Who we are
PETSinc is dedicated to help as many dogs
and cats and their owners as we can.
PETSinc was founded by Patricia McQueen and Jane Brundage in December, 1991 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill animal rescue organization serving the South Carolina’s Midlands.
The volunteer-only operation was so successful that a small adoption center was opened in 1993 with our first full-time employees. By 1998, the operation was moved to our present 13-acre site.
PETSinc is a no-kill pet rescue NPO serving the Midlands of SC as an outlet for rescuing, rehoming, and rehabbing abandoned, abused, and stray animals. Our mission also includes providing low-cost, full-service comprehensive and alternative therapies veterinary care; increasing public awareness of animal-related problems such as the needs and means for reducing pet overpopulation; and educating our community about responsible pet ownership.
Growing to meeting our community's needs
We opened our current 10,000-square-feet adoption center located at 300 Orchard Drive in West Columbia, SC, in 2006. In 2010, we opened a low-cost, high quality Neuter Scooter Vet Clinic to provide services for emergency rescues and spaying and neutering surgeries.
Additional veterinary services were added later including dental services, blood tests, skin treatment, deworming, illness/injury/preventative care; and we extended hours for the convenience of our clients, as well as networking with nearby rural communities who have little access to high-quality, affordable comprehensive vet care.
Working to solve animal over-population
PETSinc places over 3,200 animals into adoption or temporary foster homes each year, while our modest adoption center houses approximately 100 homeless animals at all times who are waiting for their forever families. With each dog or cat that is brought to us, we offer basic vetting and grooming plus lifetime registration with our pet identification programs which helps us return lost pets to their owners. Having grown to helping thousands of distressed pets and their families each year through our comprehensive services, we can boast of nearly 90,000 success stories since our humble beginnings in 1991.
