Featured DOG

meet Cricket!

Say hi to cutie pie, Miss Cricket! She’s 8 years young, weighs 49 pounds, and is always black-tie ready. Cricket was found exploring marshland along Hwy 17, so it’s unknown if she has experience living in a home. She is very friendly with humans, and would thrive in a home without other animals or children. Cricket’s favorite pastimes are exploring during leash walks, butt scratchies, and burrowing under a big blanket to snuggle. Contact Pet Helpers at 843-795-1110 to meet Cricket. 


Meet Coco

Interested in a sophisticated, well-established, hardy outdoor adventurer? My name is Coco and I am all of the above. Did I mention I’m chocolate brown with gold whiskers? I love being outside; it is all I have ever known, so I’m looking for a nice safe area where I can be both indoor and outdoor. Although I may be out\door inclined, I love to be pet and have climbed into laps to receive head rubs. Being inside has made me very unsure and insecure and I’m waiting for someone who can look past that and give me the opportunity I need to spread my wings. My previous owners passed away and I was brought here to Pet Helpers so I could have a fair chance at my new chapter. Unfortunately, I don’t do well with dogs and will not thrive in a home with one.

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.
