No-Kill Animal Adoption Program

Thank you for supporting Midwest Animal Rescue Service of Illinois (M.A.R.S.)! We are a no-kill, state-licensed, all breed rescue, working to alleviate the pet over-population issues in southern Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee. We work with humane societies and animal control facilities in rural areas to remove as many animals as possible from situations where they may face euthanasia. 

All contributions we recieve help to provide quality food, shelter, medical care and transportation to the animals in our program. 
We have saved over 8,500 dogs and cats, and 215 horses through our adoption program. The animals in our program come from rural animal control facilities in KY, TN, IL and MO, where they are forced to euthanize animals weekly due to limited space.
