A TRUE PURPOSE. In 2011, our lives changed. My wife Vicki and I were introduced to Pawmetto Lifeline and Vicki found her true purpose in life. Our close friends Bill and JoAnn Dukes introduced us to Deloris and Stewart Mungo and it was ALL about the animals. We heard about the dream of building a NO KILL adoption center and we knew we wanted to be a part of it. My wife Vicki is an avid cat lover. She had been searching for a cause and she had found it at Pawmetto Lifeline. I also had a daughter, Jennifer Lynn, and she loved two things in life: the Gamecocks and her cat, Blue. Vicki and I had the honor of helping Pawmetto Lifeline build the Meyer Finlay Pet Adoption Center. We named two community cat rooms: Lake Purray and The Back Yard. Please come visit the cats sometime! Pawmetto Lifeline has set a great example for all animal organizations. It is a public-private partnership working together to improve the lives of companion pets. Since its founding, our community shelters have progressed from taking in over 20,000 homeless pets and euthanizing over 90% to taking in less than 8,200 companion pets and euthanizing 25% . A huge impact has been the Trap Neuter and Return (TNR) program. Vicki and I also had the opportunity to support and advocate in the political arena to get the Community Cat Diversion Program passed in both Lexington and Richland Counties. This ONE program has saved THOUSANDS OF LIVES each year. In its first year of this program, Pawmetto Lifeline served 4,700 cats through TNR with over 1,000 of them being placed up for adoption. Being a part of a REAL solution is an honor and a great way to live your life. Through our affiliation we have met so many wonderful people and developed lifelong friendships. May 2021 bring you good health and many blessings.

Even with the pandemic, companion pets like Sugar Bear continued to need our help. Our leadership made a decision to operate safely while maintaining all programs, operational hours and staffing. Closing our doors was never an option at Pawmetto Lifeline.

Vicki and Eddie Bignon


THANK YOU! Let us start by saying THANK YOU! Thank you for allowing our staff and volunteers to keep saving lives and serving our community and our state! A huge thank you to Governor McMaster who values animals and considers our work “essential” during a pandemic. When the going gets tough, our people get even tougher, which is how our country has achieved greatness! We solve problems to ensure all needs are met. We are truly amazed and we are blessed to have your support. Because of you, we have remained open when so many other animal clinics and shelters were closing their doors, not just statewide, but nationwide. We never reduced our hours and we never laid off one employee. We never stopped taking in homeless pets who were facing euthanasia in municipal shelters, and we continued to operate our mobile vaccine program EVERY weekend across the state of SC. We TNR’d thousands of cats and gave life to thousands of kittens that would have died if we had closed our doors, not to mention all the kittens and puppies that would have been born if we had closed our spay/neuter clinic entirely. People were so grateful that we did our best to be safe while serving those in need. There were times staff and volunteers were not allowed to be at our facility due to safety and personal health reasons as it relates to possible pandemic exposure. In spite of that, we shifted employees and trained new volunteers. We have, and continue to abide by, CDC and state safety guidelines while keeping our doors open. Was everything perfect? No, but it never is in any business or organization. However, we learned, we modified and we saved lives. We experienced many hardships and still rallied. Obstacles don’t diminish the importance of an organization’s mission. Obstacles and challenges present opportunities to recreate, solve problems and sometimes improve operations/outcomes. We are blessed to have a community that believes in our mission and has shown their support during a very trying 2020 year of constant challenges. On behalf of all the lives you saved, improved and supported, we thank you for making this year a huge success! May the year 2021 bring an abundance of blessings to you & your loved ones.

SHELTER MEDICINE The Shelter Medicine team has had a very busy year. We average 50 to 75 patients per week that are homeless, sick and deserving of a second chance at life. With both of our Municipal Shelter Partners focusing on managed intake and pet retention programs, the number of special medical cases our team treats has greatly increased. We regularly consult with the local specialty clinics and specialized surgery hospitals in these cases. Because of you, we are able to take the sickest, the oldest and the hardest to place and give them a chance at life. You are the Reason, We are the Lifeline.

CARE-A-VAN MOBILE VACCINE CLINIC Pawmetto Lifeline’s Care-A-Van mobile vaccine program offers affordable preventative services to pet owners including vaccines, heartworm tests, FeLV/FIV tests, nail trims, microchips, and heartworm/flea prevention.

COMMUNITY CAT PROGRAM The Community Cat Program works with community members to Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) community cats in their area. Since the induction of the Community Cat Ordinance on October 1, 2017, the Community Cat Program has been the hub for Lexington County’s Public-Private TNR partnership and provides services for the surrounding counties. With the support of Lexington and Richland County Council and our community members, the Community Cat Program has TNR’ed a total of 10,653 cats since October 1, 2017. Even in the middle of a pandemic, our volunteers and community members continue to safely bring in cats for desperately needed medical care. In 2020 alone, 4,419 cats were TNR’ed at Pawmetto Lifeline. Of those, 2,776 were from Lexington County and 648 from Richland County. Euthanasia rates have plummeted in the Midlands since the start of the Community Cat Program. We are so thankful for our community’s support of TNR! DID YOU KNOW kittens as young as 4 months old can get pregnant and have 3 or more litters per year? Pawmetto Lifeline’s Spay and Neuter Clinic accepts one Community Cat in a humane trap Monday - Thursday WITHOUT an appointment. More details on our website!

Benefits of TNR

RESOURCES

It immediately stabilizes the size of the colony by eliminating new litters. The nuisance behavior often associated with feral cats dramatically reduces, including the yowling and fighting that comes with mating activity and the odor of unneutered males spraying to mark their territory. The returned colony guards its territory, preventing unsterilized cats from moving in, reducing problem behavior. The number of kittens and cats flowing into local shelters diminishes. This results in lower euthanasia rates and the increased adoption of cats already in shelters.

Special Pets for Adoption Some of our adoptable pets have been waiting for their fur-ever family for far, far too long. These special animals are often overlooked because they have certain requirements for the type of home they need. Give these wonderful animals a chance and adopt! Please read their brief introductions below and visit our website at www.pawmettolifeline.org for their full bio and to fill out an application!

e: Updat ! TED ADOP 020 12/6/2

Brinkley

Male | 8 years old Intake: 8/13/2015 Brinkley suffered very tramautic abuse in his early years, resulting in neurological issues. He is a happy boy but with boundaries. He has “body handling sensitivity” and cannot be touched. He loves to go on walks several times a day, chase his toys, and just hang out. Brinkley needs a structured home where he is loved for who he is today. No kids. Free medical services for life at Pawmetto Lifeline!

Bernard

Male | 3 years old Intake: 9/5/2019 Bernard is a good boy! Once Bernard trusts you, you are his snuggle partner for life! Some of his favorite things are car rides with humans, walks, playing with other higher energy dogs & treats! Bernard needs a regimented leader who is attentive, active and willing to enforce boundaries & work on training. He will do best in a home without children but would thrive in a home with another dog!

Spot

Male | 3 years old Intake: 2/3/2019 Spot needs a confident dog owner with deaf dog experience that will give him the time and training he needs to feel comfortable. Spot is very intelligent and eager to learn. He is very treat-motivated and already knows some hand signals. Since he can’t hear, Spot startles easily so he must see you before you touch him. Once he knows and trusts you, he is a great dog that loves his people!

Petunia’s Story...

Saturn

Phyllis

Female | 4 years old Intake: 1/29/2020 Saturn is the one true “Torti Queen”. She’s gorgeous, sassy, spicy, intelligent, playful and must be worshipped daily. Once she warms up to her mere human peasants, her fierce exterior begins to melt. Her highness loves being pampered with attention and gentle brushing. Once you meet her, you’ll barely be able to resist her Torti beauty and the tantalizing batting of her eyes!

Female | 7 months Intake: 6/18/2020 Sweet Phyllis has been diagnosed with a heart murmur caused by a hole in her heart. She is super friendly, sweet and playful. While she runs and plays like any other kitten, her life expectancy may not be quite as long as others. But, Phyllis still lives her life to the fullest! We are seeking that special forever family that can give her an amazing life no matter how long that may be!

Update : ADOPT ED! 12/11/2

020

Petunia, a 5-year-old Terrier mix, was found on the side of the road by a Good Samaritan just before Christmas 2019. She was found completely paralyzed in her back legs, but that doesn’t stop her one bit! Petunia loves people and adores children, but would be best in a home without other animals as she prefers to be the center of attention! Petunia has learned to expertly use her wheelchair and is even able to bunny hop to get around when she is not on wheels. Won’t you give this special girl a chance? As of date of publication, Petunia is still searching for her forever family. 13


PIT PRIORITY ----- PROGRAM -----

The breed that continues to suffer more than any breed in our nation is the Pit Bull ,AKA Bully Breed. In 2020, they are still dying at the highest rates in the municipal shelters statewide and nationwide. They are slower to adopt often because of their unknown backgrounds and the perception that has been created by irresponsible owners who use them for profit. The reality is with no socialization or training, it is challenging to adopt them with families that have small children. Pawmetto Lifeline’s dream is to ensure that the bully breed ceases to die due to homelessness. We have a program to assist this breed called the Pit Priority Program. How does this program work? If you find a stray pit bull, we ask that you be his/her Guardian Angel and Advocate. Commit to keeping them safe while Pawmetto Lifeline provides their medical care for FREE and until we have space to place them on our adoption row or place them with a no-kill rescue organization that are partners in northern US. We need to keep these dogs out of the municipal shelters as they already have far too many pit bulls waiting hopelessly to be saved. We need people NOT to take the easy way out by putting all the responsibility on the municipal shelter staff. Many times the “easy way out” equates to a death sentence for the dog. Being a Guardian Angel may be inconvenient. It may take time and it might even cost you a little money. But, it will be worth it. Your efforts will ensure that the pit bull you found receives a life in a loving home because of the efforts of Pawmetto Lifeline. A municipal kill-shelter will take them and you walk away hoping that you saved a life. BUT, the reality is that you may have just taken the innocent dog you found to a place that most likely will take their life. Municipal shelters have the same challenges we have at Pawmetto Lifeline—space and resources are limited.

Constantine and Watson

Watson’s New Family

Constantine did all the rights things! He found Watson on the streets in South Carolina. He fostered him while we provided Watson’s medical services and while we marketed Watson to our no-kill rescue organization partners. Watson never entered a municipal shelter where pits are still dying at the highest rate in South Carolina. Watson is now in his forever home in Maine. Constantine was truly Watson’s GUARDIAN ANGEL and ADVOCATE!

Our CEO, Denise Wilkinson, is the Chair of the SC Animal Legislative Committee and the members of this Committee have introduced the Life Saving Pit Bull Bill. This bill encourages all pit bull owners to alter their pit bulls. If the dog is NOT altered, the owner is required to license the dog by paying a $500 annual registration fee. This fee can then be used by the local communities to spay/neuter pit bulls. It’s a win/win for the pit bull, the municipal shelters and the tax payers. It’s also a way to help low-income families who want to alter their pit bulls but can not afford to do so. The bill ONLY applies to people that own unaltered pit bulls but the funds generated from the bill supports all communities in need. Why continue to pay millions of dollars running municipal shelters where 60%-70% of all the dogs being euthanized are pit bulls? You will hear some animal organizations state that this bill is discriminating against the breed. The pit bull is already being discriminated. That’s like saying you can’t introduce bills or laws to protect a vulnerable population. We target populations through legislation all the time to protect that population and that is the purpose of the Life Saving Pit Bull Bill. Our goal is to protect the breed while encouraging people that own pit bulls to alter them. Those that want to continue to breed them should be responsible for helping others alter their offspring. It’s called accountability. It’s called protecting the innocent and the vulnerable.

If you find a stray pit bull and you are willing to be a Guardian Angel, please send an email to intake@pawmettolifeline.org or call (803) 465-9189.


HAPPY RETIREMENT

! s a e D Karen

Pawmetto Lifeline is special for many reasons but one major reason is the staff that we are blessed to work with every day. Karen Deas is no exception. She has worked for our organization since January of 2012. She was part of the grand opening of our facility and she was part of the major changes and growth that we experienced. Karen was the type of employee, when asked, she never said “I can’t” or “That’s not not my responsibility.” She always stepped up and gave every task 110%. Karen handled all of our special projects internally and with the Board. She wrote grants for the organization that had a profound impact on the services that we offered to both homeless pets and privately owned pets. She managed the logistics for our two major fundraisers: Fur Ball Moonlight Gala and Bark to the Park. Karen was an expert proofer to the point that all staff members knew she was the “go-to” for editing and proofing before sending anything to print or out to the public. To have the opportunity to work with a colleague that was professional, dedicated and a true believer of our mission was a blessing and an honor.

Karen, never ever doubt the lives you have helped us save and the impact that you have had on this organization. I know retiring should be a happy and celebratory time but for us it is with mixed emotions. We hope this next phase of your life will be blessed with good health, lots of special times with your beloved husband Buzzy and an opportunity to enjoy your hobbies. Please remember us when you do your baking. You are already missed. Thank you for being a part of the Pawmetto Lifeline family.

In 2020, the foster program provided over 1,400 pets with loving foster homes. We gained so many new foster homes this year with COVID-19 on the rise and animal lovers working from home and opening their homes to dogs and cats in need. There will never be a facility big enough to accommodate all shelter animals in need. Pawmetto Lifeline relies on compassionate foster parents to temporarily house and care for shelter animals. Foster homes allow us to save as many lives as possible, beyond the limits of our facility! The foster program provides foster homes for pets who are too young to stay at the facility and need extra care that can be provided in a home. Other foster pets are older and sick and need the comfort of a quiet home.

Theresa Cooke, Foster of the Year

The foster program has expanded by opening a Neonatal Nursery. The Nursery helps neonatal kittens and puppies until they can be picked up by their foster parent. The Nursery ensures that all needs are met for these tiny babies! The foster program also provides homes for the Boots in Service program and Pet Retention program. Boots in Service honors our veterans who have risked their lives to protect our country. Boots in Service provides care and boarding for pets should a veteran need medical attention. The Pet Retention program provides temporary homes for pets in need until their family can provide for them again. Foster homes allow us to save as many lives as possible, beyond the limits of our facility! The transformation of a broken animal into a confident and adoptable pet is amazing to witness and so rewarding. We would like to thank our foster parents for the endless hours you put into caring for our pets. Words cannot express how much your hard work every day is appreciated. You have been cooperative and understanding while adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic. When a foster parent says “I want to love this animal until it is ready for adoption�, we are deeply moved. You are giving homeless pets a second chance at life and for that we are eternally grateful. Thank you for your continued support! Sincerely,

The Foster Team Email: fosterheroes@pawmettolifeline.org

EMERGENCY ANIMALS ...where are they now? PAX was found on the side of a highway by animal control and brought to a local

shelter who contacted us for help. Pax was unable to move most of his body or even lift his head but we knew he deserved a chance! Thanks to our generous donors, Pax was able to see several veterinarians, including a neurologist, and we had a plan for Pax’s treatment. He was on the road to recovery. Thanks to lots of crate rest, laser therapy treatments, and pain management, Pax slowly regained the ability to sit, stand, and eventually run. Pax found his forever home in 2020 with a family who adores him!

TOPAZ came to Pawmetto Lifeline in March 2020 and was found to have a severe

break of both bones in his front leg. At only one-year-old, we knew Topaz deserved the chance to keep his leg. Thanks to our generous donors, Topaz was able to see an orthopedic surgeon who was able to surgically repair his leg with full mobility. Topaz healed nicely and was soon adopted by his forever family at the end of his recovery.

SUNFLOWER came to Pawmetto Lifeline very shy and shut down with no trust in humans. She escaped her foster home and was on the run for more than 30 days, during which time she was struck by a car. A huge thank you to everyone who participated in sharing sightings and the professional trapper who helped us capture Sunflower. Once safely back in our care, Sunflower was diagnosed to have a dislocated hip requiring surgical repair. Sunflower, now renamed Tali, shortly found her forever home and has recovered from her surgery. She is flourishing with her family and is learning to play with toys and trust humans again.

POLLY came to Pawmetto Lifeline after being found on the side of the road, presumably hit by a car. While she had very little outward injuries, Polly suffered from head trauma, shock, and internal bleeding. After several days of hospitalization, she was placed with her foster home where she is flourishing. She is still searching for her forever home at the time of this publication!

SENIOR DOGS HAVE SOMETHING TO BARK ABOUT THIS YEAR! Pawmetto Lifeline is the proud recipient of a $7,500 annual grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization! This grant provides care for at-risk senior dogs in SC. We are one of 64 welfare groups in 30 states which were chosen from more than 288 applicants. Please thank The Grey Muzzle Organization by following them on social media!

Babies, Babies, Babies! Kitten and Puppy Season had no mercy on Pawmetto Lifeline this year! We took a total of 1,047 kittens & 432 puppies into our adoption program! We would like to give a huge shout-out to our nursery staff and volunteers for taking care of these fragile and often sick little ones! Connie Rosen, Neonatal Foster Care Assistant, giving “Dalton” a medicated bath in the nursery. Connie was given the “Unsung Hero of the Year” award for her lifesaving efforts with babies!


COMMUNITY OUTREACH BOOTS IN SERVICE To honor our veterans who have risked their lives to protect our country, we created a program called Boots in Service that will help care for pets of veterans should they need medical attention away from home and no other option is available to care for their pet. There are veterans in need of medical services who will refuse treatment due to the lack of options for their pets while they receive important, and sometimes life-saving, services. They will sacrifice their health to care for their pets. Through referrals from Veterans Affairs, Pawmetto Lifeline offers boarding, foster homes, medical services and training at no charge to the veterans. “Baby Girl”

The program, named for Governor Henry and First Lady Peggy McMaster’s late English Bulldog, Boots, is funded by the Michael J. Mungo Foundation.

“PET SOUP” PET FOOD PANTRY Pet Soup provides pet food as an emergency resource to financially-struggling families. By providing families in need with resources to feed their pet, it decreases the number of animals surrendered to the local animal shelters, reducing pet overpopulation here in the Midlands. Discounted spay/neuter appointments are offered to our Pet Soup clients who reside in Lexington and Richland Counties. For more information on participating, please contact Alexa Sparkman at asparkman@pawmettolifeline.org or (803) 465-9187.

SOPHIE’S GOOD SAMARITAN MEDICAL FUND Pawmetto Lifeline receives phone calls every day from people who love their pet, but cannot afford to pay for their medical care. Sophie’s Good Samaritan Medical Fund helps these pet owners by providing financial aid for unexpected medical expenses. Email Jack Sloan at jsloan@pawmettolifeline.org if you’d like to donate.

SUE KLINE PET LOSS BEREAVEMENT PROGRAM Pawmetto Lifeline offers free Pet Loss/Grief Group Counseling Sessions throughout the year. Due to COVID-19, sessions are held virtually, making them accessible worldwide! Contact Jackie Roberts at jroberts@pawmettolifeline.org for details.

YOU ARE THE LIFELINE This year marks my fifth year with Pawmetto Lifeline as the Director of Development and 2020 has been quite a year. Many nonprofit organizations chose to shut their doors and suspend services during the pandemic. Pawmetto Lifeline looked around, surveyed the situation, and determined that animals need the same care despite the world-wide pandemic. We have chosen to operate and learn to live with COVID-19 and not hide from this outbreak. To insure our employees are safe, we instituted additional safety protocols for our approximately 80 employees and our facility. I am happy to report that to date we have had NO employees contract COVID-19. I do not want to sound like a “Pollyanna” and suggest that there have not been challenges this year. There have been many challenges and we have continued to rise to the occasion. Pawmetto Lifeline holds two major fundraising events each year: Bark to the Park in the spring and the Fur Ball Gala in the fall. Bark to the Park was rescheduled twice and ultimately morphed into Bark Around Your Block, where participants held walks in their neighborhoods, while adhering to the COVID-19 guidelines, and walked to raise funds for our companion pets. The Fur Ball Moonlight Gala was reimagined with a smaller number of attendees with double the event space to ensure social distancing could be followed. Guests received dog and cat-themed masks as a welcome gift from our presenting sponsor, Jim Hudson Lexus. Both events, despite the pandemic, were a great success and met our fundraising goals. We offer an extensive array of animal care services at Pawmetto Lifeline. Our goal is to offer AFFORDABLE vet care to local pet owners and to decrease the number of homeless pets through spay/neuter for animals in our area. We charge minimal fees for these services and serve a large volume of companion pets each year. For example, we operate four mobile Care-A-Vans every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and see an average of 1,000 pets every weekend. We also provide an average of 50 spay/neuter surgeries every day which equates to approximately 10,000 surgeries per year. The low-cost services provided to public clients offers an affordable option for our community to keep their pets healthy. This also equates to nearly 40% of our annual income. Because of generous donors, like you, we are able to financially assist people who love their pets and want to take care of them, but don’t always have the means to do so at a private clinic. Our current annual operating budget is $6,500,000 which is all raised through individuals and businesses, both small and large with some grants. Pawmetto Lifeline receives NO GOVERNMENT FUNDING from Richland and Lexington Counties for its operations. I want to thank all of you for helping us to make it through 2020. We are humbled by your generosity. Our motto/theme this year has been to ask everyone if they can contribute what they did last year. If you have not made your 2020 gift we would greatly appreciate your support! THANK YOU isn’t adequate, but it’s the best I can offer for now. Next year is going to be a better year for all of us -- I promise!

BE A SUSTAINING LIFELINE MONTHLY GIVING MEMBER

There were over 8,200 homeless pets in the Midlands in 2019/2020 and over 2,000 of those same pets were euthanized in the past year. We believe this is morally and ethically wrong. There is a better way to solve pet overpopulation. Through our initiatives of adoptions, medical and spay/neuter programs, rescue collaboration and humane education, we have a proven solution to transform the Midlands into a no-kill community, meaning no healthy, adoptable pet is euthanized simply because he or she is homeless. The Midlands currently has a 25% euthanasia rate, BUT there is still work to be done! Will you help us save more lives in 2021 by giving monthly? Join the Lifeline and partner with Pawmetto Lifeline to save lives and help create a better community!

LIFELINE BUSINESS GIVING PROGRAM

As of 2019, Pawmetto Lifeline has instituted a program to build a base of lifeline small business partners. We’ve had individuals make monthly contributions to Pawmetto Lifeline, but now we want to build a membership base of businesses who will make an annual contribution towards our operating budget. We have established three different levels ($500, $1,000 and $1,500) and each have different marketing benefits! Questions? Please contact Jack Sloan at (803) 465-9191 or email jsloan@pawmettolifeline.org.

REQUIRED MINIMUM 401K/IRA DISTRIBUTIONS

At the end of 2016, a significant change to the tax code impacted individuals 70.5 years and older who have to take a Required Minimum Distribution from their 401K or IRA. Per this change, you may now distribute up to $100,000 per year to an approved 501c(3) with non-personal federal tax consequences. Pawmetto Lifeline, a well-respected LOCAL not-for-profit in the Midlands, would like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss this tax tool. If you care about companion pets and want to make a profound difference in our community, please contact Jack Sloan at (803) 465-9191. We can schedule a tour of our facility and help you implement this process. This is a great option when the individual does not itemize because of the increased standard deduction.

ABOUT US Pawmetto Lifeline is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization in the Midlands of South Carolina.

OUR MISSION We seek to establish a no-kill community in the Midlands, meaning no healthy, adoptable dog or cat dies because it is homeless. In the past year, more than 8,000 companion animals entered the animal control systems in Richland and Lexington counties. Of those, over 2,000 healthy, adoptable pets were euthanized. We are dedicated to reducing that number to zero.

VALUES To create a better humanity through education and collaboration by promoting our values of: • Courage to create change for the betterment of the community • Collaboration with all like-minded individuals and organizations who strive to achieve a No-Kill community • Respect, Justice and Compassion for those in need 1275 BOWER PARKWAY COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA 29212 WWW.PAWMETTOLIFELINE.ORG
