About Our Rescue Group:

Mitchell Animal Rescue does not have a shelter. We are a small group of people who are advocates for the city strays that are taken to the city shelter. We advertise them in local newspapers, online classifieds, adopt when their time is up in the shelter, and foster them until we find new homes for them. We spay or neuter them asap or require the new owners to get it done within a reasonable amount of time and we require proof that it has been done. This is necessary as we are an animal rescue and are working hard to reduce the number of unwanted, abandoned, and abused animals.
We have also, in certain circumstances, taken surrendered animals when their owners can't keep their pets. We do try to convince pet owners who can't keep their pets to try to find new owners, but when they can't we will help as much as we can.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fee from the city shelter is $50 plus tax to release a dog. This is the cost of mandatory shots for rabies, parvo, distemper, and corona.
Adoption fee may be higher if Mitchell Animal Rescue adopts the pet from the city shelter when their time is up, puts them foster care and has to spay, neuter, or provide vet care. The adoption fee very seldom covers the costs for us to care for these pets before adoption. We require spay/neuter and require proof from a vet when it has been done. An adoption form must be filled out and signed and a house visit may be required. Mitchell Animal Rescue reserves the right to retrieve any animal adopted from us due to neglect, abuse, or abandonment.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
