An Eagle Scout candidate building a storage shed for the Humane Society of North Myrtle Beach

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBWT) – Julianne Selph has a soft spot for homeless animals, so for her Eagle Scout service project, she decided to help the Humane Society of North Myrtle Beach by building a crate storage shed .

Its goal is to make more space inside the shelter for homeless animals.

“My heart is touched by all of the cherished cats and dogs that are at the shelter,” she said. “I chose to build a shed for the Humane Society because I want to help them have more space to help homeless animals. I know that part of the soul is never awakened unless you love an animal, and this project is about me awakening the soul. Hopefully after this project more people will be aware of the needs of the Humane Society and all the animals in their care.

Members of the community are invited to help Selph as she builds the shed. She will be working 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at 1392 48th Ave North in Myrtle Beach and 5 to 8 p.m. on November 29 at the shelter.

“It’s so heartwarming to see young volunteers taking the initiative to have such a positive impact in the community,” said Tina Hunter, director of the shelter. “This shed will provide much needed storage space for supplies, which will give us more space inside the building to help more animals. I am so proud of Julianne and hope she can inspire others to use their time and talents to give back as well.

Donations to help the project can be made through the shelter’s Facebook page or online at

The refuge is located at 409 Bay Street in North Myrtle Beach. For more information visit or call 843-249-4948.
