Citrus Fresh Carpet Cleaning in Charleston SC
Lowcountry Orphan Relief


Low country Orphan Relief, Inc. We work directly with other non-profits, schools, foster parents, and government agencies to identify the individual needs of these and other children in severe situations. We intervene at critical junctures in the lives of these children, with products and services that provide a strong, positive impact. Since 2006, we have clothed over 22,000 children in the Tri-County area.
LOR uses more than 76% of all income given to them to provide for the children’s needs. Presently, community volunteers at our Distribution Center are collecting and shelving donations and filling orders for each child from area shelters, foster care and those removed from the custody of their parents. They receive clothing, toiletries, books and school supplies within 48 hours.
LOR has also built libraries at emergency shelters and group homes in the tri-county area and, in addition, conducts two events per year in order that the children may get out of the shelters and enjoy new surroundings.

Dorchester Paws

Dorchester Paws, formerly known as Frances R. Willis SPCA, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals in Dorchester County, South Carolina. Dorchester Paws is the only open-admission shelter in Dorchester County, serving towns including Rosinville, Ridgeville, Oakbrook, St. George, Summerville and Grover, SC. Partnering with Dorchester Code Enforcement, we take in every lost, abandoned and abused animal and provide them with food, shelter and medical attention until they find their forever home.

Our shelter was established in 1972 by Frances R. Willis with land donated by Kapstone. Dr. Brunson Westbury and Frances R. Willis worked to get the road built and land cleared to open the facility. Over the years, the shelter has been expanded, but we continue to reach and exceed our capacity because our community is growing and the pet overpopulation crisis is not abating.

Dorchester Paws is a partner in the “No Kill South Carolina Coalition.” We are determined to end unnecessary euthanasia in Dorchester County by 2019. Since the beginning of 2017, we have made significant improvements to our shelter and quality of care we provide to the animals. Our euthanasia rate has been steadily reduced and we have not euthanized for time, space or money since January 2017. We are committed to making our live release rate meet the national average.



Since 1992, we’ve been bringing together business leaders throughout the Mount Pleasant, SC community for mutually beneficial purposes.
