Local Philanthropists Donate $50,000 To Save Animals’ Lives
A $50,000 donation from a group of several Midlands business leaders will allow Pawmetto Lifeline to help even more homeless pets in the Midlands find permanent homes this summer.
Jan Jernigan of Morgan Stanley, Blake DuBose of DuBose Web Group, Kim Inman of Columbia Conference Center, Fowler and Carlynn Cary of CCM Investment Advisers, Stewart and Deloris Mungo of Mungo Homes, Mike and Debra DuBose of the DuBose family of companies, and Clyde, the cat, gathered to present Pawmetto Lifeline CEO Denise Wilkinson the $50,000 check at the Columbia Conference Center.
Pawmetto Lifeline (formerly Project Pet) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that strives to reduce pet overpopulation in the Midlands through proactive spay/neuter programs, pet adoption services, and community education. Pawmetto Lifeline’s new no-kill animal shelter is located at 1275 Bower Parkway in Columbia, SC.
“In times when there is so much suffering in the world, it is even more important to remember the animals, who can’t even speak for themselves. In making this donation, we know that we can ensure that companion animals in our area are given a voice—and a chance,” said Pawmetto Lifeline board president Deloris Mungo.
