PAC

Helping the Helpless

Who we are and what we do

The name of our organization is PAC. It means, Protecting Animals from Cruelty. We help, rescue, and adopt animals that were abused and left behind. At our home location, we feed, brush, walk, take animals to go get checked by professional vets, and clean our animals regularly to make sure that the animals are healthy and in shape. We take in farm animals, pets and more. Our organization also helps out with Humane Wildlife organizations. We try to save and help animals and support other organizations that try to do the same thing. PAC also goes on missions in cities, towns and neighborhoods to find and help poor helpless animals. Some of the saddest stories turn out to be the best because of people that help and volunteer at PAC. We have saved and helped people adopt over 200 domesticated and trained animals. At PAC, we make sure our animals, and soon to be yours, are safe and on the bridge of happy and healthy. So grab your keys, volunteer, and help us save a life!

History

Chloe and Caroline were juniors in 1996 learning about animals at their High School. Something interested and inspired them about animals. “Animals are a big part of our lives and we are very eager to learn more about them and how we can help prevent animal abuse.”, said Chloe and Caroline. Later in their senior year, they did research about their own pets and Chloe and Caroline discovered that one of Chloe’s dogs was abused in the past. Chloe’s dog Darla, ( a pit mix), was abused when she had puppies. She is a very sweet dog and even Chloe’s cousin said that Darla acts amazing for being abused. This inspired Chloe and Caroline that possibly any dog and be helped and can change. Pit Bulls are one of their main targets, Chloe’s dog Darla, had shown them, and now they have to show others. They then created the organization PAC once they got out of college. PAC stands for, Protecting Animals from Cruelty. They have been working in PAC for 3 years and have helped people adopt hundreds of abused animals, and have worked on behavioral issues. Help and join the PAC today or donate!
