- December 3-31, 2013: Forget Black Friday or Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is the way to kick the holiday season off right! This year, Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter and YouGiveGoods.com are teaming up to ensure that Tuesday, December 3rd is the start of a season of giving for our homeless animals! Make sure our dogs and cats have everything they need in the new year by donating to our Giving Tuesday Drive! This online donation drive runs through December 31st and is a convenient and easy way to give our homeless pets all the supplies they need to stay happy and healthy for months to come!
It's easy to help! To purchase food and supplies online at YouGiveGoods.com, just follow this link to our drive, click the "Donate To This Drive" button and select the food and supplies you want to contribute. At the end of the drive, the food and supplies will be delivered to Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter for you and you will receive a tax receipt via email.

- December 17, 2013: We at Mt. Pleasant understand the impact pets make on our lives. That’s why on December 17th at 7pm we’d like to take a moment out of our busy schedules to honor and remember those special souls that have forever touched our lives. Whether or not you are in attendance, your pet’s name will be announced at the ceremony. A minimum donation of $10.00 per pet will help us care for those cats and dogs not fortunate enough to have a home of their own this holiday season.
To honor your pet(s), please follow this GiveDirect link and donate the total amount for your pet(s) and in the comments section, please list your pet’s name and whether you will be attending the ceremony. Please also make sure to clarify if your donation is in honor or memory of a specific pet. Or download the Response Card and send it to Mt.
