About the Mount Vernon Center for Animal Care
The Mount Vernon Center for Animal Care, (aka Mount Vernon Animal Shelter) founded in 1974 is a municipal shelter that serves as a safe haven for thousands of domestic animals who are lost, abandoned, neglected, unwanted or in distress. We are a small shelter, but our caring staff and volunteers work tirelessly to improve the lives of resident animals and those within the city of Mt. Vernon.
We actively promote both adoptions and fostering, and welcome volunteers.
To support the Mount Vernon Center for Animal Care, you can make a tax-deductible donation to Friends of Mount Vernon Shelter Animals, Inc. (“Friends”). Friends is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that raises funds and collects supplies to meet the basic needs as well as enrich the lives of the dogs and cats in the Mount Vernon Center for Animal Care. Every dollar raised goes to support a program that makes an animal more adoptable or adds a comfort that would not otherwise be possible. Friends is entirely independent of the Mount Vernon Center for Animal Care and is not responsible for its actions or inactions.
