Charleston Animal Society is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization that depends on philanthropic gifts from individuals. We are an open-admissions animal shelter serving Charleston County, and we never turn an animal away! In 2009, we took in nearly 11,000 abandoned, sick, abused and neglected animals from throughout the Greater Charleston area.
Our mission is to promote responsible guardianship of domestic animals and advocate the compassionate treatment of all animals.
In order to accomplish our mission we: strive to promote temporary sanctuary to lost, abandoned or abused domestic animals; promote adoption; provide medical care to indigent pets; eliminate overpopulation of animals with aggressive spay/neuter and education programs; provide education about responsible pet guardianship; reunite lost pets and their owners; and reduce cruelty through stronger ordinances; investigations, partnerships and education.
