Cofounders of SSS
We have been friends and lived with our families in Sumter, SC since 1995. Our love for dogs and an empty nest caused us to seek volunteer work at the Sumter Animal Control in 2013. It all started as a few hours a week walking dogs and cleaning kennels. Seeing a great need for a better way to save the adoptable dogs from the euthanasia list we formed Saving Sumter’s Strays in 2016. We have found our passion with this labor of love and are overjoyed when homeless dogs are rescued and find families to love them.
