Palmetto Animal League is giving people the power to rescue homeless pets during their most important fundraiser of the year. The Bid for PAL Online Auction begins at 8 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 5 and run through 8 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 8 at www.PALauction. org.
“PAL’s online auction is a fun and impactful way for people to help animals and learn about local businesses that support animal rescue,” PAL President Amy Campanini said in a release.
People can bid on a variety of items and gift certificates from popular restaurants, shops, and service providers. Each item in the auction represents life-saving support for PAL’s compassionate, no kill rescue programs.
“When you go online to browse and bid on the wonderful items featured in our online catalog, you are saving an animal just as sure as if you were wrapping your arms around them yourself,” Campanini said. “Your participation in this fundraiser means life for a pet waiting for rescue.”
Bid for PAL showcases some of the most sought-after products and services our area has to offer. With just the click of a few keys, folks can find themselves golfing in Bluffton, dining in Beaufort, wine tasting in Hilton Head, or staying overnight in Savannah.
“After the auction, you can pick up the items you win at PAL and visit with the adoptable animals you are helping,” PAL Development Coordinator Stephanie Bashaw said.
From golf rounds at renowned clubs to restaurant certificates, relaxing getaways, clothing, jewelry, home decor and more, PAL’s online Auction has something for everyone.
“If you don’t want to shop for yourself but still want to help, you can bid on essential equipment for the PAL Adoption Center that will help animals for years to come,” Bashaw said. “We also offer animal sponsorships where you can sponsor a special needs pet, a hospice pet, or even a freedom flight saving dozens of animals at once!”
The auction also allows community members to see which big-hearted Lowcountry businesses support PAL.
“We love that bidders get to see the small businesses that are supporting animal rescue, even while times are tough, so they can feel good about patronizing these companies in the future,” Bashaw said.
