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.
MMAR's mission is accomplished by providing appropriate shelter and humane care, providing medical, emotional and social rehabilitation, by providing a nurturing foster home environment, by seeking permanent, loving, responsible homes through adoption, reducing pet overpopulation through strict spay/neuter measures, and providing a diversity of humane education programs to the community. Our ultimate goal is to end the suffering and provide these animals with a second chance at life through love, compassion & adoption!
Through our research, we have discovered that many animals could have remained in their current homes instead of being surrendered to animal shelters or to the lonely, dangerous streets if only their owners had access to proper resources. Most often these are simple resources that could provide some friendly advice, temporary assistance or education. We hope to become a valuable resource for these owners who feel they have nowhere else to turn.
Not only do we specialize in rescuing the sick and injured, but we also assist in humanely reducing the number of feral cats in the community by gently trapping them, then providing shelter, sustenance, veterinary examination, inoculation, spaying/neutering and whenever possible, provide them with a forever home through adoption.
By working with our local shelters, committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, and boarding facilities, we are able to rescue and save the lives of these precious animals that would otherwise be forgotten.
None of this would be possible without the love, support and monetary contributions & donations from people like you! No amount is too small...every single dollar makes a huge difference. Please help us!! Together, we can save them all! One dollar at a time...one animal at a time!

Prior to an adoption, all of our animals will have received a thorough Veterinary exam, received treatment needed for any illnesses or injuries they may have incurred prior to their Rescue, they have been spayed or neutered, and they have been vaccinated and have been given Microchip IDs!
Our Adoption Fees range depending on the animal. Careful consideration is taken when determining this fee. We consider the animals’ previous medical expenses, length of time in our care, adopt-ability factors, future needs, etc. Each animals adoption’ fee will be listed within his/her profile information.
We wish that we could simply give our animals to their new adoptive family at zero cost. However, Mutts & Mayhem is a non profit organization who relies solely on individual donations and adoption fees to care for all of our animals on a day to day basis. The cost associated with treating and caring for each animal far outweighs the adoption fee that you pay for that animal through your adoption. Please keep all of this in mind if it seems to you that the adoption fee listed may be too high for that animal.
To be considered for adoption you need to:
•Be at least 18 years old.
•Have knowledge and consent of all adults living in your household
•Have a valid government-issued photo ID
•Have landlords consent to bring an animal onto the property (if applicable)
•Possess zero criminal convictions for Animal Cruelty, Animal Abuse, Family/Domestic Violence or Felony Violent Crimes.
•Understand that Mutts & Mayhem reserves the right to refuse the adoption of any animal to any person.
Through the adoption process, we will ask you to complete an adoption application and we will process it as promptly as possible. For dog adoptions, we do require a home visit prior to the final approval of an adoption application. After your adoption application has been approved, we will complete an adoption agreement with you that is signed by all parties.
After your adoption, if "anything" happens where you can no longer keep or care for the pet that you adopted from us, we will happily accept that animal back into our Rescue, no questions asked.
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.
