I’m kinda scared here. The other dogs here seem mostly nice but they sure do bark a lot. I’m just six months old and they scare me sometimes.
My name’s Reggie. I’m a lab mix. I really love humans. I give kisses and I love to run and play and I really, really want a family of my very own. It would be so nice to snuggle and feel safe and not be scared anymore. I’d love my family with my whole heart. I’m trying to say all of that with my eyes because I can’t talk. I hope you can see it.
I hope there’s a family who needs me. If you think you need me, please call Laurens County (SC) Animal Control at (864)984-6812 to get more information.
And please SHARE my photo. Maybe someone will love me.
A double nice WLBG Pet of the Week.
Meet Penny and Bella (Penny is the one with the most white on her head). These beautiful girls are about 8 months old and they’re lab/pit mix. Both are pure sweethearts……..they especially love children.
I know…….some will see pit mix and be afraid. Don’t be. Back in the 50’s pits were called ‘nanny dogs’ and were sought after to help raise younguns. Gentle as a lamb with those kids. Fierce as a lion should anything or anyone pose a threat to ‘their’ children. Remember Little Rascals?
Penny and Bella are available for adoption today at Laurens County (SC) Animal Control. Call 864-984-6812 for more information.
And please SHARE this photo of the girls. They need a home and they are beautiful.
UPDATE: TUE 08/23/16 1745
Bear has a home. He was adopted this afternoon. He’s enjoying his new home already. Thanks to all who assisted.
The prevailing wisdom is that a chow will be an aggressive dog. Well, here we have a chow mix who defies logic.
He’s 3 years old, we’ve been calling him Bear and he didn’t get the memo about being mean. He’s what we know as a Big Ol’ Baby.
He’s available for adoption at Laurens County Animal Control. He needs a home PDQ. For more info on Bear cal 864-984-6812. Ask about the WLBG Pet of the Week.
And please SHARE his photo. Surely someone wants a Big Ol’ Baby.
In Laurens County SC we have a lot of good people. They’d give you the shirt off their back. They’ll happily go out of their way to help someone or even a little dog in need. But we also have a few humans who are capable of this.
I’m gonna call him Pinky. He was found this morning in a dumpster near Laurens Terrace Apartments…..tied up in a plastic bag……and tossed into a dumpster. He’s a little pit puppy and has a badly broken rear leg.
Forget displaying anger toward the unknown punk who decided to prove he was a man by doing this to a 6 week old puppy. That won’t help Pinky.
If there is someone, anyone who can help Pinky please contact Laurens County (SC) Animal Control right away. The county does not have the funds to help Pinky. He needs a good veterinarian. He’s hurting and this needs to be done lightning quick. If not, the humane thing to do is to end his hurting.
Call (864)984-6812 for more information on how you can help. A rescue group that wants to be Pinky’s miracle would be an answer to prayer.
Please SHARE. Please. Pinky needs a miracle fast.
I like this dog. He looks like he’s saying “Come on! Let’s GO!”
His name is Charlie and he’s available for adoption at Laurens County (SC) Animal Control.
Charlie is a boy dog a little over one year old. He’s a good dog and he loves peoples. And I just love his look. Charlie’s a classic, you might say.
If you’d like more information on Charlie call Animal Control at (864)984-6812.
And please SHARE. Charlie would really like to have his very own family and I think he deserves that.
This pretty girl is named Holly. She’s about 7 years old and she is NOT at Laurens County Animal Control…………Holly can be found at the Laurens County Humane Society.
Holly was originally surrendered to Animal Control due to the death of her owner. The Humane Society took her in when her time was up to prevent…………well………you know what.
So, Holly is not in danger of being put down. She’s in a ‘no kill’ facility. But Holly needs a home. She has spent her whole life loving humans. She still does. She just needs a human of her very own.
Now, Holly does not play well with other dogs. She has to be an one and only dog. She was heart worm positive but she has successfully completed treatments and she’s now free of that concern.
If you would like more information on Holly for yourself or for a rescue group, call the Humane Society (864)833-9060.
And please SHARE Holly’s picture. She just needs somebody to love.
We have enjoyed success lately with the WLBG Pet of the Week. Let’s hope our luck holds.

Oh Dolly………..come one. Smile please.
Dolly was dropped at a local veterinarian’s office. When I say dropped off I mean………forever. Look at her eyes. She’s trying to tell us what happened to her.
Dolly is about a year old and she’s now at Laurens SC Animal Control and available for adoption. Shots and spaying have been taken care of so there is a ZERO dollar adoption fee for Dolly.

This is a sad story.
Lucy is 12 years old. She lived her whole life on a chain until 4 weeks ago when her owners turned her over to Laurens County (SC) Animal Control.
While on that chain, kids would throw rocks at Lucy. Guess what? Lucy became mean. Maybe that’s why her owners didn’t want her anymore. Lucy arrived at Animal Control and everyone there knew that Lucy would be put down and maybe………well, maybe that was for the best.
Then something strange began to happen. Lucy began to change. She wags her tail now. She craves human contact now. Nobody is throwing rocks at her. The people at Animal Control talk softly to her. They feed her, even scratch her behind the ears. Now, Lucy wants to live.
But, she’s been there 4 weeks and her time is up. This will be a tall order but our Animal Control officers want us to try. It would break their hearts to have to put Lucy down now.
Lucy has been an outside dog all her life so that’s fine but……….no chain. And Lucy will end up a gentle, loving soul but just 4 weeks ago she was a mean dog so……no small children. And she’s 12 years old.
So, we have to find someone who loves old dogs, wants to see an old girl finally learn to smile and has a fenced yard and no small kids. Impossible?…………maybe……….but we’re going to try. We just a few days. The shelter is open Monday through Saturday near the Laurens County Airport. The phone number there is (864)682-4935.
And please SHARE far and wide. Maybe there is that special someone out there who will let Lucy know that humans can love………can love even an old dog who has only known chains. Good luck Lucy. We’re all pulling for you.
This is Clyde. If Clyde looks sad and a bit confused……..he is.
You see, Clyde had a home but then his owner’s landlord said that Clyde looked like he had some pit bull in him and Clyde had to go. He ended up at Laurens County Animal Control. They’re nice folks there but the shelter is full. Clyde says he needs a home.
I hope Clyde’s luck gets better. He’s about 8 months old and he’s a very good boy. Would you like a full blooded Clyde? Call Animal Control for more information….(864) 682-4935l
And please SHARE. Like I said…….the shelter if full. We gotta get Clyde outta there and quick.
Good luck Clyde.
I’m gonna call her Daisy. She’s a sweetheart. She’s mostly German Shepherd and about 18 months old. She has just been spayed and will soon have the stitches out.
Because she’s up to date on shots has been fixed there is NO adoption fee. Daisy is a sweetheart but she doesn’t like cats and she kinda gets freaked by small dogs…….gets along well with dogs more her size.
And Daisy is a life worth saving. The shelter is full. In just 2 and 1/2 days NINE dogs have been taken to Animal Control and left there by their owners. That puppy that was a Christmas gift? Reality has set in and they don’t want the responsibility of pet ownership so……….off to the shelter. And by the way, this is NOT a no kill facility. With the shelter full…….well, you get the picture.
If you’d like to know more about Daisy or discuss adoption, call Laurens County (SC) Animal Control. (864)682-4935.
Spread the word. She’s a life worth saving.
