Pixel Flood Resources for Victims of Catastrophic Rains & Flooding in South Carolina

Rains and flooding of epic proportions have hit the eastern U.S. since last weekend, and the waters are still rising. People in South Carolina especially are still suffering immensely with lives lost, homes destroyed, roads obliterated and flooding damaging thousands of homes and businesses. There are many people that are still displaced, and others who live near dams and rivers that threaten to flood their communities at any moment. This tragedy is not over yet. It is the Katrina of the east coast and it's heart breaking!


This is very personal for us. We have friends in Charleston, having lived there for many years, and we've stayed in Columbia a number of times, so this is very personal for us. South Carolinians are wonderful people. Please stay tuned to the local weather if you live in the area, such as 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 Articles about Lost/Found Pets and Efforts to Help in South Carolina:

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

  5. This is a great list! I will give it a share. I can't imagine being in the situation that those people in South Carolina are. Hopefully this one will get cleaned up a lot faster than Katrina was. There are a lot of great people there.

  8. Thank you so much for sharing this info and I will certainly pass it along!! I don't believe it's listed here, but today I was told about a website that also has an Android and iPhone app. It is categorized by zip code for lost, found and available adoptions of pets. The website is www.petharbor.com. I hope this can help someone as well!!

  11. I live in Lexington - just across the river from Columbia. There are new roads being blocked every day with roads washing out and giving way. I was one of the lucky ones, but there are many who've lost their homes. I've shared this on my FB page.
