Pets available for adoption are ready to go home the same day you adopt. The adoption process only takes about 30 minutes, and the fee covers their spay or neuter, de-wormer, vaccinations, and microchip, which is well worth it for their love! Also, pets adopted from the Colleton County Animal Shelter will go home with coupons for Petco, a free OFFICE VISIT (*not including booster & vaccination shots*) from two of our local veterinarians, and a free grooming from the Pet Salon, Tangled Toes, as long you bring in your pet within 10 days of adoption.
PLEASE consider the benefits of adopting your next pet from a shelter and/or rescue, microchip and PLEASE spay or neuter your current pets. To find out more about our pets after hours, please e-mail to:
