SCACCA provides evaluations for shelters and will discuss recommended improvements.  Evaluations cover a variety of areas including:

  • Housing
  • Facility
  • Layout
  • Sanitation
  • Disease control
  • Record keeping
  • Policy and procedures
  • Organization
  • and more

There is a nominal fee for this service to cover travel expenses.  This inexpensive service is a great way to gain helpful tips in an effort to continually improve your shelter and its services so that you may better serve the animals and people in your community.

For more information or to schedule your evaluation, please contact any Board Member.



SCACCA is pleased to provide scholarships to its members for educational/training opportunities for SCACCA sponsored events to include but not limited to:

To apply for any scholarship you must be a current member of the South Carolina Animal Care & Control Association (SCACCA).

Applications are accepted on a first come first serve basis and are considered by the committee through a review process.  A deadline to submit an application will be placed on each event eligible.

Scholarship recipients will be required to write a follow-up report on the training they received.

An individual or agency member may receive scholarship funds only once during a 12 month period.
