Rob Fowler of the Storm Team 2 in Charleston SC. He's an excellent resource for the Lowcountry weather, and Mommy has known him since they worked together many years ago. He's trustworthy and always presents the best information and facts.
We wanted to share some important and helpful information on shelters across the state of South Carolina, as well as share a couple of news articles. Special thanks to MilkPaws.com dog blog for getting us started in creating this list. God be with everyone in the affected areas and may your lives, communities and homes be returned back to normal soon!

News article listing shelters by county for displaced families (not listing pet friendly, but very helpful. Not everyone has pets and you may be able to get assistance to board your pets just to get through this tough time.)
I will post more information as I find it friends. If you come across any additional information, please share it in a comment below or on my Pixel Blue Eyes Facebook page. Let's help South Carolina and the surrounding communities out. Let's get them through this, and lets save as many pets as we can!
With much love, Pixel and Mommy Jenny
