Anderson County PAWS, which is the county shelter in Anderson, South Carolina, has more than had their hands full after 119 dogs and cats were seized from the Golden S. Rescue.

Many have stepped up to help with donations and volunteer offers to get the new animals settled in. In a case such as this, the seized dogs can't be housed in the same population as the dogs already in the shelter. The risk of passing infections back and forth is too great.

This situation has created a problem at the shelter. The animals who were already in their care need to find homes as soon as possible.

Please take a look at this slideshow, then pass this article along to friends who are looking to add a new cat or dog to the family. The adoption fee has been waived for those pictured here. Anderson County PAWS is very careful in their adoption screening.

These are not the dogs and cats seized, as they're being held as required by law. The best news Anderson County PAWS could get at this point is for all of the animals on their Code Red-Urgent list to find a loving forever home.

If you see a dog or cat you'd like to adopt, call 864-260-4151 after 12pm or email Randi Leigh at and include a photo of the animal you're interested in. She will then send you a prescreen application to begin the adoption process.
