Support Community Pets

Legacy and Planned Giving

Leave your imprint of the lives of animals in need. 

If supporting our rescues is important to you now, please make plans to support them even after you are gone. One of the easiest and most enduring ways to leave a legacy gift is by including PETSinc in your will or naming PETSinc as a beneficiary of an insurance policy. Simply speak with your attorney or whoever is preparing your documents; and please let us know.

We created the PETSinc Legacy Society to recognize, honor, and thank all individuals and families who have made or will make a legacy gift to benefit our rescues. In recent years, PETSinc has received a number of significant legacy gifts. However, they came unexpectantly and sadly, we never had the opportunity to thank them or celebrate their generosity. Please let us know if you have included PETSinc in your estate plans or talk to us about becoming a member today – Penelope Wilson, Director of Development, at or 803-465-2487.

Why Choose Us


PETSinc was the first non-municipal shelter established in Lexington and Richland counties. For over 30 years, we have been dedicated to helping as many dogs and cats as possible; rehoming more than 2,000 each year.

Comprehensive Services

PETSinc provides affordable care to serve the medical needs of your pet and our rescues with our Low-Cost Vet Hospital and Clinic, Pharmacy services, and our Alternative Medicine Clinic providing rehabilitation and holistic care.

Rescue and Rehoming

PETSinc addresses both the physical and emotional needs of animals with our staff and volunteers spending as much time as possible with our rescues. Tender care and socialization is paramount to giving them their best chance to live their best life.

Mobile Vet Clinic

PETSinc has expanded it’s service area with our low-cost mobile unit to provide convenient access to services to keep your dog and cat as healthy as possible with vaccines, preventative care, and exams.


PETSinc strives to ensure the safety and well-being of your pet with our microchipping program. All pets adopted through PETSinc are microchipped to facilitate a safe return if they get lost.

Life-Long Adoptions

PETSinc’s adoption staff work tirelessly to match the right dog or cat with the adoptive person or family’s lifestyle. We offer meet and greets to give our rescues their best chance to see if they are a good fit with the potential adopter.

Training & Socialization

Our on-site trainer is certified as a Canine Trainer and Behavior Specialist and works to improve our dogs’ adoptability. We have volunteers who spend time with our cats and kittens to enhance their socialization.

No-Kill Shelter

PETSinc works closely with other shelters to save as many animals as possible and helps our community when they find abandoned animals or need to surrender their own pet.
