About Charleston Animal Society

Charleston Humane Society was founded in Charleston and received a state charter in 1874. Its immediate concerns were to combat the rampant cruelty to animals. This included the neglect of work-animals, the inhumane shipping of cattle, and the epidemic of stray dogs.

In 1940, the Society adopted the name of its early Board President, John Ancrum, honoring a contribution made from his estate.

We then changed our name to Charleston Animal Society to better reflect our location and what we do!

During the mid-1900's, the organization worked to outlaw cruel animal "sports". One such example was gander pulling which involved a horseback rider tearing the head from a live goose while racing full speed. The society also campaigned successfully to improve the abominable conditions of the city-operated dog pound.

A Safe Haven

The society continued to work toward a more humane environment to house abandoned animals and permanent homes. In 1948, private funds were raised to open the first animal shelter on Meeting Street. As the pet population grew, other sites followed. Volunteers managed the operation of these facilities and local veterinarians donated their services.
Charleston Animal Society assumed residency at its Leeds Avenue location in 1981. This first-class facility reflected a long and cooperative partnership between the agency and Charleston County Council. Upon completion of the shelter, the county terminated its own animal pound and contracted with the SPCA to provide care for all of the animals collected by animal control officers. With the communities help, in 2008,we moved into our current shelter which is State of the Art. A 31,000 sq ft of lifesaving space , a high volume AAHA accredited spay-neuter clinic and amazing animal services sheltering facility.
The Charleston Animal Society continues to fight animal cruelty, find safe homes for unwanted, injured or abandoned animals and reduce pet overpopulation.
Your Support is Needed to Continue this Tradition of Care and Commitment to Excellence. Help us alleviate suffering and adopt a shelter pet today.
