MAFIA is a rescue organization dedicated to saving abused, abandoned, and unwanted animals in Fairfield County, South Carolina. (and other counties when resources are available) As pet lovers and volunteers, we continue working to improve our county shelter through fostering and adoption programs. We rescue abandoned and unwanted animals, provide them with medical care, and offer each a loving foster home until they are adopted. We rely only on tax-deductible donations and our hard work. For each animal we assist, we charge an adoption fee to help cover medical costs and to help us to save more deserving animals. We look for sincere people wanting a "forever" family pet. We truly believe a pet makes a house a home.

Come Meet Our Pets...
We are part of Petsmart Charities and adopt events bi-weekly at Petsmart in Columbia and Lexington SC. We have special events at various locations when venues and volunteers are available. Please check our Facebook page for scheduled events. We also welcome serious potential adopters to visit our foster homes by appointment only. For more information please call 803-606-1136 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Adoption Process...
We have a 2 page application to start proceedings for any potential adopter, and a more detailed 7 page contract when an adoption is made final. We do require a home visit before an adoption is final. All adoption decisions are made based on which adoptive family is the best match for the pet, not on a first come fist served basis.
