Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter

Our Approach

Behavior Modification

All dogs are prescreened through temperament testing. This program gives us insight into a dog’s individual personality and needs. Our adoption counselors use this information to match you with your perfect pet. Don’t be fooled by looks – sometimes the best-matched pet is the one you least expect – but once you find each other, the rewards are so worth it.

Kennel Enrichment

The kennel environment is, quite frankly, not natural. Sometimes this can stress the dogs to a point where he might appear aggressive – even though he is not. This program is designed to stimulate dogs emotionally, physically and mentally to help eliminate stress and avoid shelter burnout. These activities include multiple daily walks, playtime, outdoor time and socialization.

Free-Roaming Cattery

Cats weren’t meant to be caged. Our fabulous felines have their freedom to roam around two catteries which allow them to interact with each other and enjoy ample attention from potential adopters. Grab a toy and start playing – you know you want to.

Education & Outreach

Our Petucation program focuses on safe interaction with the community. Students and adults alike are treated to free lessons on humane care and treatment of animals. Our Incredible canines travel with our Outreach Coordinators to visit schools and workplaces, alike. You never know when you might meet your new best friend.

Progressive Animal Care

All of our animals are microchipped, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and receive exceptional veterinary care prior to adoption. These are essentials for responsible pet owners. We give you a “good pet parent” head-start and make sure you have all the information we can gather on your new pet.
