Our Mission

Saving Sumter's Strays was founded in 2016 with the sole purpose of vamping up the rescue program at Sumter Animal Control. Our organization is the bridge between the shelter and a happy ending.

Our primary focus is helping the animals that find themselves in our local shelter. Our program has grown and evolved in the past couple of years. In addition to rescue networking, we are now responsible for the adoption program at the shelter, as well as providing medical care and other supplies to enhance the care of the animals while they stay at the shelter.

Adoption Policy

Submit application. We do a vet reference check, schedule a tour/meet and greet with the pet you are interested in. We do not do same day adoptions. You can come walk a dog or several dogs and spend time with them. Let us know and we can schedule a time to go over application and finalize

The process includes screening by our adoption coordinator, application approval, then an appointment can be scheduled for a meet and greet.

The adoption fee ranges from $250 to $350 covers: vaccinations, spay/neuter, deworming, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, and a microchip. If a dog is heartworm positive, treatment will be facilitated by Saving Sumter's Strays.
