Intake Policy

Saint Frances is contracted with the City of Georgetown and the County of Georgetown to intake all animals they pick up. This includes court cases, hoarding cases, abandoned and strays.

Saint Frances must keep kennels open at all times for contracted intake. Saint Frances only houses dogs and cats.

Space is ALWAYS limited, and we cannot accept all animals. Animals are accepted on a space available basis or if a determination is made that the welfare of the animal is in jeopardy. You must make an appointment to bring your animal into Saint Frances.

Please call the front desk at (843) 546-0780 or email kkowens@sfanimals.org to make an appointment.

If you are returning an animal that was previously adopted from us, please call (843) 546-0780 to arrange the return.
