The South Carolina Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded in Charleston and received a state charter in 1880. Its immediate concerns were to combat the rampant cruelty to animals. This included the neglect of work-animals, the inhumane shipping of cattle, and the epidemic of stray dogs.

In 1940, the Society adopted the name of its early Board President, John Ancrum, honoring a contribution made from his estate.

During the mid-1900's, the organization worked to outlaw cruel animal "sports". One such example was gander pulling which involved a horseback rider tearing the head from a live goose while racing full speed. The society also campaigned successfully to improve the abominable conditions of the city-operated dog pound.

A Safe Haven

The society continued to work toward a more humane environment to house abandoned animals and permanent homes. In 1948, private funds were raised to open the first animal shelter on Meeting Street. As the pet population grew, other sites followed. Volunteers managed the operation of these facilities and local veterinarians donated their services.

The John Ancrum SPCA assumed residency at its current location on Leeds Avenue in 1981. This first-class facility reflects a long and cooperative partnership between the agency and Charleston County Council. Upon completion of the shelter, the county terminated its own animal pound and contracted with the SPCA to provide care for all of the animals collected by animal control officers.

The John Ancrum SPCA continues to fight animal cruelty, find safe homes for abandoned animals and reduce pet over-population. The greatest challenge facing the agency today is finding space and resources to increase pet adoptions as the number of abandoned pets increases steadily with our growing community.
