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 dogs 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 dogs. We want to ensure a good match between dog and potential adopter to deter a repeat shelter situation for our rescues, so we are careful in our adoption process.

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