November/December 2018

HAL Friends and Supporters,

The 4Hs – Hunter and Harriet were formally adopted into two different but wonderful families. YAY!!!  Hudson and Hazel are in a trial adoption in Mount Pleasant…paws crossed.

We just rescued a sweet and gentle solid black kitten named — Sadie.  She weighs 5.4LBS.

Claudia Christiana “Christi” is available for adoption (Pictured)  She is in the PRVH lobby cage. She is very sweet, playful and loving.  Stop by and say “hello.”

HAL Benefit

We want to give a big heartfelt thank you to all our HAL friends and supporters who participated in the “Week of Giving” at Blackstone’s Cafe and/or bought Raffle tickets, HAL T-shirts or donated $$ to the cause.  The fundraiser was a big success.

RAFFLE WINNERS were contacted Sunday, October 21. Unless we told you otherwise, all raffle prizes will be ready for pick up on Wednesday, 10/24 at Blackstone’s Cafe.    Congratulations to all the WINNERS!
Special “Shout Out” to:
– Lou and Annamaria Gaudio, for kindly selecting HAL as their charity for the “Week of Giving. We encourage you to stop in Blackstone’s Cafe and thank them for being the best people and partners.  They are our heroes.
– the STAFF at Blackstone’s Cafe for their many kindnesses throughout the week.
– Beaufort County businesses as well as Marine Corp Community Services who donated RAFFLE items.
Finally, if you want to buy a HAL T-shirt for $10 it is not too late.  The staff at Port Royal Veterinary Hospital is kindly selling them for us at their office at 1502 Paris Ave, Port Royal.  Thank you PRVH!  They are also HAL’s veterinarians. Check out who is in the lobby cage this week.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thanks for believing in and supporting HAL. We know there are lots of charities looking for money and we are grateful many of you chose HAL. We wish you and your families comfort and joy for that is what you are giving to homeless cats and dogs in 2019.


Micro-chip your pet now before he/she goes missing.  Be proactive…With one in three pets getting lost in their lifetime, ensure that your pet (dogs AND cats) is microchipped. There is a greater chance of a happy reunion if your lost pet is microchipped. All HAL kitties are microchipped.

Microchipping is available through the Beaufort County Animal Shelter for a small fee.  If your pet is chipped, make sure the company has your current contact information.  This internet-based company will help rescuers find you without having to know which company made your chip –  Pet Microchip lookup.

Train your cat to walk on Leash

Did you know that it is the law in Beaufort County that dogs AND cats (Ordinance 14-33 Running at Large) must be on a leash if they are off your property?  Most people are used to seeing dogs on a leash but cats!  How is it possible to train a cat to walk on a leash? Here is a great article with some very specific tips on how to train your cat to walk on leash.  It is safer and healthier.

Don’t forget to keep up-to-date on our HAL news and events via our “Facebook” page.   HAL is a fund of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry (CFL) and all donations are tax deductible.   Be sure to select “Humane Association of the Lowcountry Fund” from the drop down box. We are a small charity and sincerely appreciate your support.
