From staff reports
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, being held from 8 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 4 through 8 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 7, offers a wide variety of items for every shopper.
“With so many different animal-loving businesses and individuals donating products and services, there are always fresh, fun, exciting items each year,” PAL Development Coordinator Stephanie Bashaw said in a news release. “It’s like shopping the best of Bluffton, Hilton Head, and Beaufort all in one place.”
Participants look forward to this once-a-year, virtual shopping experience, knowing they are helping save homeless animals with each bid they make.
“Our compassionate team brings physical and emotional healing to animals who have survived some of the most unimaginable abuse,” PAL President Amy Campanini said. “We promise each animal that enters through our doors they’ll never be homeless again.”
PAL’s highly anticipated auction includes golf rounds at renowned clubs, restaurant gift certificates, relaxing getaways, clothing, jewelry, home décor, and more. It’s 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.
“Thanks to the support of our community, PAL can save cats and dogs from shelters that euthanize for space before it’s too late,” Campanini said. “The need is so great, and every contribution, no matter the size, can help save a life.”
When folks browse and bid on the fabulous items featured in the Bid for PAL Online Auction, they have a direct role in the rescue of a precious life.
“With no government funding, PAL relies solely on caring individuals and businesses to ensure a future for animals the rest of the world has forgotten,” Campanini said.
PAL’s auction also offers an option to bid on essential equipment for the PAL Adoption Center or sponsor a special needs pet, a hospice pet, or a freedom flight that saves dozens of animals.
New items are being added to their online catalog every day, so PAL encourages everyone to start browsing now.
“It’s fun to check back and see all the new items being donated by big-hearted Lowcountry businesses,” return bidder Polly Sten said. “It feels good to browse and plan your bids knowing every penny will go to help save another animal waiting for a lifeline.”
