meet stella luna!

Meet Stella Luna! Just like her name says, this beautiful, silver girl shines like the moon. Stella Luna loves to hug and give snuggles. She’d be the perfect addition for anybody looking for a buddy to cuddle and watch movies with on the couch. While Stella Luna loves people, she prefers to keep all of the attention on her alone, so she will need to be your one and only pup! Email your application to office@pethelpers.org to meet Stella Luna today!


Meet Big mAMA!

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.
