My story

Rico is very friendly with people and would enjoy being with an outdoorsy person. He loves going for walks and being with people. He is an active dog and he is bonded to his favorite playmate, his brother Chico. They play and wrestle together. He doesn’t ever want to go inside, although this could change with some patience. He needs room to run and a privacy fence due to his ability to climb a chain link fence. Rico is butterscotch colored with white and black markings and beautiful eyes. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, microchipped and healthy. He is a beautiful mix of breeds but mostly Boxer with a date of birth of 3/26/18 and full grown at 73 pounds. Rico would love to find a home with his brother Chico. *************************************************************************** This pet comes with an implanted 24 PetWatch microchip and free registration into the 24PetWatch pet recovery service. *************************************************************************** This dog is available for adoption at the Humane Society of McCormick County for an adoption fee.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

The animals in our care urgently need a permanent home where someone can provide individual loving care and attention.

The adoption fee is $125 for dogs and $65 for cats. Every animal has been given all appropriate vaccinations. Every animal that is old enough has been spayed/neutered.

More about this shelter

The Humane Society of McCormick County is a private, non-profit, no-kill organization formed in September 2000. We are staffed entirely by volunteers and we operate the only shelter in the county. Our rural county is a very poor county in South Carolina.

McCormick County does not allocate any money for a county or city shelter and we do not have any veterinarians in our county.

We are all our county has for any help with animals.

We approach this problem through our "No more litters... fix your critters" low cost spay/neuter program. We altered a total of 272 dogs and cats in 2020! (95 McCormick County owned dogs and cats free of charge to those who qualified for it, 119 HSMC rescues, and 58 trap-neuter/spay-return-monitor.)
