Community Partnership for Pets, Inc.

Community Partnership for Pets (CPPI) is a non-profit organization that has been working towards improving the lives of the pets in our community since 2005. Their programs included spay/neuter, pet retention, lost pet recovery and marketing/adverting/networking of shelter dogs and cats. Their goal is to reduce the number of dogs and cats entering county-run animal shelters and get those already at the shelter out quickly. Their new mission, as of July 1, 2017 is to work with poor, rural counties across NC to set up and fund the programs notes above. Since placing a donation box in our office, our clients have contributed $1757.56 to help aid in CPPI's mission. To look further into CPPI's programs and find out how you can help, visit their website via the link provided below.
