Search starts Friday for 2 new Rescue Brew pet stars

The search will be afoot starting Friday for two new local pet stars in the Charleston Animal Society’s third annual Rescue Brew Beer contest. 

“As a rescue dog owner myself, this is near and dear to my heart as there has never been a brighter time than when I discovered my sweet Lola at six weeks old in a box outside a convenience store in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, 13 years ago,” said Ian Berg, a vice president of Palmetto Brewing Company, which is brewing a special small batch beer for the contest.

Pet owners entered almost 700 dogs and cats in last year’s contest.  Nominations for dogs and cats for this year’s search starts Friday.  The winning spokescat and spokesdog will appear on cans of 2022 Rescue Brew Beer by Palmetto Brewing Company.  

  • To participate this year, submit a photo of your pet to and outline why your pet deserves to win before nominations close Aug. 14.  Nominations, which cost $10 each, help to support the society’s wide array of programs.  

Voting starts Aug. 15

Starting Aug. 15, people can vote at $1 per ballot for their favorites through Sept. 14.  Charleston Animal Society will announce a winner the following month and the Rescue Brew Beer will be available in the fall.


“More than half of the funds needed for the lifesaving work at Charleston Animal Society come from donations,” said Charleston Animal Society President and CEO Joe Elmore. “The pandemic years prevented most in-person gatherings. We had to create new and unique ways to partner with local businesses and raise funds for our lifesaving mission
