Featured Adoptable: Rho Rho is ready to spread some Canine Cheer! This sweetheart came to CCA after being found as a stray along with her sister, Delta. After a couple trips to the vet for the usual, they were ready to go to their perfect home. Delta was adopted and now it's time for Rho to go home, too. We think she's a mix of Laborador Retriever and Great Dane. That’s lots of love!
For more information about Delta and Rho, or to schedule a visit with these wonderful girls, please just give us a call at 864-243-4222. You can also email your request: email@example.com
We're partnering with Build-A-Bear!!

With the sale of each full-sized Bearemy’s Kennel Pals® friend -- a collection of Build‑A‑Bear Workshop® plush dogs -- one dollar is donated to domestic pet programs including local animal shelters, stray pet rescue and rehabilitation organizations, and pet education programs around the country. These funds are available to qualified non-profit organizations in the United States and Canada.

Every time you go directly to a participating GoodShop store, the toolbar will highlight what percentage of your purchase will be donated to your cause and if any coupons are available!
Please note, a handful of merchants still require that you visit GoodShop first and click through to the store. This will be apparent because the donation button will not light up. For Amazon and eBay, you can simply click on the icon on the toolbar to get to the sites.
A Rescuer's Creed
I shall be a believer of all that is good in man and of all that is deserving in animals. I shall plead for their lives, campaign for their safety and uphold their right to a natural death. I shall seek out the injured and the maimed, the unloved, and the abandoned and tend to them in their last days. I shall not forget their place in the hierarchy of life, nor that we walk in each other's paths. I shall bear witness to the wonder they bring into our lives and to the beauty they bestow upon our souls.
I shall renew their spirits when they are waning, bind their wounds when they bleed, cradle them when they whimper, and comfort them when they mourn. I shall be near them in their hour of greatest need - a companion and friend when the time has come. I shall watch over them and console them and ask that the angels gather them in their arms. From the creatures of the earth I shall learn the fruits of compassion and undying love, and I shall be called the beloved of God.
In their company I shall indeed be blessed. ~Susan M.Pearson
