Review for PETS Inc., The Carolinas Humane Society, West Columbia, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
