McKamey Animal Center is not your average animal shelter.

We create a culture of compassionate care, community engagement and advocacy for animals by providing programs and education that support people and companion animals.

It is now Fall, and Bo is still awaiting his forever home! This senior dog has waited 74 days to find a family to live the rest of his life in. Bo is almost 9 years old and was found as a stray. It was very sad, as nobody ever came looking for this sweet soul. He's got some years on him, but that doesn't stop him from being a happy and playful guy! He loves to be around people and dogs alike! Bo really loves affection and getting out to stretch his legs. He prefers to walk on softer surfaces, and shorter walks are better. If your looking for a dog that will appreciate the fact you have given him a second chance, than pick Bo! He will be a great dog to lounge around with you and be a great companion.


Introducing Apollo! We took him on a trailblazing adventure today to Woofstock😊. He is a very easy going young fellow who has basic manners and is very gentle overall. He had his picture made for Chatter Magazine, Pet Cloud Photography and had a paw print made by two of the sweetest and most gentle young ladies❤️❤️❤️. He is great in the car and, as you might imagine, loves the water. He is a Hurricane Florence dog who is just hanging out waiting patiently for his forever home at Mckamey Animal Center. Go see him today!!!

A gentle giant. Meet Andre. He is only 3 weeks old but weighs in same as a 5 week old kitten, 1 lbs. He is looking for a foster family, cause even though he seems big he is still just a baby. He doesn't even have his teeth yet. If you are interested in fostering please email jlwilkison@mckameyanimalcenter.org
