The Animal Mission is a 501(c)3 charitable organization in South Carolina that promotes pet adoptions, enhances conditions and outcomes for shelter animals, educates people on pet and humane issues and promotes spay/neuters throughout the Midlands. The Animal Mission does not operate a shelter— instead it raises funds and distributes those funds to worthy projects, communities and organizations. The organization is run solely by volunteers and has no paid staff.
