To answer your questions:

So who are we?  We are family, maybe not by relation but in our hearts. Philp and I (Annette Palmer) are married and together we have 6 wonderful children, ranging in age from 31 - 16.  Philip is a retired member of the US Armed Forces for over 26 years and I am a full time accountant.  Lori Dalrymple is a wife, mother of two, ages 22 and 18, office manager, and my best friend. We have always been dog lovers, have many dogs of our own, and support the no-kill movement. 

How did we get started? It started with a foster named Pooch several years ago.   I responded to a post from a local non-profit rescue about a dog named Pooch who was injured and about to give birth with no place to go.  Her foster had injured her back and could no longer care for her.  Pooch was being kept outdoors with the threat of temperatures dropping below freezing and she was due to give birth within a week.  This rescue made many pleas to the public to find a foster for this girl prior to this post and my heart went out to her.  In that moment, I reached out to the rescue and volunteered to foster this scared lonely chocolate Shar Pei mix.  Pooch ended up delivering 10 puppies, one we lost within the first week. The experience of fostering not only Pooch, but caring for her puppies was like no other. Pooch and her puppies touched the hearts of my husband, Philip, and my best friend, Lori.  Together we worked to find safe, happy, forever homes for all the puppies.  Philip and I made Pooch a permeant part of our family.  Our work to find forever homes for the puppies included attending adoption events, screening applicants, performing home visits, and checking references. We expanded out and became involved in field rescues, fundraising, and welcomed additional fosters.  From there I knew I found my passion in life; to be an advocate and provide a sanctuary for homeless, abused, and neglected dogs, ensure they are provided with adequate veterinary care, food, shelter, and preventatives, and to find them safe happy forever homes.  It is with great pleasure that my husband and best friend share the same passion as I. We eventually evolved into our own entity, Pooch's Partners Animal Rescue, though we continue to volunteer and partner with local rescue groups for the common mission of supporting the no-kill movement and reduce animal cruelty and neglect.      

Our mission is to support the no-kill movement, abolish animal cruelty and neglect, and drastically reduce the number of homeless and unwanted animals in Lexington County and surrounding areas.

Why? There are thousands of homeless, abused, and neglected animals in the United States.  We believe no treatable companion animal should be euthanized because they are injured, because shelters do not have enough room, because they are a stray, or because they are no longer wanted by their owners. 

How?  Though we are not nationwide, we will do our part in Lexington and surrounding counties in South Carolina by advocating the no-kill movement, rescuing homeless, abused, and neglected animals.  We help educate the community about various pet issues and trending pet topics. We are able to do this through the loving hearts of fosters who are willing to provide a temporary sanctuary for homeless, abused and neglected animals.  We provide the proper medical care and preventatives, spay/neuter the animals under our care to help population control, and promote the adoption of healthy companion animals.
