PNC 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.
