Cooler weather has finally made an appearance, making this the perfect time to get out and get moving! If you’ve been looking for an energetic, adventurous, loving companion to do life with, Palmetto Animal League might just have your perfect match. 

Aurora is a vibrant, 4-year-old dog who longs to find her perfect place in this world. She has the beauty and the brains! On top of that, she’s a survivor who doesn’t let life’s challenges stand in the way of happiness. For Aurora, one’s past does not have to define their future. 

“She and her puppies were rescued, along with 30 other dogs, from a hoarding situation,” said Sally Dawkins, PAL adoption coordinator. 

Aurora came to PAL in August when her puppies were just 4 weeks old. It was as if she sensed she was finally in a place where she would be safe and cared for. 

“A neighboring shelter needed our help to save this family, so PAL jumped in to help,” said Dawkins. 

Finally able to relax, Aurora was a doting mother to her eight delightful puppies. And, when it was time for them to leave the nest, this proud mama watched all her puppies find wonderful homes. 

“Aurora is one smart dog who needs a job,” said Dawkins. “The job of ‘mama’ has come to an end, and she is ready for her next position as someone’s fun-loving, bubbly best friend!”  

She would thrive in a home with a routine and lots of fun outings to keep her active, both physically and mentally. 

“She only wants attention and love,” said Shelby English, PAL kennel supervisor. “She enjoys toys and chews, and she takes really good care of her bed and pillows!” 

Aurora dreams of finding someone who shares her zest for life. If her undeniable pizzazz has captured your heart, call PAL at 843-645-1725 to schedule a meet and greet at our no-kill adoption center located at 56 Riverwalk Blvd. in Okatie.  

Even if you can’t adopt a dog set on adventure, you can still help raise money and resources for homeless pets like Aurora simply by walking! Any distance-related activity applies, such as walking, running, or biking, as long as the activity can be measured by GPS and involves a speed of less than 14 mph.
