Give a Wag! Gives to Charleston Shelters

Kanawha-Charleston Humane Society admits a staggering 10,000 animals a year and works tirelessly to reduce that number by preventing surrenders, overpopulation, and neglect.  KCHA provides tip-top veterinary and behavioral rehabilitation services in order to bring their behavior based euthanasia rates under 1%. KCHA and their animal control officers rally the community in times of crisis and has always been there for animals and families in need. 

Founded by a single woman on a mission, Pet Helpers works to reduce rates of unnecessary euthanasia across the South Carolina Lowcountry. They are constantly innovating, looking for new ways to reduce overpopulation with durable solutions. Pet Helpers hosts several spectacular fundraising galas and events in the community to support their cause. Since their inception, they have created several programs like PLAY, Unchain Charleston, and the Pet Food Bank. 

This no-kill shelter is fiercely passionate about advocating their no kill, no harm message.  Charleston Animal Society plays a large role in the community, hosting one of the largest fundraising chilli cookouts in the state along with foster network brunches. CAS' activism is as large as their success rates, and they are an unstoppable force in the media. One would wonder how they have time to keep us in the loop, but when they are not saving animals, CAS keeps an updated log on success stories and local events.
