Why is Mount Pleasant a Pet-Friendly City?
Certified in the BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program in 2021, Mount Pleasant, SC, scored especially well in the Shelters trait of our pet-friendly cities model.

Mount Pleasant’s Mayor Will Haynie on Being Pet-Friendly
“We are thrilled to be recognized by BETTER CITIES FOR PETS. Our furry friends not only enhance our quality of life here in Mount Pleasant, but also help build community in our town. The town’s strong response related to supporting pet parents in challenging times is key to reducing pet homelessness and keeping people and pets together. My family’s eight-year-old rescue, Rusty, couldn’t agree more.”
– Mayor Will Haynie
