Pets in Need (n-z)


O/S- can no longer take care of. Nola was surrendered with her brother Biscuit. She is very sweet and loves to cuddle. She is HW negative. 1 yr old; 47lbs; bully mix; 12/3/22

More about me Jan 5: Nola is beautiful. Really stunning. I immediately liked her super friendly feel and wiggly hips! She was not initially on my list to take out for photos today but she caught my eye and the rest is history. Nola's happy spot during eval and photo time was definitely near her new human friends. She will make a bee line to humans coming her way and she's ready to give you a very warm welcome. She is very much into draping herself in your lap and softly cleaning your face. Very affectionate and loving, it's easy to ask for a second helping on this pretty lady. We tested her with a variety of dogs and in general she was not very welcoming to them. She is dominant and is quick to let others know that. She did however find a semi friend in 4 month old Tennessee pup who was not going to challenge her on any level and just wanted to softly say "Hi" while striking very submissive poses. Curiously, Nola came in with a male dog (now adopted) so we are hopeful perhaps she might still be open to broadening her horizon to include more dogs. Even if she does not, again she's such a good natured, doting girl that YOU would be the lucky one to have her by your side...and in your lap...and cleaning your face!

Norah- safe

Norah was found in I-20 on the side of the road. She is a little shy and scared but warmed right up to me in the med room. By the time I was done with her intake I was getting mini tail wags! Eager to please! Norah is HW:Positive. shep mix; 46lbs; 2-3 yrs old; 11/7/22

Odessa was brought in as a stray by animal control. She is very scared and does not walk well on a leash. She is HW negative. shep mix; 41lbs; 1-2 yrs old; stray; 11/10/22

More about me Jan 5: Check out those tall bat ears folks!  Who would have thought? Our pretty lady ODESSA has tried to go unnoticed (and with success) til the photo lady found her and knew she needed some help.   Today was our big day and while she was super tentative getting out of her kennel and walking on the leash to our front field area, nonetheless she made it!   Odessa remained pretty timid/shy/reserved until we added our shy friend Mr Pickles to her play yard and that's when we "found" her smile and also her ears.  Odessa is a sweet natured, very calm girl.  She goes pretty stiff when you pet her and does her best to tolerate the attention. She definitely softened up in the 2 hrs we had her out and was observed for a good time actually running around and playing with Mr Pickles.  It was rewarding to see them find joy and safety in each other's company.   Odessa is still a work in progress but the work has commenced!!  Good, brave girl Odessa!

More about me Jan 10: Odessa made us all proud today. This brave girl showed marked improvement in walking up to the play yard area and was out and about in no time scooting around with her bestie, Mr Pickles. Showing much more engagement with dogs as we added them to her area and also acting slightly less "stiff" around us humans, we saw plenty of tail wags and relaxed smiles from this pretty lady. Close to her kennel at the shelter (in returning her), her leash accidentally slipped off her neck and she did not panic...nor did the humans! She beautifully waited for one of us to slowly slip it back over her head. Such a good girl!

Oscar- Sponsored for pull fees and HW treatment

He walks well on the leash. male; lab mix; HW+; 64lbs; stray; 5-6 yrs old; 6/29/22.

More about me August 22, 2022: The Big Chill! Our middle aged man is simply the BEST! Never in any real rush and graced with an old soul feel, we had our 5th grade youth volunteer in charge of walking him and posing him for pictures and his energy and disposition made the two of them the perfect pair. Oscar is one of the most polite dogs you're apt to meet and he's very generous in softly nudging at you and showing you his appreciation in simply being by your side. Oscar is a bigger guy at 65lbs, but he's a dream to manage and really enjoyed slowly ambling along in our play yard area. Beautifully meeting both male and female dogs off leash, he's a very non-threatening doggy with a peaceful, accepting energy about him. We can easily see Oscar in a home loaded with pets of all types and also kids. He is a delightful, super pleasant guy, whose middle name should be "Best Friend."

Foster update Sept10: Day 2 with my friend Oscar, out on loan from Darlington County Humane Society Rescue . This big love muffin just wants snuggles. He's good on a leash, he's good with other dogs, he's house broken and crate trained. Last night he slept peacefully in a kennel. Today, when I was drained and needed a nap, I didn't put him up and he was so good outside of his kennel.

Precious- Teen

Precious was brought in as a stray from Darlington. She is a happy go lucky yet slightly submissive girl. She is Hw:Negative. She is all wiggle butt so it was hard to get a decent picture of her. 8-9 mos old; kab mix 12/29; 32lbs


Rachael was brought in as an owner surrender. She is very nervous and unsure of her surroundings but still sweet and gentle. She walks very well on a leash. hw-; 57lbs; Gr Pyrenees; DOB: Nov 2021; 1/23; won't stay in yard- family worried about the busy road where they live. Reportedly good with other dogs.


Rosevelt is really underweight. He was found chained in the woods in Hartsville and as taken by the sheriffs dept. He can not be reclaimed. He is underweight. HW:Negative and so friendly. He did so well inside but for his intake but you can tell he didn’t know how to handle being inside. The adjustment to becoming an inside dog may be difficult for him. He paced the floor and tried to go outside every chance he got.. hw-; 12/5; 69lbs; 1-2 yrs old; gsd; TA


stray; 53lbs; 8/9; 1-2 yrs old; HW-; Rowan is an absolute sweetheart!! He is HW:Negative and walks decent on the leash. his intake was a breeze and he was submissive when I approached him. TA

Foster Update Dec 7: Rowan was a delight to have in the house. The first few days he was nervous, chewy and I think peed inside twice, but he settled in very quickly. He loved to climb on the couch and cuddle with his humans, always eager for a little attention. He also did very well with Ghost (our male dog adopted from Darlington). They were both strong willed and pushy but they managed to communicate pretty well and Rowan deferred to him. Once Rowan adjusted to the house everything was pretty smooth sailing. It was heart breaking to bring him back, but the cat reaction didn't allow us to keep him forever. If he found a home without cats I have no doubt they would fall in love with him.

O/S- moving; 2 yrs old; 7/28/22; reportedly good with kids and other dogs; HW-; Previously lived inside with a chihuahua. No cats for her please.

Update Sept 6: Judy (Ruby-prior name)- Judy came prancing out of that dog run, happy as can be to get out for a walk. She had some play time to herself for a few minutes and was delighted to find a squeaky ball that everyone in the area knew about very quickly. She loved marching around to the rhythm of the squeak. Judy met male and female dogs very politely but was not really interested in running around with them. In her prior home she had a chihuahua sibling so this meet and greet was not new for her. She has a nice energy level and mostly enjoyed the people and attention from them, and she really loved the toys! I’m sure that is one of many things she has missed from being in a home. Judy is anxious to find her new family and into getting those regular snuggles and pets again. Please give this girl a good look!

Youth Volunteer update Oct 22: She's a 4 year old playful girl, who's always eager to play with some new toys. She reacts well to other dogs and is open to meeting new people after she's been introduced. She's curious about her surroundings and ready to explore.

Rudolph- Intake Nov 2021

lab; 12/7/2021; hw-; 73lbs; 3.5yrs old; Rudolph was brought in by AC and is a sheriff's department case.. We are awaiting a court date. Rudolph is really sweet, He cries when he's not outside or when you're not paying him any attention. He pushed the med room door open trying to get to MRs. Pam when she was standing away from the door. He is NOT cat friendly!!! He did well for his intake and was eager to get back outside.. Rudolph seems to be house/kennel trained. He used the bathroom alot on our way to the med room.

More about me Dec 14: He doesn't have a red nose, but hey we still call him Rudolph!  This big, strapping, handsome hunk is ready to go and do and have some fun!  At 73lbs,  he's no pansy and with his zest for life and his interest in meeting all, expect a brisk pace in walking this great dog!   We had Rudolph out with a myriad of other dogs, male and female, large/small and of a mix of breeds.  He is more of a top dog kind of guy but had no problem mixing in with the group we had.  He was off leash with 4 other dogs and typically he goes and does his own thing, unless he is with sporty, playful Ruger (lab mix) who was insistent that they be best friends and prowl around together!  Rudolph is very affectionate and giving of his love and time to humans. He was oftentimes on his back, legs in the air while yet one more human was scratching his belly.    Rudolph brings a wonderful full of life energy vibe to him no matter where he goes which is most infectious.  It's hard to have a frowny face when this dog is under your care.   Rudolph isn't just a seasonal pet companion...he's looking for a long term, all season pet commitment.  Might it be with you?   Surely, Santa would look favorably upon you if you brought him on home.

Sienna - safe

Sienna was brought in as a stray by animal control. She is scared and will not walk on a leash. I had to carry her into the med room and after I put her down all she wanted to do was follow me around. I sat down on the floor and she walked up to me and got in my lap and we just cuddled for a while. She is very sweet when she feels comfortable around you but timid at first. She is HW Negative. Stray hold til 1/26; 26lbs; no breed; 2 yrs old; 1/19


Smokey was brought in as an owner surrender. He is sweet and playful and walks well on a leash. He is HW positive and does not like cats. GSD; 2 yrs old; 67lbs; 1/17. Due to owner's health, he could no longer care for Smokey.


Smudge was brought in by a community member who had been looking for his owner and keeping him safe. He had to hang out in the med room for several hours today and just napped. He didn’t bother anything or try to get out. His intake was done in no time without any issues. He is HW:Negative walks well on a leash and is so loving with him mini little tail wags. 44 lbs; no age; lab mix; 6/21/22;

More about me August 22: "Give me a minute to warm up to you and then let me show you my belly and all of my love," explains our compact bully mix SMUDGE.  Smudge is such a sweet, dear, lower riding fellow.  You'll see in his photos he's wearing a harness.  He's ready to walk out of our shelter gates and hop right into YOUR car.  This handsome, polite fellow was doing great in a trial adoption home, but when his new person became ill, sadly he was brought back to us still in need of his happily ever after.   Smudge is a super pleasant guy who does not want any trouble.  He was terrific in meeting other dogs off leash and quickly assimilated into his new pack.  At times, he was seated right by us and in the thick of things but on other occasions, he would opt to quietly sit on the sidelines and take in all fun activity.   This approachable, even keel handsome man has a good energy that suits folks spanning the ages.  He's easy to manage and was as relaxed and welcoming of the bigger and smaller dogs as he was the more energetic and slow pokey dogs.  Smudge has a high cuddle factor and will make someone a great, loyal companion pet.  Might that person be you? 

August 27 Playdate: Smudge was happy to be out and even happier to make a friend. He was partnered with another dog after play groups. This should greatly help him.

Dec 10 update: Smudge is a sweet boy. He is very laid back and was that way the whole time at Tractor Supply, but before that he was playing and running with Josephine. He enjoyed sitting in front of where the cats were so people could notice him.

8/25/22; 6 yrs old. no further info. Snoop arrived at the shelter after having the same home for over 6 years due to his owner no longer being able to care for him. He was absolutely devastated the first couple of days he was at the shelter. He has started putting weight on and is happy to have someone visit with him. Snoop is available to foster, adopter, or rescue. Let's find this boy a home.

Update Sept 6: Owner had Snoop all of his life since a pup. He is almost 7 years old. He lived inside until about 2.5 yrs old when he got big and stayed mostly in the fenced-in yard then (free to move about whole yard, never on a tie out) and came in when he chose and in bad weather. No other pets in the home, but there was a cat that stayed under the house as a stray and he never bothered it. Family came to visit often, including kids, and he was always good with everyone. Dad use to really enjoying playing with Snoop but his health has severely declined and recently he was hospitalized for an extended period and he can't depend on anyone to help care for Snoop (which is why he was surrendered looking skinny). He was loved and Dad called him playful and a good boy. Snoop's Dad is now on dialysis and trying to get stronger.

Spirit- Puppy- safe

Spirit was brought in as a stray by animal control. She is very sweet and playful. She has hair loss around her eyes and on head. She has what looks like a chunk taken out of her lip that has healed, but it does not effect the way she lives. 4 mos old; 1/19; stray hold til 1/26; no breed; 20lbs


Stanley was brought in as a stray from animal control. He was with us once before after being found tied to a light pole by the owners girlfriend. The owner came and adopted him. This time he was picked up as a stray from Hartsville. Microchip was never registered, nor has the owner contacted the shelter. He has raw spots on the end of his tail and on right ear. He is HW negative and walks okay on a leash. He is full of energy. hw-; 1/11; 1.5 yrs old; lab mix; 62lbs

Summitt- Teen- safe

Summit was brought in as a stray by animal control. He has severe mange but he doesn't let it slow him down. He is so happy and playful. He was jumping around like a rabbit during his intake. He walks well on a leash and is playful with cats, even if they are not playful with him. 37lbs; no hw; lab mix; 10/20/22; 7 mos old

Update Dec 21: Summit arrived to our shelter with some skin issues, and we gave him some time to heal. This handsome boy did not disappoint us! Here he is sporting his semi-like "breed poses." His handsome black coat, jawline, and ears will surely appeal to bully/ boxer lovers. The volunteer who took these pictures struggled with these pics because he naturally posed, but she did not want to make Summit appear tough in the photos. On the contrary, Summit is just a teen pup under a year old. He is a happy good-natured boy who immediately plops into a play bow when he greets a new canine friend. As you see from the pictures, he loves affection from his person. Summit is waiting for his home with plenty of hugs and affection from children and adults, the more the merrier. He also would really appreciate a canine friend who wants to play with him.

Symphony was brought in as a stray by Hartsville Fire Department. She is very sweet and submissive and loves to use her voice. She walks okay on a leash and is HW negative. bully mix; 39lbs; 1/12; 1 yr old

More about me Jan 16: Symphony is a typical teen pup---she loves everybody and wants to play. She greets everyone with wiggles and wags. She reads other dogs' behavior well and quickly submits or plops into a play bow to initiate play. She is sweet-natured, affectionate, and friendly to everyone she meets. At 40 lbs and just under a year old, she will be a solid, huggable girl when full grown.

New info Mid August 2022: If you’re looking for a reason to SMILE, here’s an update on TABOR! He is doing fantastic in foster. We rearranged our routine just a little bit to accommodate this sweet boy’s needs and man, oh man, is he thriving! He has to be the most clever dog I’ve ever met, and if you meet him, you’ll see too!! I just know he’ll be the best boy in his forever home soon. (I’ll be a mess but this is why we foster and why it’s worth it!).

We’ve had Tabor for 3 months as we helped address some medical needs that are now much better. He gets along great with our dogs and everyone he meets. He’s been going to work with my husband and hangs out with the employees and other dogs there too. He loves going to work and everyone there, of course, loves him. His health is much better now!! He kept a smile on his face even as we worked thru his medical stuff. He is just an all around GREAT dog that just wants to be loved and to love his family. He will need a home where he can be inside with his people, just going out to use the bathroom and play (he can use the doggy door). He follows his people around everywhere in the house (so probably not best for someone elderly or a fall risk). He’s very gentle but will walk right on your heels sometimes. He loves his people. He will need someone who understands his past medical history and will be attentive to ensuring it doesn’t happen again (had a prolapse in the past). Currently, he will need to be on wet food only and have one medicine to take every three months in addition to the monthly flea and heartworm preventative. (He is heartworm positive but it’s not the time to treat them.) He deserves lots of love and understanding as he first settles in. He doesn’t like to be kenneled and loves a home with other dogs. Being kenneled causes too much stress on his body which contributed to his past medical issue. He really doesn’t need a kennel either. We used to separate him in his own room when we would leave the house but a couple weeks into foster, we learned he was fine roaming the house with our other dogs since he would just turn the doorknob and open the door himself anyway lol. He will sleep just fine with a doggie bed out in the open or even in a little nook of the house or even on his favorite chair. He is around 4 years old and is just a GREAT dog. My update may sound like a lot, but he truly is a pretty low maintenance guy with lots of love to give. I just want the best home for him because of everything he’s been through and how wonderful he is. Note: Owner surrender - no time for pet. HW+; 53lbs; 3 yrs old; bull mix; 7/11/2020; male; Treated for HW's summer 2021.

More about me July 22, 2022: We’re looking for someone that can foster Tabor while his furever home is found! He needs supervision when around our cats and with our schedule and the traveling we’ve been doing, it’s been really tricky to do that. He gets along well with all of the other dogs in our home those that visit and is very loving on his people. Seriously, he loves people, oh and food!! He’s also great in the car and knows how to use the doggie door. Tabor is a great boy and will be your best friend. He’s goofy and sensitive. He just wants to be around you where he feels safest. He’s even learned to open the door and baby gate to be with you if you’re on the other side! We just have to look at him and say “I don’t think so.” and he turns around and goes back! 🤣 He has learned a lot commands very quickly and when you meet him, you’ll see why he’s so loved by so many of us!! He is now able to have 1.5 cups of Purina One dry food with a half can of Purina One wet food 2x a day!! No more wet food only for Tabor!

Toast- safe

Toast was brought in by animal control as a stray. His face may look angry but he is very sweet and playful. He walks well on a leash and is HW negative. He was so well behaved for his intake and really enjoyed Pam giving him butt scratchies. He did not have any reaction to cats. hw-; lab mix; 40lbs; 10/31/22; 1yr old

More about me Jan 10: What better way to start your day than with a perfect slice of puppy happiness, goofiness  and hugs and kisses.   Bring on home TOAST today and you too can live this dream each and every day.   Toast is such a cool looking guy with his sleek tan coat,  slightly scrunchy/square shaped boxer face and a wee bit of white at the end of his tail which is in constant go go mode!   Toast is a fun dog who is loaded with "play with me" vibes.  We had him out and about with male and female dogs and he's a true friend to all.  He loves actively engaging with other dogs which includes a fun game of tag and some slight wrestling.  If Toast could speak he might say, "I'm here for the party.  Let's go and have a great time."  Toast is a smile maker and while he has plenty of kisses and a terrific puppy like feel to him, he's never over the top and an easy enough guy to manage.   Aged at a year old,  Toast is graced with a refreshing, young attitude that is sure to appeal to a broad audience.   Don't miss out on this great guy and ask for him today.  

And more...If you are looking for a good time,  you NEED to call our good friend TOAST!  Toast had such a grant time running, playing, racing around and acting super goofy during photo time yesterday.  While in most photos he has a more serious face,  trust us that there is nothing serious about this loveable, handsome fellow.  Let him loose with other dogs and sit back and enjoy the play date.   Toast has patiently waited since end of October for his happily ever after.  Might it be with you!

Tobias was brought in as a stray by animal control. She is friendly and playful and walks well on a leash. She is HW negative. bully mix; 10/17/22; 47lbs; 1-2 yrs old

More about me Dec 10: In case you are not aware, Tobias is a FEMALE! She is a happy girl who enjoys talking with other dogs while she plays. We initially assessed her with Alana and all went well. We just noticed that she would benefit from having someone more her size to play with so we put her and Josephine together. They had a blast!

More about me Jan 5: She does it all. Her name is TOBIAS and boy, oh boy, are you in for a treat and a load of good times with this girl as your new super, best friend. Tobias is a spitfire, everyone's cheerleader and her book is wide open. You'll not find a more playful, giving, affectionate lady than Tobias. Huggy and kissy and in the hunt for belly rubs, once she has had her human "fix" it's off to the dogs for some play time. Tobias has a stronger play style and is an active, engaging, wrestling kind of girl. She's totally ok with both male and female dogs and would certainly enjoy having a regular playmate in her new home. A quiet wall flower companion may not ideally suit her interests so one who shares her umph and zestiness would bring her great happiness. Tobias has plenty of zoomie energy but proudly, we can say we helped her work off a lot of it and she got pooped...she will tire out! Tobias loves her balls and is great at playing fetch. Eager to be a part of the group, of the action and involved in whatever is going on, we could almost hear her say, "Pick me. I want to come along and have fun." Tobias would be thrilled to be swarmed by teenage kids and would provide them with endless sessions of pure, pet joy! Tobias is the silly, spirited, happy girl that makes everyone smile. Please consider her for your next companion pet.

Fall 2022 Update for Paws Around the Pee Dee: Gentle and sweet, good leash walker. Tortellini was an absolute dream today while we were out and about playing Bingo with her. She rode so well in the car, walked magnificently on a leash, didn't react to other dogs in her vicinity, she absolutely loved interacting with all the people who wanted to pet her, kids and adults alike. She's only about 2 years old, but she seems like an old soul. Surely somebody out there wants such a perfect girl like she is.

One of the volunteers nailed the hammer on the head by saying, "Tucker has people manners." He was such the hit during photo time. We had him out for a good 2 hours and he just did not disappoint and was loved by all the dogs and humans he met. He met a good mix of dogs greeting them in a polite, happy, calm and respectful manner. Very, very easy to manage, one of our super senior volunteers was in charge of walking him around and he was a good match for her. Tucker is a very social being and any chance he got, he would trot right on over to get a hug, ease down in your lap and or give us kisses. He's very gentle in his ways and just as loving as they are built. Tucker would be delighted to care for a family with kids and his energy/disposition would also work well for an older retired couple. His tail (besides his huge grin) was one of the first things we all noticed. It keeps beat and moves just like a metronome. No joking. Such a pleasant and appealing fella, Tucker is the ideal pet for most any home setting. With his slightly wavy coat of fur and super friendly smile, this is a doggy who will be swarmed in your neighborhood so be prepared!

Turquoise -safe

Turquoise was brought in as a stray by animal control. She is friendly and playful. HW-; hound; 1 yr old; 43lbs; 12/14;

More about me Jan 6: You'll not find a more well balanced nor prettier doggy than our good friend TURQUOISE.  This stunning tri-colored girl is everything and more that you would expect from a doggy of her lineage.   First off,  Turquoise loves everyone she meets, humans (spanning the ages) and doggies (male and female).  She was so awesome in meeting other dogs and they, so accepting of her, that she quickly was promoted to Tester Doggy.   She is a very social, loving, flirty butterfly and is very sweet and gentle natured.  We found that she was an excellent read on other dogs and adjusted her play style and mode of saying "hi" very much based on the dog she was meeting.  We had her off leash for a good hour or two with a shyer male and female dog.  We had hoped that having her in their space might show them "the ropes" of sorts.   Turquoise arrived as a stray so while we don't know her background per say,  we do know she was a very loved girl who was taught some great pet skills.  We can't wait to see whose lap and whose face she might be cleaning next.  A home with other dogs and kids would beautifully mesh with her pet style.   Will you be the lucky one to have Turquoise as your new best friend??

More about me Jan 5: I almost cannot contain myself but give me a few minutes when I see you and I'll do my best to check my silly, wiggly self!  I'll also happily show you my beautiful "sit." Folks say I am cute.  I AM super cute (and very smart/observant) and I really, really love my peeps.  I am a major hugger and kisser and uber affectionate.  I have the broadest smile in the county and might have the fastest swiveling hips.  Graced with a very playful feel and a "let's go and do and explore" outlook to life,  I am an athletic girl who would thrive in a more active home where I can be an important part of your daily life.   I'll admit, I was not the best at meeting dogs during my outing today.  I did however find a great friend (Barney) who matched my playstyle.  We just had a blast tearing it up in the play yard.  It's possible I might have wiped out taking some turns a bit too fast but I was up and at 'em in no time to keep pace with my hunky friend.   I'm a confident, mid-sized, spitfire of a girl who loves life and loves making sure my human friends feel all the love I have in store for them.   I'm hoping this lusty for life doggy is just what you are looking for in this new year.  I'll keep an eye out for you!  Thanks for checking in!  WHIPPLE.

Winston was brought in as an owner surrender. Person died and then the family moved. He is very sweet and playful and walks well on a leash. He has no reaction to cats and is HW negative. bully mix; 1 yr old; hw-; 44lbs; 11/12

Dec 23 Update: All About Winston:

Winston wants to meet every person that he sees, quite the sociable boy.

Winston’s tail does not stop wagging, it might come in handy in the summer to keep the flies away, and provide a fan at the same time.

Winston is so handsome, his smile won’t quit when you pet and talk to him.

Winston likes to play with humans and other dogs.

Winston keeps a happy, optimistic attitude, even though his person died and he lost his family. He knows that there is another one out there that needs him as much as he needs them.
