UPDATE: At this time, the Mississippi Animal Rescue League building is NOT open to the public. We are not allowing browsing. Please do not drop off an animal without an appointment. Our procedures are posted below. We are doing all we can to keep our staff healthy because the animals at our shelter and the community depend on us.
Our new hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10-12 and 1-4.

🐾Urgent Needs🐾
We are still in urgent need of donations. We have seen a significant drop in the donations that help us care for the animals at our shelter. We have also had a drop in adoptions. Please consider making a gift today. We cannot help these animals without you.

🐾Adoption Procedures🐾
We will process adoptions by appointment only. If you are interested in adopting a pet that you have seen on our Petfinder page or Facebook, you must submit an application through email kennym@msarl.org or fax 601-969-1887. Adoption applications are available on our website http://www.msarl.org/pdf/Pet_App_Sheet_.pdf
When you email or fax your adoption application, please let us know which pet you are interested in adopting. Once the adoption application is pre-approved, we will contact you to conduct a phone interview. Upon approval, we will schedule an appointment, assigning a time slot between the hours of 1pm-4pm Tuesday – Saturday for you to come visit with the pet outside of our facility. If you are unable to make your appointment, please be sure to let us know.
We are processing applications as fast as we can so please be patient with us.

🐾Intake Procedures🐾
We will process intakes by appointment. These appointments will be between 10-12 Tuesday through Saturday. You must call 601-969-1631 to make an appointment. We will have little to no person to person contact during the intakes. Once you arrive for your appointment, please call from the parking lot to notify our staff. Crates will be kept outside with paperwork that you will need to fill out once dropping off.
If you have an emergency intake, please call the shelter 601-969-1631.
In this time of uncertainty, we want to thank everyone for their support.
