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

I have been involved with Martin’s Home rescue organization for about a year. Our family fostered a cat for Jenny earlier this year. This organization is amazing! Jenny does a great job of selecting animals from shelters and situations involving neglect/abandonment/injury, and makes sure that they can cohabitate with the other animals at the rescue. Her animals are well taken care of. She partners with a local vet and attends to the medical needs of her animals, from spay/neuter to dental to specialized care (eg. cardiology). I have helped transport some of the animals to the vet. I have also transported kittens, cats and bunnies from shelters to the rescue. I have seen cats who have been completely feral and found on freeways and in bad situations become socialized and adopted to loving families. This organization is inspiring!
