Our mission is to shelter and protect the unwanted and abandoned animals of Clarendon County, to facilitate the adoption of those animals, to promote population control through spay and neuter programs and to educate the community about the care of animals.

We are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 9am to 3pm.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fee for dogs is $125 and for cats; $100. This includes neuter/spay, FELV/FIV/Heartworm test, and age appropriate vaccines.
For any out-of-state adoptions, we require a local accredited ASPCA home visit and a vet reference.
