Pet of the Week

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - There are hundreds of unwanted pets here in the Midlands who need a good home.  Each Tuesday on the News at Noon we are profiling a pet that needs your help.

There are also many good humans who work hard to find a place for homeless dogs and cats.  We'll also have information about the different pet aid agencies including programs like spay and neuter clinics to help control the pet population.
