Who We Are

MARC is not a shelter. We can save only the number of animals for which we have foster homes. We are a resource to help Marion County residents find safe places for stays, dumped, and unwanted animals. Residents who call MARC for help will be encouraged to foster the animals while we work hard to hopefully find a place to which the animals can relocate. We take in homeless dogs off the street and out of high kill shelters and treat them like family members until we find them a forever home. We get to know each dog and try to make the perfect match with the right family.

Adopting a friend

If you are interested in one of our dogs, you can contact us via email or call us. We will email you an application. If you prefer to talk on the phone I will happily do a phone interview. We have high standards for our homes, but really we just want to find homes where the dogs will be a true family member. Every dog is spayed or neutered and fully vetted. There in a minimum adoption fee and also a transport cost if you need the animal transported to you. There are some good transport programs available if you live out of state. The adoption fees are necessary to pay for the vet care of all the dogs and will also help us continue to rescue more wonderful dogs for years to come. Dog rescue is very expensive. Many of our dogs come in sick and need quite a bit of vet care to get them healthy enough to go to their forever homes. Your adoption fee will also help us feed and care for the dogs that will be here longer due to their age or breed. If you would like to donate to our dog rescue please send your donations via paypal to
