Adoption Queries Only: MtVernonAnimalShelter@gmail.com Cat adoption hours: 11-3 daily Dog adoption hours: 11-2 daily The Mt. Vernon Animal Shelter, founded in 1974 is a municipal shelter that serves as a safe haven for thousands of domestic animals who are lost, abandoned, neglected, unwanted or in distress. We are a small shelter, but our caring staff and volunteers work tirelessly to improve the lives of resident animals and those within the city of Mt. Vernon. Foster, Volunteer, Adopt We actively promote both adoptions and fostering, and welcome volunteers. The Mt. Vernon Animal Shelter is always looking for loving foster homes to provide temporary homes for homeless dogs and cats. As a foster care provider, you will treat your foster pets as if they were your own, providing love and training to help them prepare for lives in their adoptive homes. If you think fostering might be for you, please fill out our foster home application and one of our volunteers will contact you to answer any questions you might have. We are particularly anxious to see our feral, senior and special needs pets placed in temporary care. There are no minimum or maximum time requirements. Even a week or a month can make a huge difference to an animal that currently only has a cage for a home. Donate Please help us care for a dog or cat in need. Your contribution, large or small, made through the Shelter Pet Alliance website, will help to underwrite veterinarian care for a sick or injured animal in our care, or a pet who brings affection and comfort to a lonely elderly person on a very small income. And, it could help feed, medicate, and neuter a dog or cat in our adoption center. If you'd rather send a gift to our lovely animals please consider donating a Kurunda bed or check out our Amazon Wishlist and make a contribution! We never have enough of the items listed below. Any item that you could donate would be appreciated: Canned Dog Food Canned Cat Food Bleach Laundry Detergent/Powder Pine Sol or Fabuloso Cat Treats Dog Treats Milk Bones Dish Soap Paper Towels Toilet Paper Garbage Bags (30 gal.) Peanut Butter
