About the Lancaster South Carolina SPCA Rescue Organization


Founded in July 2013, the Lancaster South Carolina Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (LSPCA) is a nonprofit animal rescue organization dedicated to saving unwanted dogs, puppies, cats and kittens in the Lancaster County area, as well as surrounding counties if in urgent need. We take in owner-surrendered animals, shelter animals and abandoned and neglected animals. Once rescued, we ensure each receives the best possible veterinary care, then focus on getting those animals temporarily fostered until adopted into a "furever home."


Our Mission

  • To build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness.


  • To act as an advocate on behalf of all animals to lend them a voice in the community concerning legislation and protections under the law to ensure those who mistreat, dump, abandon or fail to provide medical care are prosecuted. We strive to eliminate animal cruelty, dog fighting, puppy mills and the like to protect animals from inhumane treatment. 


  • Provide educational school programs to promote the ethical treatment of animals and the importance of spay/neuter.


  • Promote spay/neuter programs within the community to help control the overpopulation of unwanted and discarded pets to reduce, and ultimately eliminate, euthanasia within our shelters.


  • Provide services and resources for community residents to assist in the proper care of pets, including low-cost veterinary services, pet food distribution, and animal-care education. 


  • Provide care and fostering for animals who are critical medical cases and those in immediate need or danger.


  • We strive to work with area shelters and partner with other rescue organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers to find loving homes for shelter animals and medical cases that are ready to be adopted.


Service Area
