Adopt a Cat

Please watch this urgent message from our President & CEO Joe Elmore.

New Adoption Policy and Hours

New Adoption Hours: 11:00am -3:30pm
Adoptions: By Appointment Only

Charleston Animal Society is open for adoptions. However, we have adjusted our hours and operations in a way to help our team and community to remain safe and healthy by minimizing people-to-people contact risking exposure to Covid-19.


At this time, we will be taking appointments for people that want to adopt an animal via Facebook (even if you are not on Facebook, you can still see our facebook page and book there). Please click on the “Book” button near the top of the Facebook page to make an appointment.

When booking the appointment please include your phone number so we can contact you. We are unable to hold animals. If you have any questions or need assistance booking an appointment please contact our Director of Adoptions, Courtney Gumienny, cgumienny@charlestonanimalsociety.org.

We Have the Purrfect Cat for You!

Cats at Charleston Animal Society come in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes and personalities. All of our animals come micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and tested for their behavior and health. Come visit us at 2455 Remount Road in North Charleston! Can you make room for one more?

This Week’s Special

We are offering FREE adoptions on all dogs and cats at the shelter.

If you can’t adopt, ask about our new initiative, “Operation Whiskers!” This is where you will foster one of our cats and find a friend or neighbor to adopt. We provide everything you need to succeed. Just ask one of our adoption specialists about “Operation Whiskers” on your next visit. Come visit us at 2455 Remount Road today. Adopt and find your soul pet! You can also see many of our cats available for adoption at Pounce Cat Cafe in downtown Charleston plus area Petco and Pet Smart stores.

PLEASE NOTE: Cat adoption specials only apply to adoptions at the shelter and do not extend to off-site adoption locations.

Will You Sponsor an Adoption?

Whether you are a dog person or a cat person, this your opportunity to sponsor an adoption! Throughout the year, we offer “fee-waived” adoptions to encourage people to adopt. They are hugely successful and most of the adopters are people who already have one pet and want a second. Your adoption sponsorship will cover the adoption fees for one animal, dramatically increasing their chance for a new, happy life. And remember, when the dogs and cats lay down at night with their new families, they will have you to thank for their warm, cozy home.

Provide a Cat a Kuranda Bed!

Give our cats and dogs a lift with the orthopedic support and off-the-floor comfort of our patented chew-proof Kuranda beds. These beds offer a wonderful source of comfort and security for our animals as they wait at the shelter for their permanent new homes.

We have a Charleston Animal Society Kuranda page already set-up and ready to go. Just click here and when you make a donation purchase, the bed is sent automatically to Charleston Animal Society. Your gift is also tax-deductible!
