PETS Inc., The Carolinas Humane Society
February 24, 2011

My first experience with PETS Inc. was 7 years ago when my mom and I adopted a sweet little girl named Charm. She was 6 when we adopted her and she'd not had an easy life. But Charm was such a sweet girl and was there for our family whenever we needed to smile. Sadly, she passed away in November, 2010. When my husband and I were ready to bring another four legged child into our family, we both immediately thought of PETS, Inc. We entered and were given a sponsored adoption of our newest baby, Badger. Technically, Badger's not a baby as he's 14 years old but he's precious and I treasure his presence in our family. PETS Inc. is an amazing place and provides a much needed 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) chance for pets who haven't found their forever homes yet. They provide such a wonderful and caring environment to rehabilitate dogs and cats if needed. They have a fantastic fostering system. They're just an all around amazing place. The main thing they're lacking is money. They're a non-profit organization that depends on donations and, unfortunately with the economy, PETS Inc. has taken more of a hit and they're ability to help pets that have been thrown out or abandoned has decreased. We, as a society and Columbia as a city, need MORE places like PETS Inc. Until we get more, though, PETS Inc. is a beacon of hope for so many souls, not just animals but people, like my family, who wouldn't be complete without them.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

PETS Inc. has helped my husband & I complete our family not once but twice. I've been to PETS Inc on several occasions, to shop in addition to adoption trips. I've seen the happy faces of families who've adopted a new pet. I've seen animals who've been taken in by PETS Inc who would've otherwise been taken to the animal shelter.
