Southern Pines Animal Shelter is proud to be a partner of PetSmart Charities and Rescue Waggin'. The Rescue Waggin’ program is a unique shelter transport program that moves adoptable dogs from shelters with high areas of pet overpopulation to shelters where adoptable dogs are more in demand. In 2014, over 1200 dogs and puppies were transported to partner shelters through this life-saving program, and 2015 looks to be an even more successful year!
Southern Pines is proud to be a Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network Partner. Through this partnership, Southern Pines is able to network with other shelters, offer increased adoption programs, and work towards the goal of decreasing shelter euthanasia.
Southern Pines is proud to be a Petco Adoption Partner. Our partnership with the Petco Foundation has allowed us to increase lives saved through offsite adoption events and through adoption events funded through life-saving grants.

In July 2008 the Shelter began feeding Hill’s Science Diet exclusively to the animals under its care and recommending it to all adopters. Thank you to the generous donors who made this possible! Feeding a consistent high quality food helps keep shelter pets healthier, and it stops the stomach upset and diarrhea caused from using a variety of donated foods.
Southern Pines is proud to serve as an Emergency Placement Partner for the Humane Society of the United States. Emergency Placement Partners are part of a national mission to save animals from abuse. They are animal shelters, rescue groups, and other humane organizations who choose to join the HSUS national network targeting large-scale animal-abuse cases—from hoarding situations to animal fighting or puppy mill operations.
Southern Pines was proud to participate in the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray 100k Challenge. After placing first in our division and saving more lives than ever before, Southern Pines was lucky to be the recipient of $51,000 in grant funding to continue creating and implementing life saving programs. This funding has allowed Southern Pines to hold a variety of adoption promotions and continue increasing the number of lives saved in 2015.
