Donate to the Mount Vernon Animal Shelter through Pet Rescue!

You can make an online tax-deductible donation to support the animals at the Mount Vernon Animal Shelter or write a check to our program sponsor, Pet Rescue. Please indicate on the memo line that your donation is for the Mount Vernon Animal Shelter.

Funds are used to support our training program; purchase beds, harnesses and other equipment; provide toys and treats; or cover pet meds, or any other unanticipated expense not funded in the city budget. One of our greatest needs is for unanticipated medical expenses. For instance we have many older cats that need dental work, and cats and dogs of all ages have unexpected medical needs just like we humans do.

Please indicate a preference – if any – for your dollars to be used towards “cat care” or “dog care”. All donations are greatly appreciated!
