Welcome to Mendo Shelter Pets Rescue (MSPR), an animal rescue by the people for the people! We are a foster-based 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit animal organization focusing on helping pets within Mendocino County, California and surrounding areas. Our journey began volunteering at our local animal shelters, which has led us to expanding our efforts so that we can help even more animals. We are made up of a dedicated and compassionate group of animal lovers, volunteers and community members of Mendocino County hoping to continue to make a difference in our animal loving community. For years, we have been marketing adoptable pets, managing “Friends of Ukiah Animal Shelter” Facebook, assisting in reuniting lost pets with their owners, promoting and educating about spaying/neutering and providing adoption support and help whenever we can. Now, with a non-profit we can do even more to help this great community of ours and we are so excited about our new journey. Every day we are contacted about homeless pets that need us; every day we strive to do more. Every day our community comes together to make a difference. So, more is what we shall do… Together with you, our community, our local animal shelters and rescues, and “Friends of Ukiah Animal Shelter”, we can combine our resources so that we can help our homeless pets thrive and ultimately do a lot of good in our wonderful community.

Since we are a foster-based rescue, we are always looking to find foster homes. If you live anywhere in Mendocino county or the immediate surrounding area, and you have extra space in your hearts and homes, please contact us at info@mendoshelterpets.com to fill out our foster application. Once approved, we will set you up with a homeless pet who desperately needs to trade in their kennel for a comfy spot at your house. We will match your home and lifestyle with the best possible match. There are lots of pets that have been patiently waiting for a loving home and with our efforts combined, we are sure to be a huge success! If you can’t foster, please consider donating to our cause at: http://paypal.me/mendopetrescue

We could not be doing what we are doing without the help from our extremely supportive and generous community! So thank you to all of you who have shared our Facebook posts, donated directly using our PayPal link, inquired about fostering and all of the kind words and positive feedback that we have received. It really does take a village and we think the village here in Mendocino County is pretty amazing! You all rock! Together, we can save a lot of lives.
