This week’s Blackbaud Nonprofit of the Match is Pet Helpers. Pet Helpers’ is a 501(c)3 Adoption Center and Spay/Neuter Clinic that serves communities across the Lowcountry. Our mission is to end the euthanasia of all adoptable cats and dogs by keeping all animals until adopted; providing low cost spay/neuter surgeries; offering humane education programs; pursuing animal-cruelty prosecution; and initiating animal-welfare legislation.
For 38 years, Pet Helpers has focused on the needs of homeless animals. Through a commitment to quality sheltering and required spay/neuter, the organization has worked tirelessly to save those animals that are without human guardianship.
Pet Helpers service the entire Lowcountry, where we are the only independent adoption shelter and veterinary center of our kind, that is fully-staffed and maintains regular business hours. Pet Helpers answers 20,000 calls a year to provide assistance and information to the public concerning animal issues.
The organization’s annual gala, Fur Ball, will be held on October 28th at the Charleston Marriott at 6:30 PM. Tickets cost $150 and are on sale now at pethelpers.org. All proceeds from the event go back to the animals.
Pet Helpers is always accepting donations of any kind and volunteers. Monetary donations go towards Dixie’s Fund, the organization's fund specifically dedicated to helping injured animals and providing bedding, towels, and food for dogs and cats.
