Review for The Humane Society of McCormick County, McCormick, SC, USA
When I retired I moved to a very rural area of the south. I learned there was a small, all volunteer group of retirees who formed an animal rescue. They did this because there is no animal control, no veterinary services and no county help for unwanted or lost pets. I began by walking dogs, cleaning up after them and playing with them. They gave me so much joy from the tiniest puppy to the biggest goofball. I soon began volunteering my Saturday's to travel by caravan with all the dogs. It takes us just under an hour and a half to reach a decent sized pet store. There we wait in anticipation to see who would find their forever home.
Nothing brings me more satisfaction to follow an animal from a skinny, flea ridden and often times shy, mangy dog, to a warm and happy home. We have endless hours of fundraising and when necessary pitch in to buy gas, food and veterinary supplies to make ends meet.
This is a meaningful way to spend my time and gives me an opportunity to give back to those who were lost. I’m glad I found the Humane Society of McCormick County.
