About Pet Helpers:
"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.
Founded in 1978 by President Carol Linville, Pet Helpers has become an integral part of the Charleston community by offering refuge and rehabilitation to thousands of animals each year through adoption, foster care, humane education, lost-and-found pet services, low-cost spay/neuter services, medical assistance, and more. Carol began rescuing dogs and cats from shelters where they were at-risk for euthanasia, and keeping them in her home or finding foster homes with friends and family.
In 1983, Pet Helpers moved into a renovated house on Folly Road in James Island, SC, and became Lowcountry’s first no-kill rescue and adoption center. Through Carol’s dedication and passionate energy, along with the generosity of many volunteers and donors, Pet Helpers was able to grow and develop. Pet Helpers expanded its services to assist authorities with animal cruelty cases, provide humane education, and continued work to reduce the pet overpopulation problem.
In 2008, Carol’s dream became a reality when the 14,000-square-foot Pet Helpers Adoption Center and Spay/Neuter Clinic was built at the current location on Folly Road. Pet Helpers added important programs including the ability to provide acute medical care to shelter animals, assisting low-income families through the Pet Food Bank, providing spay/neuter services to other rescue groups and feral cat colonies, offering public low-cost vaccine clinics, and building fences through the Unchain Charleston program.
Pet Helpers has saved more than 54,600 lives since its founding, and has provided critical services to the community of pet owners and animal lovers throughout Lowcountry. Today, it is only a matter of time before no adoptable animals are euthanized. Together, we can continue to save the lives of so many!"
