Charleston Animal Society and Palmetto Brewing kicked off the contest Friday at the downtown brewery | Provided

The 2021 Rescue Brew Beer Contest is looking for a new spokesdog and spokescat to rep Palmetto Brewing Company’s 2021 Rescue Brew.

A collaboration between No Kill South Carolina, Palmetto Brewing Company, the City Paper, WCSC-TV and Cupcake DownSouth, the contest celebrates the furry friends we love and supports the Charleston Animal Society (CAS).

Nominate your dog or cat for the competition and they could have their picture on the label of the limited batch 2021 Rescue Brew by Palmetto Brewing Company. Nominations can be submitted July 15-Aug. 15 via the CAS website.


Voting takes place Aug. 16-Sept. 17, and $1 will be donated to CAS for every vote cast with the goal of reaching $75,000.

The top three dogs and cats will each win a $100 CAS gift card for pet supplies in addition to tasty pet-friendly “pupcakes” prize packages from Cupcakes DownSouth. The top dog (and cat) from the final three will be selected by a panel of judges and appear on the label of the new Palmetto Brewing Company beer.
