Success Stories

  • Thanks to Mt Pleasant I was able to find the perfect dog for me. Every time I went there the staff and volunteers were always great to deal and genuinely cared about the animals. I would highly recommend Mt Pleasant to anyone considering rescuing.

  • The best Shelter Around! I have adopted 2 pets from them. The facility is very clean. The staff is very knowledgeable and caring! They know all the animals by name and you can tell the are well cared for. After your adoption is complete, you receive a folder with all their info. They neuter and spay and give their starter shots which is in their folder.
