The outside kennels have been closed temporarily while the fencing is being repaired and there literally is not a spot left in the kennel. Many of the dogs have been moved into homes on a very temporary basis (emergency situation) and need to be moved elsewhere ASAP. It would be wonderful if they didn't have to come back to the lonely life at a shelter!
Please consider fostering ANY of the dogs listed on our website until we can find a permanent home for them. Even if they are in foster homes, it may be just temporary homes (so please ask if you are interested in any of them).
Also, we are in urgent need of foster homes for our heartworm positive dogs that have a place to go up North. Again, this entails keeping the dog quiet (preferrably in a crate or confined area) and leash walks only (no running and playing allowed) for 4-6 weeks. Many have homes waiting for them, but they cannot go until their treatment is completed.
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM EVERYONE AT THE MARION ANIMAL SHELTER!
