Camden native and animal rescue advocate Sandy DuBose has donated her farm, Sandy Dubose Farm, located on Community Center Road, to Fostering Foster Animal Rescue.

“For many years, this land has provided for and blessed me with a fruitful life,” DuBose said. “I want to know that that it will be used for the benefit of animals for years to come. I trust Fostering Foster to make sure that happens.”

According to a Fostering Foster press release, mature pecan trees and green pastures adorn the landscape of Dubose’s farm. The paddocks onsite have a history of housing champion racehorses. Now, thanks to DuBose and the more than 20 acres she donated, even more dogs will have a new chance at life, Andrea Walker, Fostering Foster founder and president said.

“Sandy’s gift is truly a life changing donation for our organization,” Walker said. “And her willingness to let us begin using her farm now means we can save even more dogs in need of loving homes.”

Walker, also a Camden native, formed the volunteer-based animal rescue in 2012, which later became a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 2015. Since that time, Fostering Foster and its large group of volunteers have rescued, fostered and placed more than 3,000 dogs from Kershaw and other nearby counties that were at high risk of being euthanized or homeless.

“We are beyond blessed to have Sandy’s support and thankful for her passion to save animals. We are honored she chose Fostering Foster Animal Rescue to carry on her dreams of helping animals,” Walker said.

In July, Fostering Foster stepped up and volunteered to help rescue 74 dogs from a hoarding situation in Bethune. Most of the dogs rescued by Fostering Foster only need to be fostered for a short time. Helping is easy and the rescue is always looking for volunteers, Walker noted.

Fostering Foster will host its fourth annual Barn Dance fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 20. For more information visit www.fosteringfoster.com or connect with the organization on Facebook.
