Palmetto Animal League’s most important annual fundraiser has gained quite a following over the years – and for good reason.
The Bid for PAL Online Auction will take place from Thursday, Aug. 4 at 8 a.m. through Sunday, Aug. 7 at 8 p.m., offering a wide variety of items donated by animal-loving businesses. The auction includes many of our area’s most popular products and services, including golf rounds at renowned clubs, restaurant certificates, relaxing getaways, clothing, jewelry, home décor, and more. Participants look forward to this once-a-year, virtual shopping experience, knowing they are helping save homeless animals with each bid they make.
“It’s fun to check back and see all the new items being donated by big-hearted Lowcountry businesses,” says return bidder Polly Sten. “It feels good to browse and plan your bids knowing every penny will go to help save another animal waiting for a lifeline.”
The Bid for PAL Online Auction is a shopper’s paradise, with all the proceeds going to provide medical treatment, dedicated care, and lots of love for the homeless pets at PAL’s no kill adoption center in Okatie. New items are being added to their online catalog every day, so PAL encourages everyone to start browsing today at www.PALauction.org.
