Our Mission: 



BCPAWS has a few great cats that were found in the woods and saved from starvation.These cats are not happy living inside a home as they were probably born in the wild. They would make excellent 'Barn Cats" to keep your barn 'mouse and critter free! They are all spayed or neutered and up to date on their shots. For more information on these animals, please call PAWS at 843-688-4414 or Marguerite at 843-708-0566.


How To Adopt An Animal

 

Please note that we have the right to refuse adoption of any of our animals for any reason we feel applicable ! 

There is no public shelter to visit. Instead, our companion animals are lovingly cared for in one of our approved foster homes where they can more readily adjust to a family/home environment. To see an animal you are interested in, contact the foster home to make an appointment. Foster names and contact numbers are listed in the pet's information on the Pet List page. Cats are adopted as INDOOR ONLY pets.

All PAWS pets have been examined by a veterinarian, de-wormed, vaccinated and altered. Dogs are tested for heartworm and treated if positive. Most of our dogs and cats are also Microchipped. Cats are also tested for Feline Leukemia/FIV

An adoption application is required and upon approval a contract must be signed. This is our Application to Adopt a Cat. CAT APPLICATION This is our Application to Adopt a Dog. DOG APPLICATION Please download the appropriate application, print it and fill it out. Then contact the foster home named on the animal's page in our Pet List below. You may review the terms of our contract here

Pets of the Month

Our pets of the month introduce themselves!


CAT OF THE MONTH!



Tira

Poor Baby Tira was stuck in a county pound in Virginia - the only kitty there amongst over 100 dogs - and her travel to South Carolina and into foster care was a miraculous one. Within 24 hours, this kitten captured many hearts, and those hearts came together to bring her to safety. About nine weeks old, Baby Tira is a beautifully marked classic-tabby tortoiseshell. The light markings above her eyes give her an appearance of always being surprised! She is a purry sweetheart and constantly runs to her foster mom to give her kisses on the nose and cheek. She also loves to sleep with her foster mom, purring herself to sleep. Being a kitten, Baby Tira also loves to play, play, play! She gets along OK with other cats, though it will take her a few days to adjust. Older children would be a good fit for her, and any dogs would need to be older and calm as well. Baby Tira, named after the woman who drove her to South Carolina from Virginia, has already tested negative for feline leukemia and AIDS and has received her first distempter booster. She has also been deflead and dewormed. She will be spayed and microchipped in approximately two-three weeks. If you would like to meet this precious bundle of fur, please contact Amelia at 926-2105. All cats and kittens adopted from Berkeley County PAWS must remain indoor only, and declawing is prohibited following adoption.


DOG OF THE MONTH!

Geronimo!

ADOPTED! CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU!

 

Adoption Fee: $100.00

Geronimo is a German Shepherd mix that was 4 years old on January 1st. Poor Geronimo was hit by a car and the police picked him up and brought him to the emergency room. Owners were located, but couldn't afford the treatment, so PAWS took him home to care for him. He sustained a crushed pelvis and required 6 weeks of crate rest to heal. He had a slight heart worm positive, but BC PAWS treated him for that. He is now HEARTWORM free! Geronimo has healed just fine and now loves running and playing with the other dogs! Geronimo is crate trained, house trained, walks well on leash and is so happy to have someone to love him in his forever home.

Why do we ask for donations? We are not subsidized by any local, state or federal government agencies. We rely solely on donations to accomplish our mission to save lives. In 2003 96% of our expenses were directly related to the care of PAWS animals and our community Spay/Neuter (SNIP) program.


Love the convenience of shopping on-line?

 

Register at I Give and name Berkeley County PAWS as YOUR CAUSE. You can shop at hundreds of your favorite stores and a percentage of each of your purchases will be donated to PAWS to assist with our life saving programs.



Kibbles for Kritters

PAWS relies on the generosity of other animal lovers to help provide for our rescues while they wait for a home in foster care. We hope that you will think of them and pick up a few cans or bags of pet food or kitty litter when you shop. 

Please refer to our WISH LIST a little farther down this page for needed supplies.

Donate a Dog Bed

 Provide some creature comfort to our deserving adoptable dogs by donating a Kuranda Fleece dog bed. Just go to Kuranda Web Site and enter our name, Berkeley County PAWS, to place an order.

THANK YOU for helping us to help them!

We couldn't do it without YOU!


 

The altering of a companion animal is every pet owner's responsibility to their pet and the community. There is no excuse for not having it done. The procedure is safe and simple and your pet will fully recover in 7 to 10 days. It can be done as early as 3 months of age and will improve your pet's health and behavior. It is the humane way to control the pet population. The tri-county area has two low cost Spay/Neuter Clinics that are available to everyone, the John Ancrum SPCA Spay and Neuter Clinic at the SuperPetz in West Ashley, and the Doc Williams SPCA Spay and Neuter Clinic in Goose Creek.

Do your part: Spay and Neuter your pets!
