We are looking for additional foster homes to keep up with growing demand. If you have been looking for a meaningful way to make a difference, now is the time!

Our Adoption Center is full and new animals are arriving weekly. We need your help to care for cats and dogs that are either too young or too weak to adopt out. By providing a temporary home for a pet in need, you are helping PAL save more lives!
Ready to get started? For more details, contact us at 843-645-1725 or fill out our foster care application on the right.
If you are having trouble with the online form please download the Foster Care Application here. The application can be emailed to or dropped off at the Palmetto Animal League Adoption Center Monday through Saturday 12-7pm.
