them gentle corrections if they ran into him. He gets more confidence every time he is out.

May 6: Brandon is learning! Everyday Brandon takes another small step. Having Brandon come out for play groups while in foster, I believe is important for his success. Having his friend, Farrah, with him definitely helped him. Brandon walks very well on a leash and is good at loading into a car.

Brooklyn was brought in today from Timmonsville after being found several days ago as a stray. She was posted on facebook and no one claimed her. She did very well for her intake. She hates the Leash and completely freaked out walking on the yard with all of the dogs barking. She was microchipped during intake. Brooklyn is HW:Negative. no breed listed; 1 yr old; 37lbs. Stray hold til 10/8. Reportedly good with other dogs and kids.


Buddy is everything you love about a dog in need that gets rescued from the side of the road. He is so loving and so grateful. He couldn't be sweeter or more appreciative of every bit of help and attention he receives. He is just a great guy! He has doggie friends at his foster home and plays well with all sizes. He is also good with kids. He enjoys snuggling by your side, lap cuddles, head scratches and belly rubs. He gives great kisses and hugs. Buddy's name suits him just perfectly, as we hope he can now become someone's faithful fur buddy forever. Would you like to meet him? Note: High HW positive. 54lbs; 3 yrs old; 10/7/21; stray.

Camilla was an owner surrender with Carmen. "Too many dogs." She is timid and was very skeptical of Sam and i during intake. We couldn’t not get any blood for a HW test. She doesn’t not walk on a leash and does not like to be picked up. 8/29; 25lbs; terrier

Carmella- Sponsored for pull fees

2/24; 49lbs; 4 yrs old; lab mix. This sweet lady was brought in as a stray. She is sweet and friendly. She got along with Apollo in the office fine. She did excellent during intake and walked fairly well on the leash. She is HW:Negative!!! TA

Update April 2: She was very happy to be out in the sun and grass. She met other dogs fine. She was more interested in having some people time.

More about me April 19: It's funner to have CARMELLA by your side. No doubt, this friendly, caramel colored/coated girl is a smile maker and makes sure that you're treated like her Queen Bee. Carmella enjoyed her photo fun in the sun as she explored around making sure to get her big, blocky head in as many human laps as possible. She did a nice job in meeting both male and female dogs, but as a more confident lady, seemed to prefer dogs who were more chill and understood her desire to simply hang out with her and not challenge her in any way. Carmella has had at least one litter (if not more) and in her prior life, someone has clearly taken the time to love and nurture her to be the devoted, affectionate dog that she is today. If having a sturdy, solid, steady kisser and hugger of a dog sounds like your new best friend, we urge you to please ask about pretty lady Carmella today.

Foster Update Feb 27: It has been a joy to foster Cricket and watch her personality blossom when she was removed from the shelter environment. Foster care was the first Cricket was treated with love and kindness. She is a sweetheart and has touched my heart! Cricket needs to adjust to change on her own schedule. For example, when she came into foster care, she would sleep in the sun room (back of the house) then after a few days she slept in the kitchen (beside the sunroom), then to the living room where the doggie bed is located, then to the sofa, then she hit the jackpot and found Mom’s bed. She likes her soft toys, dental bones but her stuffed bones are the best! Looking out the front storm door watching people and their dogs go by is enjoyable for her. If it is a sunny day, she will fall asleep in the sun. Also, she likes to run around the back yard; so, a fenced in yard is a necessity. Going for walks are the best and normally walks by her foster Moms side. However, another dog can distract her but she is still learning.

Cricket has a gentle personality and is very smart and a quick learner. She knows basic commands such as: sit, come, stay, crate and let’s go pee. Many of the skills were learned while in foster care. She was afraid of the car and now quickly jumps in the car and rides well in the car. She was crate trained in a few days and enjoys her crate. In the morning she go to her crate and waits to be fed (with the tail a wagging). She enjoys her food and treats. Her foster care environment does not have other animals; however, she seems to like other dogs that are more laid back then the aggressive type of dogs. I think she would do well in a home with another dog or older kids to play with. She has energy that she needs to release. When at the vets, there was a cat running around the office that didn’t seem to bother her. She has some cute behaviors, such as holding up her one paw (usually the right) when she is about to get a treat. She has great flexibilty in her hips and sometimes will lay with all four legs stretched out.

When she seems to get anxious, she will carry my shoes or socks around the house. She does not chew them or destroy them, she just carries them around. When I go away and leave her alone (not crated), I will find my shoes/slippers some place in the house when I return. With time in foster care this behavior has become less and less. If you have it in your heart, Cricket is in need a family that will make her part of their family, and treat her with love and kindness. In turn, she will give you a life of love and loyalty.

Foster Update April 1: The staff at the doggy daycare said Cricket did amazing with every dog. Had a ball playing. Completely house trained, loves riding in the car, and walking on the leash.

Foster Update May 22: Cricket is a sweetheart and lovebug. She is a great dog that is very smart and knows basic commands. She loves to go to doggie daycare and play with other dogs her size. She will do best with an active family that has another dog she can play with. She would probably enjoy playing with older kids too. She may be too energetic for small kids. Cricket likes it outside whether it’s going for a walk, running in the back yard or just sunning herself in the backyard. A fenced in backyard is required. She rides well in the car and enjoys going for car rides. Cricket has a gentle personality and is a great dog. When she feels safe, her personality comes out. She needs to be introduced to other dogs slowly until she feels comfortable. However, this is improving with doggie daycare.

Dorothy was brought in as a stray. She is a little shy but warmed up in no time!! She is very friendly once she gets used to you!!! Dorothy is HW+. ; 5/13; stray; 48lbs; 2 yrs old; lab mix;

More about me Aug 22: Who wants to play ball?? We all know labby mix DOROTHY will always raise her paw up, tall and high, to volunteer to play a great game of fetch with her humans. This sleek, very athletic lady loves, loves, loves playing fetch. She will run like the wind to grab her ball and then happily prance around with her captured object. Dorothy is a very social, friendly, interactive doggy. She is happy plus!! If you are in the market for your new one and only doggy, Dorothy could be just the gal for you. She did not do a great job during her meets and greets with other dogs and has a more dominant side to her. Her real sense of joy during our photo outing was in running and playing and getting people attention. Loaded with personality and love, Dorothy is a great girl who will make a fantastic pet, but she'll need to be your one and only pet. Sound like your confident, bubbly new best girl friend? Please let us know as we'd love to set you for a game of fetch, Dorothy style!

Draco was brought in from Darlington as a an abandoned stray along with Zorro. Draco is HW:Negative and walks fairly well on a leash. He did well during his intake but acts like he is starving all of the time. He thinks anytime you bring your hand near him that you have foo for him which makes me believe that the only time he got any interaction was to be fed. He could use some work on jumping but overall is a good boy. 9/29; lab mix; 41lbs (thin); 2 yrs old

stray; thin; 9/23; 34lbs (thin); stray hold up 9/29;


4-5 yrs old; 45lbs; collie mix; 7/13; stray; HW+. Ellie was brought by AC from Darlington. She has some skin issues. I do believe it’s either allergies or flea infestation. She did not get vaccinated not HW tested!!!

More about me August 10: "I just need someone to love me and care for me," explains our pretty lady ELLIE with the 1/2 coat of fur and very tender pink skin. If you think it's painful to look at our girl with the wisps of hair for a coat, imagine the itchiness and discomfort Ellie can't escape day to day. Despite her medical travails and overall hardship she's endured for many months now, you'll not find a sweeter nor more genuine girl that takes the time to lean into you and give you a nuzzle with her long, tapered nose. She might have just stayed in snuggly/nuzzly mode all day if given the chance! Ellie is a love and we adore her. Ellie is lacking in confidence and perhaps in part it's because she's not feeling great and feels a bit vulnerable. We had her off leash with a mish mash of other dogs and in general she's pretty mild and meek around them. She'll get right into the thick of the pack and is pretty relaxed and slowly goes about her business. She's never in any rush. Periodically, if she felt another dog was being a bit nosey, she would sound a barking alarm asking for space. Ellie does not want any trouble and comes in peace. Very calm, polite and doting, Ellie is truly a lovely, lovely girl inside and out. Perhaps you will be the one to help restore her greatness! Please ask for her today.

Emery- Puppy- safe

stray; hound mix; 3 mos old; 8/17; 17lbs

More about me Sept 14: I met Emery today and what a lovely, lovely girl! She is very mild and meek but sweet, sweet, sweet! i found her in a larger crate in one of our buildings and carefully reached in inviting her to join me for some fun photo time. Emery was not up to walking to our photo area on a leash so we carried this beauty out front to our grassy play yard. Emery is a very quiet girl and did i mention sweet? One of our volunteers was quick to plop down and offer up her lap for Emery's comfort. Emery was quickly swarmed by other puppies we had loose in the play yard and also larger dogs. She is wonderful with other dogs but for now, we are not seeing a full blown puppy playfulness with her. On her own, she opted to quietly relax and watch on the sidelines all of the off leash running and playing of others. Emery has a ton of potential and she is a real beauty with her cream and latte colored coat. She has zero aggression in her and is very soft, limp and supple when you tote her around.

Foster update Sept 16: Emery is a precious little 4 month old hound pup who is beginning to learn about life outside the shelter. She is the perfect little foster, very agreeable to whatever you want her to do. She has been exploring the backyard, meeting some doggy friends and enjoying having some toys of her own. At this point in time she has a low-medium energy level and is as gentle as can be. Emery is hoping her very own family will find her soon.
