Our Mission

We are a small rescue wanting to help homeless cats and dogs.
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.
We also want to spread awareness about Heartworm Prevention.
