Pets at PAWS Need Homes, Donations: September 18 Pets

Anderson County PAWS is an open-intake shelter that provided help to approximately 7,000 animals last year. Kim Sanders, their director and veterinarian, says the goal of PAWS is to find loving and wonderful homes for all of the animals that come into their care.

Upstate Natural Awakenings would like to introduce you to a couple of their star residents.


Meet Toofs! This golden girl is 10 years young and looking for her fur-ever home! Poor Toofs doesn’t understand why she gets lots of laughs when she smiles, and really doesn’t understand why she has been overlooked for an entire year at P.A.W.S. Toofs would make a great family dog; she enjoys cuddling and earning treats, and doesn’t at all mind playing dress up. As a sweet senior girl, Toofs has more than waited her turn to be queen of the house and can’t wait to be the only dog in your life.

Meet Peter! Peter is a Chinese Shar Pei mix and around 2 years old. This handsome guy loves fetch, tennis balls, and long walks. Plus, don’t forget those dignified wrinkles; this is a face you’re going to have to smush! Peter would do best in a home as an only dog, or in a family willing to work on his socialization.

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.
