Tri-County Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization serving Lincoln, Gaston and other surrounding counties. We are committed to ending pet homelessness in this area and we need your continued support. If you cannot adopt a pet, then support Tri-County in other ways. We need volunteers and donations to continue our mission of finding homes for these unwanted animals.
Thanks to generous supporters like you, Tri-County Animal Rescue, INC. touches the lives of thousands of people and their pets every year. Your charitable donation helps us continue the critical hands-on work we do for the animals that are a part of our rescue each day. We treat animals that need medical attention, prepare them for adoption, caring for them until they find their forever homes, and get mandatory spay/neuter surgeries to prevent unwanted litters. Please donate today and help make a difference in the lives of homeless pets. Tri-County Animal Rescue, INC. is a 501c(3) not for profit organization, tax ID number 56-2101756, that relies solely on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to advance our mission. We do not receive funds from any government agencies or national groups to sustain our operations. Our loyal donors are vital to our success and our ability to provide the best possible care for the animals we serve.
