About Us

The Charleston Animal Group’s (The Charleston Dog Shelter) mission is to provide temporary shelter to stray, abandoned or surrendered dogs while adhering to our no kill practice and to find each a lifelong, loving home with responsible owners. Our overall goal is to reduce the number of unwanted dogs through aggressive spay/neuter programs and educational opportunities. 

We take care of these animals as if they were part of our family, and we strive to get them adopted to families who will love and care for them just the same.

 

You can't change a dog’s past, but you can rewrite his future. Saving one dog won't change the world, but for that one dog, the world surely changes forever.

 

Here at the Charleston Animal Interest Group, or locally known as, The Charleston Dog Shelter, our volunteers dedicate time out of their days to come spend it with these pups. They feed them, make sure their water bowls are filled up, and even take them on walks around the facility to let a little energy out!
