Upstate Animal Advocates Form Partners in Animal Care, Launch Fundraising Event Series

Greenville County Animal Care Named Beneficiary of Newly Established 501c3

Greenville, SC -- Homeless animals in Upstate South Carolina are benefitting from a newly established non-profit organization called Partners in Animal Care. Its mission is to raise funds and bolster community awareness for Greenville County Animal Care, South Carolina’s largest open-admission shelter.

“Our organization is very excited to support Animal Care in its mission to build a NO KILL community.” said Sue Austin, Partners in Animal Care Board President. “Now, individuals and businesses, large and small, can use the 501c3 status of our organization to make tax-deductible donations that will support the state’s largest animal welfare organization.”

Partners in Animal Care supports Greenville County Animal Care through fundraising and grant writing initiatives. This year, Partners demonstrated its commitment to Animal Care with a $20,000 founding gift.

This summer, the organization launched a six-part Yappy Hour Event Series. The events are hosted at Brewery85 and the series is sponsored by Dog Culture, Lawrence Building & Renovation, and Wilson Kibler. The next event is September 23rd from 2-4pm. Leashed, friendly dogs are welcome!

“The next step in our mission to become NO KILL is increased fundraising and backing from the community,” explained Shelly Simmons, Animal Care Division Manager. “We’re thrilled to have the support of Partners in Animal Care and are confident that with increased awareness, the community will rally behind our efforts.”
