Pets such as Shiney. He came to PAL in 2011 as a 2-month-old puppy and was adopted within weeks. Some months later, it came to our attention that Shiney was living in an outdoor storage container, where someone was stopping by just once a day to feed him.

We moved quickly to bring this gentle giant back to PAL. Despite his ordeal, Shiney returned to PAL the same loving, sweet-tempered creature we had known as a pup.

After another stay at our Adoption Center, Shiney found his new family. PAL makes a lifetime commitment to dogs like Shiney and every animal that comes into our care – an assurance that they will never be homeless again.

We hope you’ll take part in the Bid for PAL online auction and help pets like Shiney by supporting Palmetto Animal League’s No Kill Adoption Center, located in Okatie’s Riverwalk Business Park.
