About Us

Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter

Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter is a non-profit 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization that is 100% funded through donations.

Our mission is threefold:

  • To provide exceptional care for homeless animals
  • To promote spaying/neutering, microchipping and humane education
  • To place homeless cats and dogs in permanent, loving homes

At Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter, no animal is ever euthanized for lack of space.
