Palmetto Animal League, a private, nonprofit, no kill animal rescue organization, is marking 10 years of saving lives, and to celebrate they're hosting a 10th anniversary Holiday Open House at their Adoption Center in Okatie.
The event will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 30, and guests are invited to drop by for cookies, hot cocoa and coffee. PAL staff and volunteers will give tours of the space, including the newly updated cat rooms.
In honor of its 10th anniversary, PAL will be offering $10 adoptions all day.
"If you've been thinking about adopting, this will be a great day to find your new best friend," said PAL President Amy Campanini. "But we understand not everyone can adopt and that's OK! This open house is a celebration of life and hope and we want everyone to stop by to make some holiday memories."
Speaking of memories, the first 50 guests to arrive can make a $10 donation in exchange for one of PAL's Limited Edition 10th anniversary keepsake ornaments. Proceeds benefit PAL's no kill animal rescue programs that have saved the lives of more than 7,500 animals over the past decade.
"Compassionate animal rescue is a community effort and we couldn't be doing this without the dedicated support of our adopters, fosters, donors and volunteers," said Campanini. "We give every rescued pet a life-affirming promise that they'll never be homeless again, and we're ready to work even harder over the next 10 years to defend animals and reinvent the way society views abandoned cats and dogs."
As a part of its mission, PAL is helping provide "Meals on Wheels" for pets this holiday season. They're asking everyone to bring a pet food item, toy, treat, or cozy bed to their Holiday Open House on Nov. 30 so pets of homebound seniors can have a special holiday meal.
