In honor of Rescue Brew and all the good this fundraiser accomplishes, we decided to pay a visit to Palmetto Brewing Company at 289 Huger Street in Downtown Charleston to show some thanks to the amazing people who have helped to make the Rescue Brew Beer project a reality for the last three years. And what better way to celebrate the closing of Rescue Brew voting, than to bring in some very special rescues to the brewery!
Throughout the months of August and September, Lodi Coffee is offering a $50 giftcard to any new family who signs up to foster a dog or cat at Charleston Animal Society. This can be redeemed at their North Charleston location at 2210 Ashley Phosphate Road.
Since 1999, the Trammell’s have called the Old Village home. True to its name, the Old Village is a time capsule to a bygone era where neighbors aren’t strangers and it’s normal to stop and chat on the corner for a while. Since retiring, the two have become fixtures of their community simply by doing what they love.
With so much focus on the benefits of being active and outdoors for humans, it’s easy to forget the real need shelter dogs have for time to socialize and stretch their legs outdoors. Shelter life can be stressful for dogs – especially older dogs who might not have ever been away from what they knew as their home. Day trips out of the shelter can provide long-time residents a break from being in a kennel, allowing them time to decompress and to be stimulated with the sights and sounds of normal life.
This week, we stopped by the Charleston Fab Lab to take a look at their awesome facilities and to give shelter dogs, Gustus (chocolate lab-mix), Tonya (beagle hound-mix), and Tyson (staffie pit-mix), some time outside of the shelter.
