Who We Are

Established in 2005, The Animal Advocates is a non-profit auxiliary organization that supports the animals of Barnwell County and the Barnwell County Shelter.

Mission: Our mission is to provide care and shelter for stray, abandoned and abused cats and dogs in our community; to place these animals in stable and loving permanent homes; to promote and provide spay/neuter surgeries to reduce the animal population; and, to make the public aware and educate the community on the proper care and treatment of all animals.
General Information Our Friend for Life Center is strictly provided to help the animals of Barnwell County. The Animal Advocates pull adoptable animals from the Barnwell County Animal Shelter that would otherwise be euthanized. It is our policy that we cannot accept animals from the public.

Adopting a friend

Our adoption process entails: A 3 day waiting period after the appropriate adoption papers have been completely filled out and returned back to us signed and dated. Our standard 3 day waiting period provides us enough time to process the application and check references. It also provides you with some time to get your home ready for your new family member. Once the application is approved in order to take your new family member home we require that for his/her safety you must bring a collar leash and/or carrier for the animal to leave our facility. Thank you for choosing to Adopt!!

Note: Our adoption fees START at 85$ - Cats/Kittens and 125$ - Dogs/Puppies Adoption fees include: Spay/Neuter Being up to date on Vaccinations including Rabies Micro-Chipping They may also include other surgeries and/or medical cost that the animal acquires while at our facility and to be made healthy and live up to our standard of Adoptable. This is all in efforts to try and provide you with a happy and healthy future family member.
