Mission Statement

Pawmetto Lifeline is a non-profit animal welfare organization formed in 1999 to pro-actively address companion pet overpopulation in South Carolina through education,legislation, spay/neuter programs and responsible adoptions. Pawmetto Lifeline works closely with Lexington and Richland County Shelters in order to rescue animals from certain euthanasia.

Description

Founded in 1999 as Project Pet, Pawmetto Lifeline has been the conscience of compassion for the Midlands community and a vital area resource for humane care for our abandoned and homeless pets. Our legacy is devotion to responsible and compassionate care for the homeless animals of our community, and of fostering the animal-human bond. As we transition into our new home, we remain dedicated to the core principle that every life is precious and that euthanasia should not be used as a means to control a domesticated population.

Our Plan

Each year, more than 17,000 companion pets enter the municipal systems in Lexington and Richland Counties. More than 11,000 of these pets are euthanized. We have a moral and ethical obligation to care for and to extend the most compassionate and humane solution to the very problem that we have allowed to exist by not spaying and neutering our pets. We are implementing a solid plan employing specific, identified solutions - solutions that have been proven to work in other areas of the country.

The reward of helping animals in need would be enough, but the continual "Thank You" from so many inspiring people just adds to the bonus. This organization has saved thousands of lives and saved me as well by giving me a reason to get out and move after retiring. I would recommend doing everything you can to help. Donate time, money, towels, blankets, newspapers, washing materials- anything. I love this place!
