Adopt this Pet: Sweets

This sweet young thing is eager to meet her new owner

©Mike Ritterbeck

We know how this gal got her name because Sweets is as sweet as they come! She arrived at the Hilton Head Humane Association with some skin issues, which the staff gladly took care of. She was relinquished by her owner, who was unable to take care of her. Sweets is just 2 years old but has kept her puppy liveliness. Hurry up and go meet this sweet girl. She is so ready to meet her new owner.

Color: Black and white

Age: 2 (around 24 in human years)

Likes: Funny observations. “Google Earth gives you the opportunity to go and see anywhere in the world. So what do you do? You go and look at your house.” — Sweets

Dislikes: When you try to turn down the volume of a video on your phone but it turns down the ringtone volume instead. “Why can’t that be an option in the quick toggles instead? Nobody adjusts their ringtone volume more than once.” — Sweets

Adopt her: Hilton Head Humane Association, hhhumane.org, 843-681-8686


Adoption Updates

We contacted Laura Tipton of the Hilton Head Humane Association adoption team for an update on animals we’ve recently featured in LOCAL Life. Since our first issue in October 2017, all but two pets have found their forever homes. Here is Larua’s most recent update.

Del Webb (August)

Update: Still available


Congaree (July)

Update: “Congaree was adopted nearly on the same day as the magazine came out. It was a mother and daughter who drove down form Charleston to meet him. They fell in love.”


Duffie (June)

Update: Still available


Mitch (May)

Update: “Mitch was adopted near publication time as well. He went to a great home and is very well loved.”


Crawl (April)

Update: “Crawl has a very interesting story. He ended up being adopted by a volunteer who had attended training class with him a number of times. She had to stop volunteering for a bit to attend school and vowed to herself that she would come back and adopt him if he were still available.”
