Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter's mission is threefold: to provide exceptional care for homeless animals; to promote spaying/neutering, microchipping and humane education; and to place homeless cats and dogs in permanent, loving homes. At Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter, no animal is ever euthanized for lack of space. While Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter operates from a waiting list for animal surrenders, we also are known as a friend in the animal welfare community, offering assistance to overcrowded facilities with adoptable animals and participating in a variety of animal rescue initiatives as part of our Shelter Partnering Program. Our vision is a community where there are no abused, abandoned, neglected, or homeless animals.
