Charleston’s homeless animals are counting on you!

New Adoption Procedure and Hours

Adoption Hours:
12:00pm – 5:00pm (Weekdays)
10:00am – 5:00pm (Weekends)

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. We will be limiting the number of people allowed in the shelter at any given time, to help with social distancing. We appreciate your patience when you arrive to look at our animals and adopt.

For the safety of you and our staff, everyone entering the shelter will be required to wear a face mask. Also, as an additional precaution, only children over the age of 13 are allowed into the shelter.

Looking for a new family member? Our animals for adoption are all listed in real-time on our website! If you don’t see an animal you are interested in, please bookmark the adopt a dog/cat page and check it often. (It changes daily and by the hour as pets are cleared for adoption). Animals that are listed at this moment in time are what we have available for adoption. Once an animal is adopted they are automatically taken off of the website (with the exception of animals located at offsite locations).
