About Paws of Piedmont(PoP) Animal Rescue

Located near Charlotte, NC. We are a small rescue(100% volunteer run and foster based) that helps homeless cats and dogs. We do NOT have a physical shelter - all of our rescues are in private foster homes. We therefore require a completed application in order to meet our pets. Unless you come to an adoption event.

Our Mission:
Paws of Piedmont is a rescue organization that is dedicated to finding homes for abandoned and abused animals, educating the public about responsible pet ownership, and promoting the ultimate way to help reduce over population/euthanasia of pets by spaying and neutering of pets.
