Adoptable Pets of the Month: Pebbles and Tuesday
Adoptable Cat of the Month: Pebbles

Pebbles get along well with other cats and would be happiest in a quiet home. Visit Mt. Pleasant today and find out what a beautiful, sweet kitty Pebbles is.

Adoptable Dog of the Month: Tuesday
After 7 ½ year in her home, Tuesday came back to Mt. Pleasant a victim of divorce. This sweet, energetic lab/shepherd mix is now looking for her second chance at a happy home. Equally content to accompany you on hikes or cuddle up with you on the couch, Tuesday is a great dog for someone looking for a loyal companion to share their days with. Come to the Shelter today and discover just how charming this loving girl is.

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.
