WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A thrift store in West Columbia is donating $2000 to several animal rescue groups.
St. Paws Thrift Store is hosting a ceremony Saturday, November 9th at its store in Triangle City to present $500 checks to the Animal Protection League, Carolina Wildlife Care, Grehyound Lifesavers of NC, SC & GA and Heartworm Project.
St. Paws Thrift Store has donated a total of $6,000 to 10 different area rescue groups. Earlier this year, six other organizations were awarded funds, including F.I.D.O., Animal Rescue Carolina (ARC), Carolinas Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) Rebound & Rescue, SQ Rescue, Howlmore Animal Sanctuary and Patter Pets.
