Pet Haven of South Carolina

Pet Haven of South Carolina (PHSC) is a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status pending. We are dedicated to the preservation and welfare of all felines and canines, as well as all other domestic animals. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff positions. Our efforts are funded solely through donations and private funds.

Our Mission
It is our mission to provide a safe haven for our community’s abused and abandoned cats and dogs, with the goal of rehabilitation and adoption into permanent loving homes. As a NO-KILL shelter, all animals accepted into the shelter remain under the stewardship of Pet Haven of South Carolina, until they are adopted. We will only consider euthanasia when recommended by a veterinarian to relieve an animal's suffering due to irreversible injury, illness or disease.

We encourage and promote spaying and neutering as the only effective approach to reducing the pet overpopulation problem. In compliance with state law and as a matter of principal, we spay and neuter all pets prior to adoption. Pet Haven of South Carolina provides lost and found services and educates the public on the proper care of animals through printed materials and educational activities. We pursue all reports of abuse, neglect or cruelty and cooperate with law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of such cases. We support the efforts of South Carolina's Law Enforcement agencies, Animal Control departments and Humane Society Chapters to provide fair treatment and care for all domestic animals in the State of South Carolina.

PHSC offers shelter, care and sanctuary at our NO-KILL facility for abandoned, abused and/or neglected felines and canines, as well as - if the need arises - other domestic animals as well as feral cats/stray dogs.
We provide a safe environment for animals that have endured starvation, neglect and/or physical abuse or abandonment. Each animal receives medical attention and daily positive human contact. We strive to rehabilitate each animal in the hopes that we can locate responsible, caring and loving forever homes.

Pet Haven of South Carolina is dedicated to preventing cruelty to, relieving the suffering of, and providing humane treatment for animals. Our goal is to not only strengthen the bond but also the understanding between animals and humans. Pet Haven of South Carolina is not funded by local or state government.

“What sorrow awaits you shepherds who feed yourselves instead of your flocks. Shouldn’t shepherds feed their sheep? You drink the milk, wear the wool, and butcher the best animals, but you let your flocks starve. You have not taken care of the weak. You have not tended the sick or bound up the injured. You have not gone looking for those who have wandered away and are lost. Instead, you have ruled them with harshness and cruelty”
(Ezekiel 34:2-4 2).

Another example of God’s displeasure at cruelty to animals is found in Proverbs 12:10: “The godly are concerned for the welfare of their animals, but even the kindness of the wicked is cruel.” God calls cruelty to animals wicked.

Finally, God rebuked Balaam for beating his donkey, when that donkey was trying to save his life.
“Why did you beat your donkey those three times?” the angel of the Lord demanded. “Look, I have come to block your way because you are stubbornly resisting me. Three times the donkey saw me and shied away; otherwise, I would certainly have killed you by now and spared the donkey” (Numbers 22:32-33).

Balaam was about to be killed by the Lord, and God was using that donkey to try and save his life. This is a great testimony to how God values animals, and will even use them to try and save man from His judgment.
