Southern Tails for Precious Paws is a 501c3 nonprofit, 100% volunteer, foster based rescue founded in 2016 by Lisa Guido. Based on Johns Island, SC, we were born out of the realization that shelters in rural South Carolina are overflowing with great dogs with little to no hopes of adoption traffic. The mass quantities of dogs, from puppies to seniors, outnumber the availability of medical resources, staffing help, and financial assistance available to rural county shelters. Our goal is to rescue these dogs, provide for their health and socialization needs, and give them the exposure needed to showcase their adoptability. We do not discriminate, rescuing dogs of all ages, breeds, & medical conditions. We believe that every paw has a tale to tell.
