Post-Hurricane Help for Pets

The American Humane Association is teaming up with Palmetto Animal League to create a Pet Disaster Recovery Center at the PAL Adoption Center in Okatie’s Riverwalk Business Park. American Humane’s rescue team has arrived at PAL with two giant, 50-foot emergency rescue vehicles ready to provide emergency aid for animals and pet owners affected by Hurricane Matthew.

American Humane will be distributing cat and dog food at PAL each day from 10am-6pm.

Veterinary services, including pet wellness checks and other non-surgical needs will also be available in a few days, provided by American Humane’s mobile clinic.

When resources are in place, American Humane will also be offering animal daycare and micro-chipping. PAL will announce the timeframe for these additional services as they become available. People can check for the latest info on services available on Palmetto Animal League's Facebook page.
