Sav-R-Cats International, Inc. (Surfside Beach, South Carolina 29575) was founded in 2002 as a non-profit organization whose primary goal is to ensure the protection, safeguarding and humane treatment of cats. To accomplish that goal, we depend entirely on the contributions of cat lovers and caring individuals and groups – and we invite you to join us. You can become a member of Sav-R-Cats International with a tax-free contribution of as little as $25.


Sav-R-Cats is run by volunteers who care about helping our feline friends. We run an adoption center, located in Surfside Beach, SC, feed and care for numerous feral colonies and practice TNR (trap-neuter-return) for feral cats in the community. We believe in the practice of spaying and neutering cats as soon as they are at the proper weight (and that they are healthy enough) to prevent the birth of unwanted kittens. Together we can make a change.

Too often, cats are abused, left to fend for themselves and are abandoned. All animals, especially cats, need careful handling, proper diet and tender loving care. Cats that are brought into our shelter must receive the same the treatment and respect as domesticated pets of all kinds. Feral cats, who live in colonies, receive daily feeding from volunteers and loving care every day of the year.

We are dedicated to ensuring that all cats are treated humanely and given a chance to live – to brighten a child’s smile and bring companionship and comfort to someone who needs it! We have cats available for adoption at our center and in foster homes and are always in need of volunteers to help at the center, assist with the TNR program and help with fundraising.

Founded in 1980, Concerned Citizens for Animals (Simpsonville, South Carolina 29681) is celebrating 36 years of improving the lives of homeless animals in the Upstate. Through our shelter operation and a variety of community service programs, CCA offers a second chance to neglected, stray, and abandoned animals.


As the oldest no-kill shelter in the Upstate, CCA provides treatment, care, and a safe haven for its residents until loving homes are found. All animals are also spayed or neutered. Prospective homes are screened, references are checked, and home visits made to ensure the animals are placed with responsible, caring individuals and families.

CCA’s Feral Cat Program employs the TNR (trap, neuter, and release) process to assist feral cat colony caretakers in maintaining the health of the colony and curbing the colony’s growth. Our Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program is effective in alleviating animal suffering by reducing the number of unwanted canine and feline births in the Upstate.

The combined efforts of an involved management team, a dedicated caretaker, and an active volunteer force create a powerful influence in the lives of those animals in our care and those in the community we serve.

Bald Is Beautiful Hairless and Small Breed Rescue, Inc. (Greenville, South Carolina 29604) is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Layout 1

Bald is Beautiful is an independent rescue whose members – all volunteers – have over 25 years of combined experience in the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs in need. Their members’ reasons for being involved in rescue are varied, from being compassionate lifetime dog lovers to having bought that “cute little puppy in the window” only to have their hearts broken when the puppies became ill from being born to sick mothers kept in deplorable conditions. Or when they sadly discovered that the “home raised” pups were, in reality, puppy mill puppies.

Whatever brought the members to BisB, they stay because they have seen their hard work and dedication pay off in changing the lives of so many deserving dogs.

Dogs In Danger believes in the power of compassion, and that Americans would do more to help and adopt shelter dogs, if only they knew how many dogs shelters were forced to euthanize.

Dogs In Danger is a non-profit national shelter outreach program at the forefront of a grassroots movement trying to help shelters save the lives of millions of innocent dogs.

Shelters are the last line for millions of innocent dogs. The public has no idea of the magnitude of this national tragedy. The sad reality is that over four million dogs are killed each year in shelters. Why, in a country of dog lovers, are so many dogs homeless? Because their families abandon them, for reasons like job change, divorce, and new baby… and most shelters don’t have the necessary programs to get the dogs the exposure they need to find new homes. Shelters find homes for many dogs, but millions are euthanized. For far too long we have been told there is no other way.

Dogs In Danger believes in the power of compassion, and that Americans would do more to help and adopt shelter dogs, if only they knew how many dogs shelters were forced to euthanize. Dogs In Danger also believes that shelters don’t really want to euthanize dogs, if they had any other option. Simply put, Dogs In Danger has chosen a path of technology as a means of connecting these scared, abandoned shelter dogs with the loving homes they deserve. As a nonprofit organization, Dogs In Danger seeks no other gain except for the happiness in the face of a dog as he faithfully walks out through the shelter doors, in perfect step with his loving new family.
