about us

Baywater Animal Rescue

With more than 60 years of caring for and saving animals, Baywater Animal Rescue, a No Kill humane organization, is dedicated to the principle that every animal deserves to live. By working with people, implementing life-saving programs, and treating each life as precious, we have created an organization that positively effects the lives of countless animals and the people that care about them.

Baywater Animal Rescue, formerly known as the Dorchester County Humane Society, is an independent agency and does not receive any operating support from the government or national animal welfare groups. Our work is made possible only through the generosity of people like you. Together we can assure a better life for companion animals by providing shelter, finding loving homes and promoting respect for their place in our lives.

Our staff and volunteers save the lives of hundreds of dogs and cats each year. We partner with other rescue groups that transport dogs into the safety of our care from areas in the South where they would face a certain death. While animals are in our hands, they receive high-quality food, necessary medications and vaccinations, training and enrichment to keep them healthy until they are welcomed into their new home.

We also work to keep pets in their homes by providing resources for our community. We offer behavior counseling to help keep pets in homes and our pet food pantry offers food to those in need. We provide low-cost spay/neuter services by collaborating with veterinarians. Thousands of pets and people in our community are served each year through our efforts.
