Improve an animal's quality of life through

Nicky’s Second Chance Fund

Countless homeless animals in need pass through the front door of Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter to be loved, honored, and cared for, whatever the cost. 

Some animals need higher levels of care. Nicky’s Second Chance Fund earmarks monies to treat animals that have medical needs above and beyond our normal high standards of care.

Our caring staff does everything possible to ensure treatment and full recovery for these animals, preparing each one of them for his or her best possible opportunity to finding a forever home…no matter the cost.

our mission

Nicky’s Second Chance Fund is named after a dog who endured years of abuse and neglect, but found peace and love in her final days at Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter. We honor Nicky’s memory by using these donations to help get every animal, no matter what its medical needs, into permanent homes as quickly as possible.

Please donate to Nicky’s Second Chance Fund.  All of our animals in need thank you!
