Morningstar Animal Rescue & Referral, Inc. (MARR) is a 501 (c) (3) non profit dog rescue group based in Ridgeland, SC that is foremost dedicated to finding wonderful forever homes for the unwanted, abused & needy animals in our area and even beyond if we can. We also support and assist our local kill and no kill shelters as well as local rescuers. MARR strongly promotes spaying and neutering as an effective means to help control the animal overpopulation. We gladly accept donations of money, food, pet supplies such as beds, ex-pens & crates, and
gift certificates to pet stores such as Petco or Petsmart.
We use Patented Kuranda Dog Beds because they are durable, chew proof and easy to clean. If you would like to donate a bed to us, click here.
We also accept money donations through PayPal. Click here to find out more.
Adopting a friend
All of our rescues will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, wormed, health checked, and microchipped prior to being placed in a new home. All potential homes are carefully screened and we require completion of an adoption application, reference check and homecheck. Please contact us for a copy, and once complete, email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Some of the listings you will find are Courtesy Listings (noted as such) of other animals in need in our area. As these animals are not in our rescue program we will provide you with the contact information of the person or group in charge of helping that particular animal.
Come Visit Us!
Since we are not a shelter facility but a group of foster homes, visiting hours are by appointment only. We are based in Ridgeland, SC which is 20 miles north of Savannah, GA on Interstate 95. Some of our animals are being fostered in nearby area's so appointments are necessary. Please contact us by email first if you have internet access as this is the fastest way for us to respond.
