(38)

Welcome to The Animal Advocate Facebook! The Animal Advocates is a non-profit charitable organization made up of volunteers from diverse backgrounds and ages. The common thread that binds us together is our dedication to rescuing, healing, safeguarding and giving new life to animals in need. Each day we are touched by the animals that we help and are saddened by the stories that come with them. These animals may never forget their unfortunate pasts, but we want to insure that their futures are filled with hope and that they are given the second chance that they all deserve. As President of The Animal Advocates since 2005, I have had the opportunity to see first-hand the great things that are accomplished each day by our organization. We are blessed to have a dedicated staff and volunteers that understand our mission and truly want to make a difference in the lives of the animals in Barnwell County. Their efforts have certainly had a definite impact on our success. I also commend our Board of Directors for their dedication in supporting our organization by sharing their expertise, time, talents, and leadership. Their resolve and determination to stay true to our mission and values has been remarkable. I am deeply proud, honored, and humbled to be a part of The Animal Advocates organization. We invite YOU to join us in our efforts and assist us in accomplishing our mission and goals for the animals in Barnwell County. Never doubt that a small group of caring and committed people can make a difference. We CAN change the world by starting in our own little corner of it! TOGETHER, we CAN make a difference! A Friend for Life, Vikki Scott, President Learn more about the NEW Foster & Adoption Center!

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. **This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer**

Tissa and Tab are two of the sweetest beagles you will ever meet! They are about 6 years old, and very attached to one another so we would love for them to be able to find a home together. They do not have the usual Beagle tendency of barking, but are in fact rather quiet and shy. Their easy going personalites make them a pleasure to be around and they will make a great addition to any household. They are currently at our foster facility, so please contact us if you are interested in meeting these gorgeous girls!

This gorgeous boy is patiently waiting for someone to take him home and love on him forever. His name is Goofy, and he is 60 pounds of pure love! But don't let the name fool you, while he can be complete goofball he is also extremely intelligent. He knows how to open fences and he can jump over them as well. He will require an experienced owner with a very high fence. Please stop by to take a look at our sweet Goofy!

"Hi, Facebook friends!

"My name is Buddy, but I sometimes get called "Beau." My doggie mommy was a Boston Terrier and my daddy was a Dachshund, so I'm a mix between adorable and adorable (which makes me DOUBLE adorable!). Unfortunately, my people parents passed away, so I'm looking for new "roommates" to share with me fun car rides, squirrel chases, and, of course, some good ol' fashioned cuddle time!

"If you think you might be interested, all you have to do is call the Friends for Life Center at (803) 259-5483. Hurry up and call - I don't bite!"
