Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Patter Pets serves southeast Columbia in Richland County, SC.

About Our Shelter:

Patter Pets provides shelter for abandoned dogs and cats. All animals are tested, vaccinated and spayed/neutered. Our goal is to help reduced the number of unwanted pets in our community and find loving homes for our animals.

We also foster pets for familes in crisis until they can be reunited with their pet. Often families find themselves in a crisis that may cause them to surrender their pet to animal control. We believe that these families can keep their pet if provided with assistance as they resolve their crisis.

We are in need of funding to finish the addition to our shelter. We have been providing service to the SE Columbia area since 2004 and have grown in size and need. Our goal is to always house the animals in small groups within a home like environment. We do not cage our pets so we are also in need of used furniture, small dog houses, pet bedding, food dishes, litter, paper towels and small radios for the shelter.

Come Meet our Pets:

We currently have pets featured on WLTX.com and participate in WLTX's Pet Pause feature program on the news with Jim Gandy. Our adoptions are by appointment.

Our Adoption Process:

We require the adopter to complete an application for screenging and a contract when adopting. Our fees are $100.00 for cat adoptions and $150.00 for dog adoptions.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
