Gizmo & Archie: Nice Cats Finish Last

archiegizmoblog Gizmo, a 5 year old, domestic cat is on the search again for a loving home. Although things did not work out with his previous family, we have no doubt that he will be a wonderful addition to any home. This laid back cat is up-to-date on all vaccinations, neutered, and currently on flea & heartworm preventative. The reason he was returned has nothing to do with his personality or behavior, it was simply a matter of not being a “good fit” for this particular family.
Archie is in the same situation. He was originally returned, because his previous owner (for many years) moved out of the country and could no longer care for him. He, too, is neutered and vaccinated, but he doesn’t do well in a household with other cats. He was adopted by a single woman, who did not know much about cats, and couldn’t handle his “meowing” in the mornings. Clearly, this person has no previous experience with a cat or else she would know that this is quite normal behavior. Placing a small bowl of food out for him in the mornings would probably have remedied the situation. Alas, she opted to give him back to us, which we encourage all our adoption parents to do if things are not working out.
As many people know, the adult cats are always the hardest ones to place for adoption. So many who are looking to own a pet seem to be drawn to the small, cute, cuddly kittens and understandably so. Over the past couple of months we have noticed these two growing more and more depressed. They are both the type of cats who WANT and NEED a loving place to call home. They are both extremely affectionate, and although we give them as much love and attention as we can, it simply does not compare to the constant warmth and kindness they could have if they were taken into someone’s family. Please share their story with your friends and family. Please contact Advanced Animal Care of Mt. Pleasant for more details on our adoption process.

**UPDATE 10/15/13- Gizmo has been adopted, but Archie is still looking for his forever home!!

Cooper has found a loving home!


Cooper is a very sweet and energetic Hound mix. He is heartworm positive, and has recently started his treatment. His heartworm treatment will be done at no cost to the new owner. He is current on all vaccinations, neutered, and dewormed. Cooper was found by a good samaritan who saw him living in not the best of conditions. He absolutely loves people and other animals. He needs someone who is patient and understanding. He is learning quickly how to become an inside dog. Cooper will be a wonderful addition to any family. Please call Advanced Animal Care of Mount Pleasant for adoption details. 843-884-9838

From Homeless to Hopeful

This 6 week old kitten was found in the middle of the road, barely alive. She was rushed to AAC where our doctors and staff immediately began working on her. After x-rays and further diagnositics, it was discovered that she is suffering from a fractured femur, severe dehydration, anemia, flea and intestinal parasite infestation. Her injuries seem to be consistent with the possibility of being thrown out of a car, but there is no way to be sure. What we DO know is that thanks to a good samaritan she is well on the road to recovery! She is beginning to improve after IV fluids, pain medication, and deworming. She is very interested in food and even walking! Dr. Steele expects her to make a full recovery, and then she will be available for adoption. Stay tuned for more updates!
*UPDATE- This sweet kitten, now named Donut, is doing exceptionally well! She is almost completely recovered from her injury, and enjoying a wonderful life with a family of her own. We cannot thank everyone enough for their love and support for this injured kitten. The compassion shown for this injured animal was overwhelming.


Kittens, Kitten everywhere!


 It’s that time again!  Kittens, kittens everywhere!  We have two litters with us at the moment. Three little kittens were found in a dumpster on Clements Ferry Road. Luckily, a good samaritan saw them and brought them to us.

     The other litter was found at the Sunshine House in Park West along with their mother.  The mom has developed a great relationship with the staff there, so after she has weened her kittens, spayed, and vaccinated she will go back to live at the Sunshine House.   All of the kittens are too young to be adopted just yet. Their ages range from 2-3 weeks old. We will be sure to keep everyone posted about how they’re doing and when they will be available for adoption!! Please help us share their stories. Call 843-884-9838 for adoption details.

Bowie & Ziggy have found their way into the heart of a wonderful family!

Bowie and his brother Ziggy were found in a ditch when they were only a few weeks old.  Luckily, a good samaritan saw them and brought them into the Advanced Animal Care. 

The doctors and staff treated them for ringworm, parasites, and malnutrition.  They are now 2 beautiful healthy little boys!!  They have already been neutered and are current on all vaccinations.  Come by and visit them today!!!

*UPDATE – Bowie and Ziggy have been adopted together! We could not be any happier for them!

Gina has found her home at last!

My name is Gina and I am looking for a family to call my own. My mother went missing when I was very small and I was found all alone with my brothers. I am playful and sweet-natured.

I am shy, but I don’t mind being cuddled and rubbed once I get to know you. I especially like toys and treats! I am used to having other kitties around and wouldn’t mind meeting some new friends.

I am already spayed and up to date on all of my shots. Please come to meet me if you are interested in adding a loveable little kitty like me to your home.

*UPDATE – We are so pleased to announce that Gina has found a wonderful home to call her own. Thank you to everyone who helped us share her story! – AACMP

A Home for Archie

ARCHIEFB2Over the past couple of months we have noticed Archie growing more and more depressed here at the hospital. He is not the type of cat who thrives in an environment like this, because he is the type of cat who wants to belong to someone. He wants a warm lap to call his own, and a house full of love and kindness. Although we are providing as much love and attention as possible, it is clear that he is counting his days until that special someone comes in and decides he is the addition to their family they’ve been looking for. Please call Advanced Animal Care of Mt. Pleasant if you or anyone you know is interested in adopting this sweet boy. 843.884.9838
