It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Got Questions? Well come on in and sniff down.

Who
Who We Are

For over 20 years, Charlie Dieterich & Pet Haven of South Carolina, have taken helpless and hopeless animals, under their wings.

The time Charlie, himself, has devoted to saving animals - is far beyond what most people can understand, or even believe. 

"Who We Are", is not a large group of people, with infinite time and resources.

"We", is Charlie – with the help of his wife, Gina, and his assistant, Robin.

Charlie has consistently and persistently sacrificed his time and resources, for the sake of animals. Every single day, for decades.

Charlie deserves a world of credit and support... but he won't even mention it, unless he is asked to. (like Here)

“And why should I believe this?" 

I think it is vital to address that question, as there was a time that I myself, doubted.  It is natural to be skeptical of anything or anyone, that has a "donate" button.  Hey, the bad apples of the world have done a good job making us all skeptics.

"So, how can I be certain of the legitimacy of Pet Haven?"

I'm so glad you asked!  One simple phone call to the Wade Hampton Veterinarian Clinic, (the vet Charlie takes his rescues to), will do the trick.

864-244-1658

(You can even the # click to call, if you're on a mobile phone.)

You could ask them something like, “About how many receipts for animal treatments, has SC Pet Haven had over the last few years.  Ten? Fifty? Over a hundred?”.

I encourage you to ask, but do yourself a favor... sit down first.

Charlie took notice of this injustice and needs of animals, and did something about it.

He has dedicated his time, resources, home, and life - to the needs of animals.

If SC Pet Haven doesn't deserve the community's trust and support... I truly do not know who does.

“Who are YOU, anyway?" 

Nobody special. 

...Honesty shouldn't be special.

What

What We Do


Charlie uses a trapping system, to cage animals - near restaurant dumpsters in alleyways, where homeless animals tend to seek food.

While the word "trapping", at first, may sound inhumane, the truth is entirely the opposite. 

Charlie doesn't capture to kill, he captures to care

Pet Haven ensures each dog or cat, without exception, is provided the following:

• prompt medical evaluation, vaccinations and all needed treatment from a licensed and certified veterinarian

• nourishment and ongoing practical care and shelter from the outdoors

• love, affection, attention, and socialization a clean bill of health and temperament, prior to being placed on our Current Adoptable Pets page

What We Do NOT Do


• We do not take owner surrendered animals, as this is not listed in our charter

• If it has to do with abuse, whether physical or psychological... yeah, we don't do that 

• Leave animals outside and/or unattended - even when they're going to potty, they are watched. Of course, if they are embarrassed we will give them privacy, but that has not happened yet

When

When We Do It


That's a simple one:

consistently and persistently

all the time...

especially when it rains.
