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.

Featured Dog

Meet Millie

Meet Millie! This 3 year old energetic dog is waiting to be your one and only!  Millie arrived at Pet helpers as a pregnant pup and after having her litter of adorably cute puppies, she has been waiting patiently for someone to appreciate her just as much as they did her puppies.

Earning the way to Millie’s heart starts with a good game of tug of war with her favorite toys.  After that she loves to relax for a good nap, preferably curled up along your side so she can get all the pets!

Millie loves people and will squirm and wiggle her way into your good graces, but she would prefer to be the only four-legged friend that earns your attention and love.  If you would like to schedule an appointment to come see Millie, simply call (843)795-1110 or email, office@pethelpers.org.

Featured Cat

Meet Meow!

Meet Meow! This 5 year old kitty is ready and waiting to become the newest addition to your family! Meow is one special cat, full of personality and a playful nature. Meow came to Pet Helpers with a dislocated ankle, due to trauma he endured. The best course of action was to amputate his hind leg. Well, Meow wasn’t going to let that stop him from enjoying all that life has to offer. He quickly learned to navigate his way around his temporary home in the shelter’s administrative offices, running to greet staff members each day.

Meow loves to cuddle up in a nice cozy spot, whether that is on a nice plush blanket or in your lap, making biscuits and purring up a storm. Once he has had his fill of attention he will let you know and scamper off to his next adventure. 

If you think Meow would be the perfect addition to your home, come visit the shelter to meet this adorable kitty.  He would love nothing more than to spend his lifetime with you!  What do you say?
