About Dorchester Paws
Dorchester Paws, formerly known as Frances R. Willis SPCA, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals in Dorchester County, South Carolina. Dorchester Paws is the only open-admission shelter in Dorchester County, serving towns including Rosinville, Ridgeville, Oakbrook, St. George, Summerville and Grover, SC. Partnering with Dorchester Code Enforcement, we take in every lost, abandoned and abused animal and provide them with food, shelter and medical attention until they find their forever home.
We envision a world where every animal goes on the journey from victim to victory.
- Ending unnecessary euthanasia and giving every animal a second chance
- Combating overpopulation by encouraging spaying and neutering
- Championing responsible pet ownership through public education
- Feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless and protecting the abused
- Reuniting lost pets with their families and finding homes for strays
