PAWS Pets Need Homes, Donations: March 2020

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.

Cosmo does so well on the leash. He would thrive with a pet parent who likes being outdoors. He loves climbing around on the rocks at Hartwell Dam, is very curious about the lake, and has a great time sniffing around. He understands ‘come’ and ‘come here’ and returns to you immediately. He’s such a gentle and sweet boy. Cosmo also may be the quietest dog I’ve ever encountered. His future forever home is going to be so lucky to have such a loving dog.

Shirley is a gem on a leash—she much prefers to walk alongside her friend. Shirley loves long walks, but her turn to shine is when it comes to cuddling and belly rubs. Shirley is very sweet and affectionate. She loves giving hugs, and snuggling together. You can look into her eyes and see how much love she has to give. Her pet parents are going to be so loved by this incredibly kind and loving girl.

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.
