Palmetto Paws Animal Rescue

Mt Pleasant, SC

Adoption Policy

We try to keep it as simple as possible. Each adoptable pet listed on petfinder has a bio with info on the pet as well as the specifics of the home we are looking for. We strive to send out healthy animals and make the best match for the pet and family. Many of our pets come from high-kill shelters and many have never lived inside. We expect that any adopter is willing to work on the “basics” such as housebreaking, leash and crate training as well as general commands. We recommend that any first time dog owner meet with our trainer soon after adoption to get off on the right track.
Many pups come in without mom and dad so usually we have no idea of breed or potential adult weight. We make a guess on the breed mix as we have to post a breed on this site to be able to list our pets. This is a 100% guess!

All of our animals will be spayed/neutered, have age appropriate vaccines and are microchipped.
Adopters leave with a medical summary of what we have done while in rescue and what the adopter will need to do post adoption. We go over the medical summary with the adopter at adoption. We provide a new collar and leash and help adopters shop if needed. We welcome out of state adopters but please keep in mind that you would need to come to Charleston, SC to meet and adopt our pets. We do not ship/transport our animals. Adoption fees vary by animal and are listed in each individual posting. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at! Again, keep in mind that we do our best to make an educated guess as to the breeds of our rescued pets.

If you are interested in meeting one of our animals, please submit an application which can be found on this home page. We meet privately with approved adopters.
We expect that at the meet, if all parties agree we have a good match, then the adoption takes place at that time.
