    MarrVelous Pet Rescues & Adoptions is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation finding homes for animals in need of a family. Our rescues often have medical needs prior to being placed in homes and funding for these services comes through donations from our supporters.  
    Many of the pets we rescue need to be spayed or neutered. Add the cost of exams, vaccinations, food and supplies while being fostered and you can understand why we are so thankful for your donations!!
    Thank you for all of your support and help
    We also accept checks or money orders payable to "MarrVelous Pet Rescues & Adoptions". You can either mail your check or money order to our office, or drop it off in person. Please do not mail cash donations.

      I adopted the sweetest little Jack Russell named Clyde and I couldn’t be more thrilled with him. He is so loved by all in the neighborhood and I throw him a lovely birthday party each year. Marr Velous Pet Rescues is a great organization made up of caring volunteers.
