Holly Golden of Hilton Head Island wanted to do something for pets in Jasper County.

Armed with many volunteers, including Nicole Bremer and Reeves Bremer, local businesses responded with enthusiasm. Working with Lila Resh, the director of the Jasper County Senior Center, donations were delivered Dec. 22 to some 80 seniors and their pets through the center’s Meals on Wheels Program.

The donations included dog and cat food, specialized treats, toys, complimentary wellness exams and nail trimmings and complimentary baths.

The seniors were touched by the generosity.

The donors include Palmetto Animal League, Rogue Rescue & Sanctuary, Tail Wiggles of Hilton Head, Carolina Canine Hotel & Spa, Jasper County Animal Mission (JARM), Palmetto Veterinary Hospital (Dr. McBrayer), Palmetto Chicken and Biscuits and many personal volunteers.

“I cannot express how wonderful this gesture from Holly Golden and all of the volunteers for our home delivery clients was,” Lila Resh said. “The Jasper County Council on Aging cannot express our gratitude enough.”
