MARS' vision is to be the leader in innovative companion animal rescue.
Our mission: Dedicated to providing unsurpassed standards for quality care, client education and training of companion animals, to promote responsible pet ownership while uniting fellow rescuers in the pursuit of ending animal homelessness.
Midwest Animal Rescue & Services™ (MARS) is a dedicated and passionate group who rescues dogs and cats that are at risk and homeless through no fault of their own, as well as puppy mill rescues. Once in our care, these companion animals are vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed or neutered. Special attention is provided for those animals that need additional time and medical care before going to a new home.
MARS is committed to helping pets in need whenever possible, including all breeds and ages. MARS does not have a shelter facility for boarding. We are a foster-based rescue group that runs on the support and aid of dedicated volunteers. Our pets live in homes, as family members, receiving all of the love and care they would in an adoptive home, until they are adopted. The adopters gain greater insight into the pets’ behavior and personality versus interacting with an animal who has been living in a kennel and the pet is more prepared for a loving home life. This helps produce the best match possible for the new families, resulting in a 99% success rate.
MARS is an IRS recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
