MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) — News13’s Mascot of the Weekend for January 21 and 22 is Patton, a 3-year-old dog from the Grand Strand Humane Society.
Patton has been with GSHS for about a month, according to Kathy Robinson, a GSHS spokesperson. He is looking for his forever home after being handed over to the shelter.
“He has a lot of energy, he’s a good boy and he obviously loves toys,” Robinson said. “Hopefully his forever home has lots of toys.”
According to Robinson, a new daycare for dogs called Kameron K9’s Doggy Care and Grooming, located on George Bishop Parkway, will have a grand opening from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. GSHS dogs will be present at the event.
The GSHS has implemented a new procedure for Saturday dog adoptions. Open adoptions will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Saturday, Robinson said.
Adoption applications can be submitted online in advance or in person at the shelter.
