At PNC, we believe in Community just as much as Quality and Service. Which is why we partner with various like-minded organizations who are working hard to enrich the lives and improve the health of people, pets, and the planet in our community. We frequently conduct raffles and other fundraising events to support these worthwhile groups while helping you get to know them on a more personal basis.
During December, customers who donate $5 to Dirty Little Paws will be able to fill one of our red baskets with as many treats and toys as they can fit in it and receive 20% off the entire purchase, and they will also be present at the monthly pet party. I’d like to be able to share this type of information in a highlighted fashion, as well as the organizations’ logo and contact information.
Enjoy reading a little bit about some of them below, and be sure to join the Insider’s Club newsletter to be notified when your favorite groups are visiting us here at the store!
Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation
The Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation, a non-profit 501c3, operates the Discovery Center, an extraordinaire collection of hands on nature activities that allow visitors to “taste nature” experiencing both the lagoon and the ecological reserve that resides in Carlsbad. We are located on Eastern end of the lagoon, and operate this amazing teaching hub to inform the public about how each and every individual can interact with this beautiful estuary serving all of North County; open seven days a week. This magnificent community nature center hosts an award -winning Environmental Education School Program, as well as lectures, bird walks, festivals, summer camps and other ecofriendly events throughout the year. Please stop by the Center to experience yourself how we inspire people through education & outreach to preserve the Agua Hedionda Lagoon, as an accessible and healthy watershed.
Canine Angels Service Teams
Our mission is to rescue guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, and other small exotic mammals from shelters, places of abandonment, and from persons relinquishing their pets. Whenever possible, we offer a safe house to these animals, irrespective of age, temperament, or health status. These animals will receive veterinary care and socialization in the hopes that they will be placed in a “forever” home. Animals given Sanctuary Status will be placed in our Foster Care Network to live out their lives in comfort and with love. We are also focused on educating foster parents, school children and others on the care, feeding and prevention of unwanted litters of these animals.
