Piedmont Pound Paws, Inc. (PPP) is a 501(c)(3) licensed, foster based, pet rescue located in Southeast Missouri.
PPP began as an informal group of volunteers working together to find loving and responsible adopters or licensed rescues for animals that were unfortunate enough to find themselves in the city of Piedmont, Mo's kill pound. Over time, homeless pets, in extended areas, often including the Missouri counties of Wayne, Reynolds, Iron, Butler, Bollinger, and Carter were also helped. Today, after almost 6 years of keeping pets from being euthanized in the Piedmont pound, this continues while educating the community and helping to find resources for low income families so that they may responsibly care for their pets. "Piedmont Pound Paws, Inc." expanded and became a state licensed, foster based, pet rescue, while the informal volunteers continue as "Piedmont Paw Protectors," still working with the rescue division. This site is specifically for the purposes of adopting out as many pets as can be afforded to vet appropriately. Adoption fees are used to fund the vetting and adoption of more pets as well as to help low income owned pets to afford vetting services. Both of the PPPs continue to work together and are often seen as one in the same organization with 2 departments with the same goal to find responsible, loving homes for as many homeless, neglected pets as possible.
