Our Community Involvement
Wag-n-Splash is committed to the rescue community and we are always happy to donate a swim gift certificate to your silent auction, raffle, or other type of fundraiser. Please contact us with your event details, 501c3 info, and donation request.
Beyond the pet community, Wag-n-Splash is also committed to several local community and outreach groups. We love donations of in-kind goods or time. Please take a look at the list below and let us know if you would like to get involved.
Adopt A Highway:
Wag-n-Splash has adopted the 2-mile stretch of Dorchester Rd in front of the pool. The 2021 clean up dates are March 21, June 12th, September 4th, and October 23rd. Our goal is 10-12 volunteers for each date. You are greeted by coffee and donuts at check-in and lunch is provided after we are finished! Please sign up here to receive updates on future clean up events.
Lowcountry Blessing Box Project:
We are thrilled to host a Pet Food Blessing Box at the pool.
The mission behind the Blessing Box Project is simple. And our Pet Food Box is a "no judgement, take what you need, leave what you can, mini food pantry for pets". Donations of dry and wet dog and cat food are always accepted. Additional items like treats, toys, leashes, and bowls are nice too. We also accept open bags of food (if your pet is switching, didn't like it, etc), just bring those inside so we can re-bag them for freshness. Molly regularly distributes pet food to the other area Blessing Boxes as well to spread the love around.
Carolina Wildlife Rehabilitation Center:
Molly is the Board President of CWRC and a wildlife triager/rehabber. Currently we have rehabbers in Charlotte, NC, Myrtle Beach, and Charleston. The main medical facility of CWRC is in Charlotte, NC but we are actively working towards moving our full operations to Myrtle Beach, SC where the need is the greatest (don't worry, Molly isn't going anywhere). Molly mainly accepts turtles and snakes, along with bats and limited small mammals. The Center is always in need of donations to support the animals in our care. Most animals spend months with us before they are able to be released back to the home territories. Ask Molly for more info or visit cwrcwildlife.org to find out how you can help!
Sweet Tea Carolina Veteran Outreach:
Molly met Kim, the organizer of a small (but growing!) veteran food outreach group, through the Nextdoor app. After following Kim's story for a few months, it occured to her that she could offer a service to the veterans that wasn't being provided: Free Laundry! Unfortunately, the laundry facilities at the motel, where the vets live, aren't sufficient to handle their blankets, towels, and other large items. Once or twice a month, their laundry is loaded in Molly's truck and brought to the pool. The next week, it is returned clean and folded! It has been a great joy working with the group, seeing the positive changes in these folks lives. If you would like to contribute supplies to the laundry outreach, the most needed items are bleach, laundry detergent (Tide preferred), and dryer sheets. The food outreach is always in need of volunteers and they are currently looking for weekly sponsors of canned proteins, such as tuna, chicken, spam, beef ravioli, etc.
