About godscreaturesdeserve2live
  Gods Creatures Deserve 2 Live Inc. was founded January 2012; however, its work began over 20 years ago. Christopher Raffield the founder, was a former police officer for 17 years until his deteriorating health due to parkinsons disease and other health issues, no longer allowed him to do so. He has dedicated his life to the well being of animals and their rescue. Now he runs the shelter full time. Gods Creatures is partnered with Petco and currently houses 38 dogs 6 cats and two horses but the numbers change from day to day due to adoptions, owner relinquishments, and abandoned or abused animals. We are registered as part of the "No Kill Network" as we do not believe in putting down an animal unless health conditions make it impossible to save it.  All of Gods Creatures are viable and worth saving!!

  Gods Creatures Deserve 2 Live Inc. is located at 3221 Camden Hwy. in Dalzell, SC 29040 which is part of Sumter County. All of our board members and workers are all strictly volunteers so that all of our funding goes to the sole purpose of housing, feeding, and veterinary care for our pets.There is a donation box located on the compound entrance for convenient drop off of food, dog bowls, blankets, leashes, any and all donations. Just make sure your information is attached so we can send out your tax deductible receipts.  We are open Monday through Saturday but we request that you call first before coming out due to the fact our schedule works around Christophers doctor appointments and Jennys school. All donations are tax deductible and are greatly appreciated.
