Pet Helpers is a 501(c)3 nonprofit 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.
Our adoption process usually begins with potential adopters (21 or older) coming into the shelter to look around at our available animals. When we have a better idea of who we want to adopt the potential adopter fills out one of our adoption questionnaires which we will then look over. We do have to confirm certain information like an apartment complexes pet policies, verifying that current pets are up to date on their vaccines, etc. We also try to meet all the humans in the household as we believe adopting a new animal should be a group decision. With our dog adoptions we also require dog to dog meet and greets in order to help make sure the potential new dog is a good fit. We love nothing more than seeing our shelter animals find their forever homes and we do everything in our power to make sure each adoption is a happy and successful one. Everything we do is ultimately for the health and happiness of animals.
