One of our ongoing and most important needs at MCAS is foster families. To support the foster program, we always need dry kitten food, clumping litter, litter pans, litter scoops, scratching posts, toys, and kitten bedding.

We will happily accept donations at our shelter, our Neuter Commuter, or any outreach adoption event.

View our donation wish list here or find our wish list on Amazon...just search for Marion County Animal Services!


Our managed admissions policy remains in effect as we continue to take action to achieve our goal of reducing euthanasia.


Even before the implementation of this policy, our center has operated at near-capacity numbers. Our staff have recently been trained to identify and match families with waiting pets. We'd love to introduce you to your family's hand-picked pets today!

We are still seeing high numbers of requests to surrender pets. We understand this decision is not an easy one. Our recent training also included identifying simple solutions for the most common behavioral and environmental stressors which typically lead an owner to consider surrendering their pet. 

Until further notice, we will provide contact information for local rescue groups and other community organizations and resources to help you re-home your pet. For more information, please view our pet surrender questionnaires:
