Pitt Friends Animal rescue in Ayden, NC

Pitt Friends has been working to save animals from the Pitt County Animal Shelter since 2004. Our motto is Rescue- Rehab-Rehome. Countless dogs spend many weeks at the shelter waiting for their forever homes. It is with the help and dedication of volunteers, that we're able to make that wait more comfortable in foster homes while receiving medical care. Without them, many of the dogs may never know life outside the shelter. Additionally, as fosters are adopted, we're able to pull another dog in need into our care and free up space at the shelter. It's a win-win situation!
