DORCHESTER, S.C. (WCBD) – Dorchester Paws wants the public to know that they are still open and helping animals in need, despite some changes to normal operations.

The staff is taking extreme measures to ensure customer and crew safety. The shelter is open for adoptions by appointment only, and appointments are staggered to limit the number of people at the shelter. Appointments will take place outside, and six feet social distancing guidelines will be followed, according to Dorchester Paws.
