    I've never dealt directly with this shelter, but have talked to people who have adopted their pets from Mt. Pleasant. Everyone has said good things about this facility and it's staff.

  • 6. Nice falicitly

    by: BarbaraRushman

    I visited this shelter a few times and was impressed with the cleanliness and brightness. I think they do a pretty good job. The location is easy to find but being surrounded by malls and stores, the outside isn't that great. It would be nice to have a bigger piece of property for the dogs to run.

    Pros

    Very clean, cheery place for a shelter

    Cons

    not a great place to take dogs for a walk

  • 7. Can't say enough good things about Mt. Pleasant

    by: bnodoubt

    Mt. Pleasant is a great shelter in Morris County with a very dedicated and animal experienced staff. They often take animals from the shelter I work and donate food to us which is always a huge help. They are wonderful people working on behalf of homeless animals.

    Pros

    Wonderful, smart and caring staff

    Cons

    None

  • 9. Do Good Work

    by: sdruss3227

    This group has been doing good work for a long time. They seem to take good care of their animals and have dedicated volunteers. They have a well-publicized walk each year.

  • 10. Nice shelter

    by: mookienon

    The animal shelter has a great selection of dogs and it is nice to see the cats living in a common room, and not in cages.

    Pros

    it is a no kill shelter

    Cons

    They aren't the easiest to find

  • 11. Good Shelter

    by: Maddiemoney

    If you can get your pet into Mt. Pleasant I think you can feel comfortable knowing that the dog or cat will be well cared as they work to find it a new home. They have a good reputation, nice staff and the space to get dogs outside occasionally out of their confinement. Remember this is a limited intake shelter so you just can't show up with a pet. Call firs.

    Pros

    Positive Program

    Cons

    none

  • 12. Great, generous shelter

    by: meyera26

    Mt. Pleasant is a wonderful shelter that takes animals from other shelters. They will come to the shelter I work for and sometimes take 10 cats at a time which is a huge help to us. They are also always donating dog food to us. They are very generous and always willing to help out their "friends." Great people doing a great job.

    Pros

    Help out other shelters

    Cons

    None

  • 13. Looks to have a good volunteer group

    by: Thaddeus

    Dropped by this shelter on a number of occasions to drop off some dog treats. Looks like a clean, well run shelter.\r\n\r\nMet a couple of volunteers and were very impressed with them. They were women who volunteered a number of hours each week to just socialize with the dogs.\r\n\r\nThat, in and of itself, says alot.

    Pros

    Volunteers

    Cons

    Hard to find

  • 14. Mt. Pleasant is great

    by: lizsh

    An amazing shelter that is great to volunteer with. They save many animals each year, and could save even more is people were to adopt from them. They can't hold too many animals because they have so little space, but what they can do, they do wonderfully.

    Pros

    The shelter staff is very knowledgeable, and very nice.

    Cons

    The only issue with the shelter is that no one knows about it, really, because it's so small.

  • 15. Mt. Pleasant is great!

  • 16. I HAVE BEEN THERE!

    by: larrywehr

    MY WIFE AND I WENT THERE TO MEET THE STAFF AS THEY ARE ONE OF THE RESCUES THAT TAKES ANIMALS FROM OUR SHELTER. THEY HAVE SAVED 100'S OF LIVES FROM OUR SHELTER. THEY ALWAYS SEND PHOTOS AND UPDATES AND IT WAS WONDERFUL TO SEE OUR ANIMALS @ THEIR FACILITIES BEING LOVED AND CARED FOR AND ADOPTED. IT'S A CLEAN AND FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT, THEY OFFER TRAINING FOR NEW ADOPTERS AND WORK VERY HARD @ FINDING ALL ANIMALS AMAZING HOMES. THEIR CAT ROOMS ARE AMAZING AND WE WISH WE HAD ONE FOR OUR SHELTER. GREAT FACILITY AND AMAZING STAFF. WE LOVE NICOLE AND DANIELLE!

  • 17. Mount Pleasnt Animal Shelter is Wonderful

    by: Lisa12

    The staff at this shelter is wonderful, patient, pleasant & knowledgeable. My husband and I recently fostered 4 kittens and brought them to Mount Pleasant to be adopted. The enire staff was wonderful and all of our babies found great homes. Hats off to Mount Pleasant!

    Pros

    Cons

    Nothing

  • 18. Great location for rescue dogs

    by: BitBucketBob

    The intake coordinator at Mt Pleasant operates a tight ship. The dogs who are taken here from our shelter must be good with people, friendly, outgoing, and have no issues with food or toys. They will be adopted quickly if these things hold true, and make room for more to come their way. I love these folks!

    Pros

    Dogs from the South are not euthanized

    Cons

    None

  • 19. Fantastic facility

    by: DonnaML

    I spent a year volunteering at this shelter. They did an excellent job in all aspects, but I loved their dog training program. Adoptable dogs took part in training. Great for keeping them socialized and out of their runs! Benefitted the families adopting these dogs.

    Pros

    Modern, well kept shelter with great staff

    Cons

    can't think of any

  • 20. Homes for dogs

    by: BShack

    Mt Pleasant has been a great destination shelter for our overpopulated impound facility. In addition to asking for dogs from us, they also inquire about dogs from the area surrounding us, so we are able to truly be a regional rescue source. Many of our babies have been saved, thanks to these people.

    Pros

    Rescue destination for southern dogs

    Cons

    None
