URGENT:  The pound animals need your help.  Before Mitchell Animal Rescue began rescuing all adoptable animals from the pound, any and all animals that were not claimed by their owner or adopted (within 5 days) was euthanized.  Mitchell Animal Rescue is in dire need of dedicated animal lovers to help continue this mission.  If Mitchell Animal Rescue ceases to exist, which is very close to becoming a reality, the euthanizations will begin again unless another rescue or more people want to learn the rescue process.  It begins by volunteers taking pictures and getting information on the animals in the pound and forwarding it on to a volunteer who advertises in hopes of finding the owner, or find fosters or other rescues to take them in.  This can be a difficult process, but we are making headway.  If you'd like to be an advocate for innocent animals that would die without rescue, please let us know.  This is an urgent matter!  Thank you!

*Please note: We are not employed by the city of Mitchell, Lakeview Vet Clinic, nor do we  manage the city pound. However, we do assist in finding owners of the animals that come into the pound.  We have volunteers that check the pound at least 3 times a week. When the animals have to leave the pound, we pull them and place them in foster homes or transfer to other rescues.

 A big thank you to all of you who have adopted animals from the local pound and/or Mitchell Animal Rescue. We couldn't do what we do without you!
