Adoption Center and Spay/Neuter Clinic in Charleston, SC

Our mission is to end the euthanasia of all adoptable dogs and cats by operating a no-kill shelter, promoting forever adoptions and humane education, and providing low-cost spay/neuter surgeries.

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.


Pet Helpers is supported primarily from private donations;

Featured DOG

meet Aurora!

Aurora came to Pet Helpers after spending the first 5 years of her life on a chain. She is not only so excited to be free, but her personality is blossoming with routine and socialization!  Aurora would love a foster to help her continue learning, especially what it’s like to live in a home. This deserving girl would do best as the only pet, in a home without small children, and is looking for that special bond to continue showing her what the dog life is all about!



Meet Chester & Lina!

Say hello to our favorite bonded pair, Chester & Lina!  These two senior cats are some of the cuddliest in the shelter. Chester is a bit of a ham for attention, while Lina is more reserved, but after she smells her brother on you, she becomes quite the cuddle bug! Because they are bonded, it’s important that they find a home that has a heart big enough to take them both. Both of these cats have so much love to give, they just need the right place to spend their golden years!

This Is Why

You Should Choose PET HELPERS


When you adopt from Pet Helpers, you’re saving two lives-the life of your pet, and the life of the one who takes their place.

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.


For 42 years, our commitment to saving pets has never wavered.

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.
