Clear the Shelters 2019: Lowcountry participating shelters

Local News

It’s time once again to Clear the Shelters. Each year NBC stations team up with hundreds of shelters across the country for this nationwide pet adoption drive.

Through August, WSAV is partnering with local shelters to find animals their “fur-ever” homes. Take a look at the list of participating shelters below, with some special deals and additional information.

Jasper Animal Rescue Mission

Jasper Animal Rescue Mission (JARM) is dedicated to serving the people of Jasper County by providing shelter and humane care to dogs and cats that are lost, abandoned, neglected or abused.

They work to place adoptable dogs and cats in good homes with caring people, promote and provide spaying and neutering to reduce the population of stray and neglected dogs and cats, and provide educational material and learning opportunities concerning the proper care and treatment of pets.

JARM’s biggest needs right now are wet and dry adult dog food (Pedigree or Purina preferred). For more information visit their site or call 843-726-7799.

They’re also on Facebook. Follow there for adoption updates and more.

Palmetto Animal League (PAL)

Clear the Shelters special offer: PAL will be waiving adoption fees for cats and kittens from Monday, Aug. 26 to Saturday, Aug. 31. Note: Fees for senior pets (cats and dogs 7 years or older) are always waived.

PAL opened its first Adoption Center on Oct. 30, 2010, after 8 years of managing a network of loving foster families to house and care for our abandoned and homeless animals. The Adoption Center, which includes living space for approximately 150 adoption-ready cats and dogs, serves as headquarters for the League’s operations.

The rescue offers animals a friendly, comfortable, low-stress environment that encourages humans to visit, adopt, volunteer and get involved. Their 7,700 square foot building is located in Riverwalk Business Park in Okatie, SC.

Hilton Head Humane Association

Over the past year, 3,000 abandoned, injured, abused animals and feral cats have been cared for by the Hilton Head Humane Association. The organization spays/neuters and releases feral cats and provides food, shelter, medical, and loving care for the domesticated cats and dogs until adoptive homes are found.

The Hilton Head Humane Association, dedicated to providing a safe haven for abandoned cats and dogs of the Lowcountry, is funded entirely by membership dues, private donations, and generous bequests.

The Salty Dog is sponsoring adoptions at Hilton Head Humane Association from Monday, Aug. 19 to Saturday, Aug. 24. The restaurant will be covering the cost of the adoption and donating a bandana with each adoption. The restaurant primarily was covering the cost of 25 animals but will now cover the cost of an additional 25.

Hilton Head Humane Association will be giving out leashes, collars, beds, Heartworm preventative and Flea preventative for cats.
