Pet Helpers Spay/Neuter Clinic’s mission is to provide high-quality, spay/neuter services at an affordable cost to any family. Through low-cost services, pet owners are better able to receive spay/neuter surgeries and preventive care for their pets, helping to keep them out of the shelter system.

Meet Watson! This 10 year old boy is waiting to be your bestie!  You won’t have to look far for Watson as he loves to be right at your side, gazing up with those big doe eyes.

The quickest way to Watson’s heart is to give him lots of pets and a treat or too always brightens up his day! Watson still has quite a spring to his step and loves to play with his people!

Meet Joanie!

Meet Joanie!  This precious girl is the perfect mix of lovable sassiness!  With a meow you don’t want to miss!

Joanie, was previously adopted through Pet Helpers.  After being declawed in her prior home, she became a little hesitant towards humans and as a result has found temporary residency with us again. 

Joanie has a sweet, lovable side to go with her sassiness.  She will run to greet you at her door and will rub up against you once she’s had a chance to get to know you. 

If you’ve got a patient, loving home where she can be the only indoor kitty, you might just be the person for her.

Come by the shelter to meet Joanie and let her know that a loving home is just around the corner.

This Is Why

You Should Choose PET HELPERS

Pet Helpers regularly works with partner facilities to save cats and dogs who are at-risk of euthanasia. Adopting from Pet Helpers frees up space so that we can continue to save new animals, and find them their forever homes.

Pet Helpers has saved more than 49,000 lives from euthanasia through adoption and fostering. We continue to answer the call for help, and be a voice for the animals of the Lowcountry.


Our commitment is not only to our animals, but to our community.

Pet Helpers is committed to serving our community and pet owners, as well as our animals. Through our Pet Food Bank, Unchain Charleston, and affordable Spay/Neuter clinic, Pet Helpers has the resources to assist pet owners and help keep pets where they belong-at home.
