Adoptable Pets of the Month: Natasha and Kaine
Adoptable Cat of the Month: Natasha
Natasha is a sweet young tabby with big owl-like eyes. She is under a year old and would like a nice family to grow up in. She is a charming kitten and would do well in most households.
Adoptable Dog of the Month: Kaine
Kaine is a cute, young lab mix that came to us from an overcrowded Shelter in the South. He is still in the puppy stage and would do best in a home with an experienced owner who has time for additional training. He will be a great companion dog as he grows older.

Recycle your old Cell Phones and Toner Cartridges
We are collecting used cell phones and toner cartridges (inkjet or laser) to benefit the animals we care about. The items will go to a company that specializes in recycling and refurbishing used technology.
Your donation will help protect the environment, while your unwanted cell phones and inkjet or laser cartridges will be recycled in accordance with EPA regulations or refurbished and reused. They will make your un-needed technology available to those who can use it, while keeping it out of the landfill. If improperly disposed of, the cell phone can pollute up to 132,000 liters of drinking water. Donations may be tax deductible.
We're very excited about this program. "This recycling program not only benefits Mt. Pleasant, but assists in preserving the environment and bringing communications to people who could not otherwise afford it. "
All cell phones (sorry, no accessories) and toner cartridges are accepted. A collection bin is available in our lobby.
