BENEFITING: Palmetto Animal League
The Lowcountry is teaming with litters of kittens and puppies who deserve a second chance at life.
The Palmetto Animal League (PAL) Adoption Center currently is:
- Caring for almost 200 animals, double the normal capacity
- Buying 154 lbs. of dog food, 455 lbs. of cat food and 375 lbs. of cat litter
- Helping people keep their animals
- Trying to save as many lives as possible
Many of the animals arrive needing more than just a place to call home:
- They need to be spayed or neutered and vaccinated
- Some need heartworm and de-worming medications
- Some need extensive veterinary treatment to make them whole again
- During the first 8 weeks, it costs an average of $380 to save the life of a kitten or puppy
If you don’t have room in your home, but plenty of room in your heart, you can help PAL:
- A $25 donation feeds a puppy for a month or a kitten for 6 weeks
- A $50 donation will do both
- A $100 donation will help cover the cost of spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchipping – all standard with each adoption.
Please help by donating thru Crowdrise or directly.
Checks can be made out to Palmetto Animal League and sent to 56 Riverwalk Blvd, Okatie, SC 29936. Credit Card donations can be made by calling 843 645-1725 or at PalmettoAnimalLeague.org.
The cats and dogs in PAL’s guardianship have no time limits on how long they stay. They are nurtured in a clean, cage less, homelike environment by a caring staff until their furr-ever friend is found.

Palmetto Animal League recently rescued Bonnie, a young pregnant hound dog from an overcrowded local shelter. Bonnie and her unborn puppies were at risk of being destroyed. PAL saved Bonnie and placed her in PAL’s nursery where the next day Bonnie gave birth in a clean, safe and caring environment to 13 adorable puppies. Bonnie and her puppies were born with medical issues and PAL provided the necessary treatment to make them healthy. Some puppies had to be hand fed because Bonnie arrived so malnourished. PAL’s dedicated staff cared for all of these dogs and soon they will find out what it is like to be part of a loving family. This is what Palmetto Animal League does for homeless animals.
