If you need help finding pet friendly housing please reach out to us! If you know you are moving into a place that does not allow pets, reach out as soon as you know when you are moving- do not wait until it’s too late! When moving, ask the property manager for the breed restrictions beforehand.
Pet Food Pantry
Dorchester Paws has a donation based pantry for pet food that is open to anyone needing assistance within Dorchester County. Our supporters donate dog and cat food throughout the year for members of the public that need some help!

Have some cats hanging around?
Cats are all around in the community and can actually be beneficial. But, they need to be spayed/neutered! Dorchester Paws is committed to ending unnecessary euthanasia of healthy, feral cats by implementing TNR aka- Trap, Neuter, Release.
TNR clinics are held 1-2 times a month.
Our TNR clinic dates (no appointment required) will be on September 11th and October 4th
How it works:
- TNR clinics are first come first served for the FIRST 25 cats! Check in will be from 8am-8:30am. Please do not block the gate entrance.
- Only 2 cats per person.
- They MUST arrive in a trap- if they are not in a trap they will not be accepted.
- Cats must be from within Dorchester County.
- The fee is $25 per cat- this will include vaccines, ear tip, microchip, spay/neuter
You will pick up the cat you brought in that same day between 3-4:30pm.
Cats need to be released back to their exact location the following day.
We cannot accept personal pets- these resources are utilized for cats that don’t have a home. If you need assistance with your personal pet, please see the Community Support page for more resources
Traps can be rented from the Pet Support Department here at Dorchester Paws for $15! We are open from 12pm-5pm daily.
