Mitchell County Animal Rescue is a non-profit volunteer organization devoted to the rescue and care of abandoned and otherwise unwanted animals. Our primary goal is the promotion of spaying and neutering pets, reducing the population of stray animals, and the education of future generations in humane treatment of animals.

Our vets spay and neuter both puppies and kittens. Some of our available pets are already altered. You can take your pet home with you right away! Some pets may require spay/neuter upon adoption.
All pets are spayed or neutered before adoption. No exceptions.
