Animal Welfare in the Lowcountry
“A community where every neglected animal has a second chance at life.” Palmetto Animal League
At Bedminster, our commitment to animal welfare organizations stems from a belief that as a community of volunteers and donors, we can help to improve the lives of homeless, abused and abandoned animals. So each month, we select one animal welfare organization to support, and Palmetto Animal League is on our list.
For 8 years, Palmetto Animal League (PAL) managed a network of foster families in the Low country, housing and caring for homeless and abandoned animals. On October 30, 2010, PAL opened its first no-kill Adoption Center in the Riverwalk Business Park in Okatie, SC. The adoption center provides living space for up to 100 adoption-ready cats and dogs in its 7,700 square foot building and serves as headquarters for the League’s operations. Since 2002, PAL has helped over 5,000 animals through rescue, foster care, adoption, and spay/neuter services.
Palmetto Animal League is a private, non-profit, 501-c-3, no kill animal rescue organization and with the exception of spay and neutering services, they provide and administer all treatments for their animals in-house, except for those requiring veterinary attention such as broken limbs. PAL relies on donations and grants to keep their doors open. Donations of wet and dry food, cat litter, beds, blankets and toys are always welcome.
In 2010, as a part of our commitment to animal welfare, The Bedminster Group created a workshop especially for pet lovers titled Estate Planning for your Four Legged Heirs which has been presented to Bluffton and Hilton Head Island groups. Now, in partnership with Palmetto Animal League, the Bedminster Group will be present this class as a part of adoption education for new pet owners.
