Pet Helpers loses beloved member of their family – Bob Linville

Dear Pet Helpers family of supporters: 

We are saddened by the recent passing of Bob Linville, the beloved husband
of Pet Helpers Founder and President, Carol Linville.  

While Carol was the “face” of Pet Helpers, Bob was very instrumental in its founding and he was
Carol’s greatest supporter as she pushed forward the no-kill movement in the Lowcountry.

Bob was a dedicated community leader, public servant and devoted husband to Carol for 42 years.   
As mayor of Folly Beach for 9 years, and councilman for 4, Bob was committed to our community and was
responsible for many city improvement projects and initiatives.  He was truly loved by all who knew him.  

As an animal lover, Bob believed that every animal deserved a home, a second chance, and was by Carol’s side every step
of the way as she made great strides in the animal welfare movement in our wonderful Charleston community.

At this time, please keep Carol and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
And, thank you all for your ongoing support of Pet Helpers, and of Carol’s mission.

Pet Helpers is supported primarily from private donations;
from individuals, businesses, and foundations.

Learn the many ways to contribute to our mission.
