MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – The News13 Weekend Pet for September 3-4 is Abraham, a year-old cat available for adoption through the Grand Strand Humane Society.
Abraham has been at the shelter for about two weeks after his wandering arrival, a spokeswoman said. He is “adorable”, fully vaccinated and ready for a new forever home.
Abraham is one of many animals available for adoption as the shelter prepares for its 50th anniversary gala and fundraiser on Thursday. The event will take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Dunes Golf and Beach Club.
The gala will include food, drink, dancing and a silent auction, which will include 2023 VIP wristbands for the 2020 Carolina Country Music Fest; tickets to the 2023 Monday After the Masters event; bespoke Ash Hoffman jewelry; Carolina Panthers/Tampa Bay Buccaneers tickets; a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 20 year old bourbon and more.
All money raised at the event will be used to help fund a new shelter for the Humane Society, which continues to temporarily house cats and dogs in separate locations. Dogs are located at 3421 Mr. Joe White Avenue in Myrtle Beach, while Cats are located off Highway 501 at Tanger Outlets across from Carolina Pottery in Conway.
