Adoptable Pets of the Month: Spike and Kiera
Adoptable Cat of the Month: Spike
Spike is a unique Siamese mix with striking blue eyes. He is an affectionate guy that we feel may have once been someone's beloved pet. All efforts were made by the rescue that found him, to locate an owner for this friendly boy but they couldn't find anyone looking for him. Spike loves to play and explore, but his all time favorite activity is a head scratch. Come to the Shelter today and find out what a loving addition Spike will be to your home.

Adoptable Dog of the Month: Kiera
Kiera is a stunning Shepherd/Dane mix returned by an owner who could no longer care for her. This sweet girl has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite. While she needs a few minutes to warm up to new people and situations, once she settles in, she is extremely affectionate and loving. Kiera walks nicely on a leash and always enjoys a walk around the neighborhood. Visit Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter today and ask to meet this sweet angel.

Recycle your old Cell Phones and Toner Cartridges
We are collecting used cell phones and toner cartridges (inkjet or laser) to benefit the animals we care about. The items will go to a company that specializes in recycling and refurbishing used technology.
Your donation will help protect the environment, while your unwanted cell phones and inkjet or laser cartridges will be recycled in accordance with EPA regulations or refurbished and reused. They will make your un-needed technology available to those who can use it, while keeping it out of the landfill. If improperly disposed of, the cell phone can pollute up to 132,000 liters of drinking water. Donations may be tax deductible.
We're very excited about this program. "This recycling program not only benefits Mt. Pleasant, but assists in preserving the environment and bringing communications to people who could not otherwise afford it. "
All cell phones (sorry, no accessories) and toner cartridges are accepted. A collection bin is available in our lobby.
