Vaccinations Up-to-Date?

Is there an animal you are specifically interested in?

If the animal has not been spayed or neutered, it may be placed in a foster to adopt situation. This means that the animal is still the responsibility of the shelter, and MUST be quarantined from all animals in your household.
The animal, if placed in your care, will be required to be brought to our shelter for regular wellness visits or if it becomes ill. These visits will be scheduled on weekdays between 9 am and 3 pm and are mandatory.
How long will the puppy or kitten be left alone during the day?
I am planning to adopt the puppy or kitten at the end of my foster period.

I hereby release to Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter all access to veterinary and town license record of any and all animals I own or have owned.

Completion of the application in no way guarantees acquisition of a pet. I understand this application is the property of MPAS. MPAS has completed an initial behavioral evaluation, veterinary check, spay/neuter and updated the vaccinations of the pet, however we do not guarantee the future health or temperament of any pet.
