Our shelter was established in 1972 to provide a safe haven for stray, abandoned, abused or lost pets. It's named for Frances R. Willis, who brought the SPCA to Dorchester County and founded the shelter. Kapstone, the lumber company, donated the land for the current SPCA facility. Dr. Brunson Westbury worked with Frances R. Willis to get the road built and land cleared to open the facility.

The Frances R. Willis SPCA serves the lost, abandoned and abused animals of Dorchester County including Rosinville, Harleyville, Ridgeville, Oakbrook, St. George, Summerville, and Grover.

Over the years we have expanded our facility, but we continue to reach our capacity because our community is growing and because the pet overpopulation crisis is not abating. In 2010 the shelter served 4,100 homeless or unwanted animals and our Live Release Rate was 46 percent. SPCA staff and volunteers are working hard to spread the news about pet adoption, spaying and neutering, and responsible pet ownership.

The SPCA conducts an aggressive spay/neuter program with all animals receiving spay/neuter surgery before they are adopted to loving and forever homes. The Frances R. Willis SPCA works in partnership with the Charleston Animal Society to make this spay/neuter program a success.

With a young, dynamic staff and a corps of dedicated volunteers, foster homes and YOUR SUPPORT, the shelter is poised to make significant improvements for animal welfare in Dorchester County.

Due to the overcrowding at the SPCA, cat/kitten adoption prices have been reduced. Adult cats are $25 each and kittens are $50 each. Prices include testing and vaccinations, microchip, de-worming and spay/neuter surgery. Stop by the SPCA and find your furrrever friend! There are felines of all shapes and sizes waiting for a loving and forever home. To learn more visit and click on the Adoptable Cats tab!
