Please plan on joining us for the up-coming events. They are a great way to not only support the S.P.C.A. but to meet other animal lovers in our community.

April 11th will be our Fourth Annual Golf Tournament at the Orangeburg Country Club. More information will be in future newsletters.

May 21st will bring a Fashion Show. This is a nonprofit, community event in which all proceeds will benefit the Orangeburg SPCA & Compassion In Action (CIA). It will be held at Cornerstone Community Church and runs from 11:00AM-5:00PM. Any one interested in participating, in either the fashion show or as a vendor, please contact Lauren Tourville at their website Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children. Some of our canine models will be strutting their stuff along with the human models. This event has been rescheduled from March.

Some of the other events we are planning or participating in are a huge yard sale, Bark-In-The-Park, our annual fundraiser in the fall, an open house, and a few other events that we are trying to finalize.


Limited number of owner turn-ins

Because of the new rules implemented by Orangeburg County Animal Control, the S.P.C.A. is now accepting a limited number of owner turn-ins. A form can be picked up at the S.P.C.A., filled out, and then returned. You will then be notified of an appointment time to bring your animal in and have a behavior assessment done. We ask that you have all the medical records pertaining to the animal with you at that time. Unfortunately, there is limited space and you should try all other options before contacting us. Also, if we are full and do accept your animal, there may be a waiting period for an opening before we can bring your animal into our shelter. There will be a turn-in fee charged to cover the costs involved with not only getting the animal ready for adoption but also for the upkeep until it is adopted.


Student Internship

Don’t forget our student intern program. This innovative program provides students with a challenging yet rewarding experience for those who desire to learn more about the day-to-day operations of the animal shelter. Their participation ensures that they are educated about the basic tenets of properly handling animals, and assist with the daily hands on care of bathing, vaccinating and socializing the animals in our shelter. We hope that this alliance will help the students enhance their skills and support them in their goals of gaining employment. If you are interested in learning more about how your high school might enroll in our student intern program or if your child is home schooled and you are interested, please call Dr. Sheila Gregory at 803-928-2778 or email her at
