We are Partners in Animal Care.



Partners in Animal Care is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization that supports Greenville County Animal Care, the state’s largest open-admission animal shelter in its efforts to save more homeless animals and attain a “No-Kill” status. Partners in Animal Care aims to do this by raising awareness of the shelter and its needs and by fund-raising assistance. Our all-volunteer board members (no one receives a salary) are animal-loving Upstate residents, several of whom volunteer regularly at Animal Care on Furman Hall Road.
