Rescue. Educate. Outreach. Adopt. Furever.

PINC partners with local businesses and recommends these below to residents of Union County.

About 2.4 million healthy, adoptable cats and dogs—about one every 13 seconds—are put down in U.S. shelters each year.

Often these animals are the offspring of cherished family pets. Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them.

Pawsitive Impact NC has some of the best pups around. We have taken the ones that are no longer wanted or cared for and rescued them with love and patience to be amazing companions. We are NOT a breed specific rescue although we do specialize in the herding breeds and Pit Bulls. We take a unique approach to rescue, we rescue ONE at a time and make them the best dog they can be by the time they are placed in their forever home.
