Adopting A Friend

Anyone interested in adopting from our facility can come visit with our animals and complete a pre adoption application. Applications are then submitted to the Florence Area Humane Soceity for review. You will be contacted within 24-48 hours of submitting an application. After being interviewed, if approved, you may return to the facility to complete the final adoption. 

Pre adoption applications can be found at the humane society webpage: www.florencehumanesociety.org, on the ADOPT page. 

Who We Are

The Jayne H Boswell Animal Shelter is a collaborative effort between the City of Florence and the Florence Area Humane Society. Together, we operate the facility located at 1434 Mccurdy Road, Florence, SC 29506. 

Phone Number: 843-629-5456

Fax: 843-629-5457

We have ample selection of dogs, puppies, cat and kittens. All of our animals are vaccinated, wormed and when age appropriate tested for heartworms. 

South Carolina Law requires that all animals adopted from an animal shelter must be spayed or neutered to help control pet overpopulation. Many of our animals are already altered or arrangements will be made to use the vet of your choice or the low cost clinic in Florence, SNIP.

Our shelter is open to the public Tuesday- Saturday 12-5.
