Puppy Wellness ExamEvery Penny Counts

MARS is a PRIVATE, No-Kill rescue service with a shelter facility in southern Illinois. Because we are a private organization, we rely SOLELY on adoption fees to fund our programs. We do not receive any government funding, grants or other state funding AT ALL. We do this so that we can operate under our own higher standard of care, which has been praised by our adopters, vets and trainers.
We work very hard to give each pet tons of attention and love while they are with us, to help them make a better lifelong companion for you!

Contributions are gratefully accepted so that we may continue to provide a safe, warm shelter, quality dog food, toys, supplies, and medical care for many more animals.
