We are sorry you are no longer able to care for your pet. There is a Facebook page for people looking to rehome their family pets called Pets In Need Of Rescue, Foster Or Adoption Of Upstate, S.C. that you can use to share information about your pet and situation. If you do share information about your pet online, be cautious. Unfortunately, people looking for free bait dogs often contact trusting owners through these pages. Make sure you get and check veterinary and employer references before giving anyone your pet.
We typically stay full but if we can help rehome, we will try. We need to know a bit about the animal. Please include the age, spayed or neutered, how they get along with dogs and cats. What heartworm prevention is used. If your dog is current on vaccinations, including rabies, and if they have been around kids.
If you email us information about your pet, including a photo, to firstname.lastname@example.org we may also be able to share your situation with our Facebook followers on your behalf.
Thank you for looking out for this dog. If you don’t feel like you can approach its owners, the best way you can help is to report its situation to Animal Control.

When you call, tell the Animal Control Officer you will continue to check back with them to make sure the situation has been addressed. Follow up with the officer if you don’t get an update. Then call their supervisor if necessary.
If you’re not happy with the answers you’re getting, make sure your local City or County Council member hears about it. You have as much power to help animals in our community as we do – and this is the only way we can influence real change. We need as many voices as possible speaking on behalf of animals.
