Bristol came to us heart worm positive and very pregnant. She has watched her babies go into their forever homes and has started her slow kill heart worm treatment. She is now ready for her forever home. Bristol is super sweet and adores people. She is also great with other dogs.

Bailey is just one big bundle of love and affection! She is playful and has the energy to go all day. Loves kids and great with other dogs

This boy is a ball of energy and fun! Ajax came from a horrible hoarding and breeding compound. He is 6 years old and would do best in a home with a very submissive male, or a female, or even as the only dog. He does really well with females, just dominate over males. Ajax is a BIG boy at around 70 pounds.

Aphrodite was taken from a horrible hoarding case. Where 60 pets were taken from awful living conditions. She is now ready for her forever home!!! She great with kids, and other dogs. A little shy at first but quickly warm up!!! 



Sweetie is a black domestic long hair cat who is as chill as a cat can be.  She loves just hanging around the office and laying in the sun. They have tried to take her to Petco, but she doesn’t seem to like it there.  She is a true homebody who would love to just chill with her family at the house.  


Cooper is a kind old man.  He is looking for someone to share his days with while he sniffs around the yard and soaks up some sun.  He is on the older side, but still loves to go outside and walk.  


Don’t let Dottie’s age or size fool you, this dog is ALL puppy!!
Dottie’s dream day would be running in the yard and going on walks.
She might not be good in a house with small children as she does not know her size (she thinks she is still the size of a puppy, but is more of a  medium sized dog).
When we have taken her out with other dogs, she gets along with most of them.
Dottie was picked up as a stray by Kershaw County Humane Society on March 8, 2021. Paws got her from there on March 16, 2021.


Lego is a young pup that loves to play. This young boy will need some direction as he has only lived in shelters. He will need you to be patient and persistent with him as he grows into being the best dog ever.


Molly is a fun loving 3 year old pit. She is currently being fostered and gets along with other dogs and kids. She has a lot of drive and loves to play. She walks nicely on a leash and is not reactive. She does tend to get a bit possessive of resources (balls, toys, ect), but with the right leadership and a bit of counter conditioning that should improve. She loves to zoom around the yard and get belly rubs.


Need a couch potato cuddle muffin who will clean up your crumbs? Look no further, Nellie is your girl.
A dream day for Nellie would be lounging around sharing some snacks. She is not picky on what shows you watch, as long as she can get some pets while you watch.
This loveable pup is spayed, microchipped and up to date on her vaccines. She has been dog friendly with most dogs we have had her interact with.


Rose is a light brown shepherd mix who was turned in by her owner.  She is a calm girl who reminds us of Nellie.  She is just looking for a couch to sit on, someone to sit with, and lots of pets.  


Do you like to throw balls?  Sadie LOVES to chase them and bring them back to you!  This adorable girl surprises us all when we take her out to the yard.  She will run after balls all day if given the chance.  She would make an excellent baseball family dog!  Her defensive skills are on point!  Anyone training with Sadie is bound to get better!


Shelly reminds us of that cranky old aunt we all had that was nice just to us.  Shelly is so sweet and calm when she is around humans, but she is not a fan of other dogs or cats.  Shelly loves to walk and lay in the grass.  She is an older dog (about 7) so all the puppy drama is done with her.  


Biscuit is a cool looking dog, mostly black husky mix with blue to almost white eyes.  Biscuit was born on Jan 1, 2021 adopted, then returned to Paws recently (so she might still be house trained).  She is a good listener and will even talk back sometimes, that is the husky in her.  


This is big boy Robert. He is a sweet 6 year old cat who was brought to Paws with his sister Catherine (no yet pictured). These 2 are looking for their forever home together where they can lay around and argue who has the better sun spot from across the room, just like any siblings would do. 


Love muffin. That is Ruthie. There is no other explanation. There is nothing more in this world that Ruthie wants to do more then cuddle, nuzzle, purr and give kisses. This cats main objective is to love and Ruthie is does it well.


Sassy Sassette!!! This sweet girl recently had surgery on her hip and has been hanging out in the office while she recovers. Sassette was being fostered, but due to her injury and her lack of training, she had to come back. Sassette needs a loving, patient household. She is still learning to walk on a leash and needs someone who will take their time with her while she learns the ropes of becoming a family member. She is super sweet and loving and won’t mind sharing a seat with you to cuddle.


This Boo is who Dua Lipa was talking about when she sang about a Sugar Boo.
Boo is a sweetheart who has the attitude of a smarty pants teenager. Boo will sometimes think he is too cool for you, but you both know he loves you. If he could say words, they would be “MOM!!! DAD!!! Stopppppppp!!!” then he would smile because you both know, you know?!?


Maci is one of the newest additions to the Paws family. He is part of a litter of 8. Mom was rescued while pregnant. Mom is a mutt, dad is a weaten terrier.
Maci loves to climb, so if you are looking for a partner on your outdoor adventures, Maci is your girl!
Maci is pending spay and has her surgery scheduled for June 28th. If you would like to adopt Maci before then, you can still keep her June 28th appointment, or you can sign a contract stating you will have the surgery done.


Damion does not know his size or his age. He is about 7 years old, but acts like he is 7 months old. He is on the larger side, but thinks he is a lap dog. He is just a big lovable doofy dog. Damion unfortunately wasn’t rescued from the best circumstances. Even still, he is one of the most loving affectionate dogs. He has never been properly house trained, so would need someone who is patient to teach him. We all think he would be the best farm dog. He loves to go on walks, run in the play yard and get petted.


Melissa doesn’t jiggle jiggle, she wiggle wiggles, in the grass. This girl LOVES grass. She rolls all around it in. She is such a happy girl with she is outside in the play field. She loves pets and walking too.
She is currently on medication for incontinence. She is the sweetest girl who just needs a home that has love, patience, someone to pet her, and grass. Sweet, sweet grass!


Do you like to throw tennis balls? Because Cosmo LOVES to chase them and bring them back. This handsome boy would be the prefect fit for someone who is active but can also rest with the best. This pup will play for however long you want and when you are done, he will snuggle right up on you. He is very sweet and affectionate, but does have a lot of energy. He would love someone who will walk him or play with him daily, but still have energy to give him pets. He is a giant love bug.


Hi, my name is Max. I am a German Shepherd mix and am a really good boy. I know a few commands like sit and come but I am eager to learn more. I am also a patient pup who is very attentive. One of my favorite things to do at PIPH is to run around in the play yard and go on walks! I love to chase frisbees and sticks. I am a people’s dog and I love to be around my two legged friends.. Oh, and I will do just about anything for a treat! Can you help me to find my forever home?
