All of our pets come spay-neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Can you make room for one more? When you adopt, you save a life!


More than an Animal Shelter

Charleston Animal Society touches the lives of 20,000 animals each year, whether it is through our lifesaving efforts, adoption, spay-neuter or other rescue services.

AAHA Accredited Spay-Neuter Clinic

Our Sam Greer Spay-Neuter Clinic is accredited by AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association), representing the highest standards of veterinary excellence.


Thanks to community and national partners, Charleston Animal Society is able to provide services to people and their pets who may not get them otherwise in both rural and urban communities. We also provide humane education in classrooms and summer camps.

Animal Advocacy

Charleston Animal Society’s bedrock principle is the prevention of cruelty to animals. We will always strive to be the voice of animals in our community and beyond and fight cruelty, wherever it exists.

Frisky a Go Go!
