Thank you for visiting Southern Paws Animal Rescue (SPAR), a passionate and committed 501c3 operating in Mount Pleasant SC and Lake Lure, NC, working to save animals of any breed from neglect, abuse, abandonment and dangerous or unhealthy living environments. Our goal is to restore each animal to health so that they are ready for a loving, lifetime home. We work with veterinarians to vaccinate, spay/neuter, heartworm test, and provide any necessary medical treatment for each dog. SPAR collects donations through various means - public events, individual donations, and adoption donations or fees to assist in the care of our animals. We want to ensure a good match between each pet and their potential adopter to deter a repeat shelter situation for our rescues, so we are careful in our adoption process. If any of our animals are not adopted, they will live out their lives being loved at our sanctuary.

Our site is currently under development but we do list our available animals on Please take a moment to view our adoptables and if you see a new best friend on your screen, please get in touch!

We have wonderful trainers that evaluate each animal and work on their social skills and basic training.

Here are just a few of our amazing animals that were given a second chance!

* Grover when we rescued him and today - this sweet baby boy is so forgiving!

* Stella went from being paralyzed to a miraculous recovery and finding the perfect home!

We have so many success stories and all because you helped us continue our dream of saving animals. It takes a village and we thank you for being a part of our village.
