Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at the Marshall Public Library at 7 p.m. Anyone that is interested is welcome to attend.
We were founded on June 5, 1997 by Myra Copeland in memory of her sister Mahala Copeland Cox, a local artist and animal lover. Who, after a visit to the local animal shelter, Myra realized the overwhelming need for a concerned group of citizens to combat the number of neglected and homeless animals in Marshall. SAL is completely funded by donations and money raising functions. All work is accomplished by volunteers. We do not have any paid staff members.
We do need your help though. Please spay/neuter your pet! This is the only way the population of pets will become manageable and every pet will get the loving home it deserves.
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.
