Review for Animal Shelter of Clarendon County, Manning, SC, USA
I became involved with the Second Chance Animal Shelter, formerly known as the Animal Shelter of Clarendon County some ten or more years back when a stray dog in my neighborhood was hit by a car right in front of my house. My husband was at work that evening. It was a painful experience hearing that harmless creature moaning aloud suffering from whatever injury he was enduring, I felt helpless that I could do nothing to relieve his suffering. There was no animal shelter at that time for Clarendon County, and the local police had no authority to serve the country area that I resided at the time. I knew he needed to be helped or put out of his misery, and at the time my knowledge of gun use did not exist to do something humane,nor a nearby neighbor. I had to wait out his dying in quiet of the night, feeling miserable and guilty for doing nothing but crying in despair,
That terrible experience led me to join a group of Manning animal lovers in their determined effort to build an animal shelter in our county. At least I could have called friends or associates with the shelter for advice or assistance, It was a long arduous journey that took several years to accomplish, but this is my story as one of the co-founders of the Animal Shelter of Clarendon County, still going strong and helping homeless dogs and cats.
