|MJ's Animal Sanctuary was started to support unwanted, neglected, abused, and homeless animals. In this bad economy, "beloved" pets are facing a terrible fate. Owner surrendered pets, abandoned pets, and abuse cases are higher than ever. People who are evicted and must move are unable or unwilling to take their pets or bother to find them loving homes, so they dump them knowing they will be put to sleep. Nearly every animal brought to these facilities has received little or no vet care, and has not been spayed/neutered, adding to the overpopulation problem.
MJ's Animal Sanctuary, Inc. has begun to assist tireless volunteers at a high kill animal control facility in North Carolina. At this shelter, all the animals that are still there are euthanized every Friday morning. Every Thursday we are urgently pulling adoptable dogs out of there and working to arrange transport to Maryland where they can be vetted and re-homed. Only dogs that pass strict temperament testing are pulled and adopted out.
Dogs arriving at the sanctuary will have had all shots, be de-wormed, be vetted, and will be spayed/neutered prior to being adopted. In the unusual event that a dog is unable to be altered, adoptions can still take place pending agreement of date by which alteration must occur. We require an adoption agreement to be completed including the veterinarian that will provide the dog's medical care, 2 personal references, and when possible, a home check will be done to ensure the dog's safety.
Adoption fees consist ONLY of the costs incurred by the facility to rescue a particular dog. When we recoup the money put into one dog, we can turn around and save another dog's life. For more information on how to help, please email MJsAnimalSanctuary@gmail.com or call Beata Kinsey, Rescue & Adoptions Coordinator (301) 219-2159.
