Sweet Allan, a local lowcountry Pitbull, came to Pet Helpers just a few weeks ago with severe neck wounds from an embedded chain. He is just one example of an abused lowcountry pup needing expensive emergency care requiring multiple surgeries. Pet Helpers is a private, non-profit animal adoption center that serves the lowcountry community. On Sunday, February 22, 2015, Pet Helpers chose a glamorous approach to raise funds for their many important initiatives from ending euthanasia for all adoptable cats and dogs, to providing low cost spay/neuter surgeries and providing humane education programs.
For $75, local animal lovers were invited to A Night at the Oscars gaining red carpet entrance to a transformed Club Trio, this year’s premier location for Oscars viewing. Sequins, stilettos and suits took over the venue cheering on their favorite stars and starlets live on the big screen, dancing the night away to Quiana Parler & Friends Band and sipping continuously flowing champagne and enjoying abundant hors d’oeuvres.
Pet Helpers has a wonderful family of sponsors including King Street Hospitality, Sweetgrass Social Event + Design, Technical Event Company, Charleston Magazine, Dana Cubbage Photography, Branch Design Studio, Apex Broadcasting, AFFA, 103.5 WEZL, 105.5 The Bridge, Y102.5, EventWorks, M.
