About Our Shelter:

We are a registered Iowa Non-Profit Corporation which operates a rescue of stray, abandoned and neglected dogs and cats. MCAR also holds 501C3 status as a sub-entity of the Red Oak Heritage Foundation (501C3) an approved community foundation. We are an all volunteer organization

The Montgomery County Animal Rescue was established in 2001 by a group of concerned local citizens. Since 2001, we have facilitated hundreds of adoptions in our area and throughout the country. Although we are limited on space, none of our adoptable animals are euthanized. MCAR works with other local and regional rescues and shelters so that many other animals have another chance at a loving home.

All animals are altered, vaccinated and micro-chipped prior to adoption. We receive no monies from city, county, state or federal agencies. MCAR is solely supported from donations by individuals, trusts, memorials and adoption fees.

We continue to sponsor reduced-cost rabies vaccination and micro-chip clinics, and have provided financial assistance to qualified applicants to defray the cost of spaying and neutering pets.

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.
