About Mississippi Animal Rescue League

The Mississippi Animal Rescue League, MARL, is a private 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals. Chartered in 1969, we are the largest full service animal welfare organization in Central Mississippi providing care and basic medical services for thousands of homeless and unwanted animals each year. We do not receive any general operating funds from any state or federal agency.

MARL is an “open admission” shelter- that means we accept every animal that comes in the door. One of our key goals is to find loving homes for all animals in our facility. As an “open admission” shelter, we take in on an average of 50-60 animals a day and many more in the spring and summer. Local “limited admission” shelters turn animals away when they are full. We work very hard to provide loving and humane treatment and good homes for each and every animal that comes through our doors. Sadly, we receive more animals than there are homes available. Being an “open admission” shelter, we face the hard reality of animal overpopulation each day.
