17,568 pets saved
Each year, more than 17,000 companion animals enter the municipal animal shelters system in Richland and Lexington counties. More than 11,700 of these animals were euthanized. What we are all about is reducing that number to zero. That's the dream, and we're going to make it a reality. A giant leap in that direction was the opening in March 2012 of our new facility on Bower Parkway - the Meyer-Finlay Pet Adoption Center of Lexington and Richland Counties. Our facility houses numerous programs that help to make our mission of ending pet overpopulation a success.
