“I would love to learn more about Pawmetto Lifeline. Where can I find this information?”

Pawmetto Lifeline is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit animal rescue organization located in Columbia, SC, solving pet overpopulation in the Midlands. Our mission is to establish a no-kill community in the Midlands, meaning no healthy, adoptable dog or cat dies because it is homeless.  There are over 19,000 homeless pets in the Midlands and over 14,000 are euthanized each year. We have a plan in place that uniquely positions us to correct this problem through four distinct initiatives: Adoption, Medical, Rescue Collaboration, and Education. We are always eager to speak with anyone interested in our mission.  Please feel free to contact us at info@pawmettolifeline.org or call 803-465-9150.
