Save to Favorites

Martin's Home, Inc

Puffin got a ride to safety
Can you save more of Puffin's friends by giving them a ride to safety?

Provide daily care and exercise to rescue kitties and bunnies housed at Petco Carmel Mountain Ranch available for Adoption. Cleaning and socializing takes about an hour per day and can be done any time the store is open. Volunteers must be reliable and able to follow instructions for cat and bunny care. Perfect for getting your fix of cat and bunny loving daily. Must not be allergic to cats. With some rescues and shelters closed, being able to care for the bunnies and kitties housed at Petco is more important during COVID-19 to help homeless animals find their forever homes.

Mission Statement

A non-profit public benefit corporation rescuing and rehoming animals in need

Description

    • Animal rescue - take in homeless cats, rabbits and horses or animals at risk of being homeless or abused- we are made aware of animals in need of rescue through other organizations contacting us by either phone or internet. Most shelters attempt to notify "rescue partners" prior to euthanizing animals. We try to take in animals that have "run out of time" at other shelters or rescues. We also take in homeless animals from private citizens if the animal fits into our program and if we have space. These people find us through internet and phone directories and any rescue lists we are registered with
    • Education to the public to reduce the numbers of homeless animals - Provide education to help people successfully keep their pets and to help them consider if they are prepared to commit to a new animal prior to taking it on- we have printed an d e-mail versions of educational materials (articles and brochures) we give to potential adopters and people wanting to relinquish their pets. We try to educate and inform potential adopters so they fully understand the commitment and responsibilities that come with a new animal. Once they have the animal, we help trouble shoot any issues they might have. For instance, we help problem solve is a cat is house soiling, clawing on furniture, not getting along with the family dog, etc
