Charleston Animal Society’s mission has been the same since 1874, preventing cruelty to animals. We are a No Kill community and work daily to sustain it employing these 10 strategies: Fighting animal cruelty. Preventing unwanted births. Finding homes through adoption. Treating the abused and abandoned. Fostering animals. Reuniting loved ones. Reducing the # of free roaming cats through TVAR. Providing public vaccinations. Leading on humane education. Helping families keep their pets for life.
