Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter

The Adoption Process

Every shelter has its own way of doing things. We believe that every adopter is a good adopter. There is no judgment in our shelter – only a drive to make sure you have the right pet for your lifestyle and situation.

Please read below before completing the adoption application.

Of course, we need to have some basic guidelines. To be considered, you must:

  • Be 21 years of age or older
  • Have identification showing your present address
  • Have the knowledge and consent of your landlord
  • Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care of the animal

Your family is unique and so are the animals at Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter. There are many things to consider when choosing the right pet for you. We ask that all members of the household be present. That’s why we require that any/all children in the household be present. If you have a dog and are adopting another, you must bring him/her in for a meet & greet. No one knows our animals better than us, and we will do our very best to create the perfect pet match for you.


Every adopted animal is:
  • Spayed/neutered
  • Up-to-date on all vaccines
  • Dewormed
  • Microchipped

  • Dogs (9 months and up): $375
  • Puppies (under 9 months): $450
