Palmetto Animal League to Host Adoption Concert in Hardeeville, SC

Palmetto Animal League is set to hold an animal adoption event and concert Thursday at Autonation Subaru Hilton Head to celebrate 12 years of helping animals in the Lowcountry, according to a news release.

“By bringing together shelter dogs and potential adopters in a fun and festive atmosphere, AutoNation Subaru Hilton Head is helping to give these animals a second chance at life,” said league president Amy Campanini.

The concert, considered a “mutt mixer”, will begin at 5:30 p.m. and last until 7:30 p.m. Pets are also welcome, officials said in the press release. Door prizes, appetizers and live music from local bluegrass band Lowcountry Boil will be available, along with adoption fee waivers for anyone wishing to bring home a pet. The fee waiver comes after a grant to the Palmetto Animal League from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

For every cat or dog adopted in October, the Subaru dealer has pledged to donate $100 to the Palmetto Animal League to support its no-kill animal rescue programs.

The event was organized as a way to help “outsiders”, Campanini said.

“This event will touch the lives of homeless dogs waiting to find their perfect place in this world,” she said.
