Pets at PAWS Need Homes, Donations: June 2018 Pets

Anderson County PAWS is an open-intake shelter that provided help to approximately 7,400 animals last year. Kim Sanders, their director and veterinarian, says the goal of PAWS is to find loving and wonderful homes for each of the 175 dogs and 15 cats that are presently available for adoption.

There is no adoption fee for cats and the fee for dogs is $35, with reduced fees offered often. This includes heartworm testing for dogs, and FeLV, FIV for cats. The pets also receive their required vaccines and are microchiped, dewormed, spayed or neutered and receive flea treatment. PAWS is a county-funded organization.

Upstate Natural Awakenings would like to introduce you to a couple of their star boarders. We will repeat this feature in each of our quarterly pet issues which run in March, June, September and December. You can also go on to the PAWS website to view other pets who are waiting for that special person to love.



Hi, my name is Radar. I am as much fun as my ears are big. I love to play with the toys out in the yard. I have a kennel mate and I am very respectful of her space. I am very aware that “hoomans” do not like to be jumped on, so I will ask for affection nicely. I believe I am a little guy, though, and do enjoy your lap. Come to PAWS and say hello. Perhaps I am your perfect match.



Eliza here! If you compared me to candy, I would be a Hershey’s Kiss and just like the tag on the inside, my tail is long and always wagging! I love to take short breaks from my casual strolls to roll through the grass with delight and, if you’ve got a safe place for me to play off-leash, I will show you how sweetly I handle my stuffed animal friends. I can be a bit of a Sour Patch Kid when around other animals, so I need a family that understands the needs of an only child. With a little love and guidance, I’m sure to become your Sweet Tart.

Hours: M, T, Th, Fr, Sat, noon-6 p.m.; closed Wed and Sun. PAWS Shelter, 1320 Hwy. 29 S., Anderson (half a mile from Bypass 28). Visit to view animals available for adoption.
