Hurricane Matthew Evacuation Help!
On October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew was approaching the coastal areas of the Carolinas. All 4 Paws, an animal shelter on Pawleys Island, asked PETSinc to house almost 80 dogs until the threat of the hurricane had past. PETSinc agreed and the first van load of dogs were unloaded that Thursday afternoon at our shelter in West Columbia. The remaining dogs arrived late Friday night as the storm was beginning to near the South Carolina coast. They stayed with us safe and sound until that Monday, the 10th, when the staff of All 4 Paws came back to pick them up. We were asked to keep 14 of their furbabies who are currently at our shelter ready for adoption and to be taken to their forever home. Please come by and visit with them!
When we asked our community to help us, so many of you came to their rescue in the form of time, talent, and/or treasure. We are so grateful for all of YOU!
Here was our message:
