Come to the Adoption Center to see or to help out


At the MCHS Adoption Center at the end of Summers Lane east of Fort Bragg, the core of our work takes place. Animals are received, quarantined, treated as necessary, booked into database, chipped, and then given the happiest temporary home possible -- while ours is a happy shelter, it's still not the forever home (we hope) these animals deserve.

Your support, and the generosity of friends near and far, makes it possible for us to be the best kind of shelter: a no-kill shelter.

The folks who work at our Adoption Center, and our many volunteers, make this a fun place to be, and we welcome you to come and visit. We know you will be captivated by the animals, who will also be pleased to see you. If you can make it part of your weekly regimen, join our volunteer staff who walk our dogs, socialize with our cats, and help out at our Ark Thrift Store.

If there's room in your home, and in your heart, for a pet, here's the place to rescue a fine animal.



Adoption Center Volunteers

Volunteers are critical to the work of MCHS. Our volunteers make a big difference in the lives of the animals while they are at the shelter and in finding them forever homes.
