PNC Midwest Rescue is a small rescue group made up of volunteers, located throughout the Midwest area, dedicated
to the Pekingese.
Our purpose is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, abandoned, neglected and surrendered Pekingese.
These dogs are provided with the attention, care and medical treatment necessary including spaying/neutering, until a permanent home can be found.
Through the commitment of our volunteers, PNC also focuses on education of the public regarding puppy mills and responsible dog ownership, such as spaying/neutering, training and humane care of Pekingese.
Foster homes are truly the lifeblood of our organization. Our foster network of volunteers support and enjoy each other's company.
It is a fun and rewarding experience. Would you like to join us to help make a difference? Please fill out our Volunteer Application.
All PNC Midwest pups are altered when they join our family. This is very important as many have been breeders or are
rescued from shelters. We all must do our part in helping end the misery of the unwanted pets in society today.
PNC Midwest Rescue is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization and we are led by our Constitution (as attached in Adobe Acrobat format).
