The 13th annual Bid for PAL Online Auction will begin at 8 a.m. Aug. 4 and continue until 8 p.m. Aug. 7, offering a wide variety of items donated by animal-loving businesses.

PAL’s most important fundraiser of the year has gained a following over the years, partly because of the benefit to animals, and partly for the quality of items offered. The auction includes many of the area’s most popular products and services, such as rounds of golf at renowned clubs, restaurant certificates, relaxing getaways, clothing, jewelry, home décor, and more. Participants look forward to this once-a-year, virtual shopping experience, knowing they are helping save homeless animals with each bid they make.

“It’s fun to check back and see all the new items being donated by big-hearted Lowcountry businesses,” says bidder Polly Sten. “It feels good to browse and plan your bids knowing every penny will go to help save another animal waiting for a lifeline.”

The Bid for PAL Online Auction is a shopper’s paradise, with all the proceeds going to provide medical treatment, dedicated care, and lots of love for the homeless pets at PAL’s no kill adoption center in Okatie. New items are being added to the online catalog every day. Browsing is encouraged before the event begins, at
