EASEL Animal Rescue League is a NO-KILL shelter. They stand behind their mission of reducing the number of unwanted animals and work very hard to ensure every animal has a home - no matter how old, sick, or challenging. Their results are extraordinary because of their outstanding programs and volunteers. Their dogs attend weekly training classes. 100% animals are neutered/spayed. They take animals to be adopted into the community every weekend throughout the year. They are at the forefront of educating the public about adoptions and savings hundreds of animals every year giving them a chance to have a great life in a great home.

I recently adopted our kitten, Annie, from EASEL. The adoption process was simple and easy. Annie couldn't have been more of a perfect match for our home. Thank you for all of your work and thank you to all of the foster homes for providing such wonderful care until forever homes can be found.

My son and I adopted out kittens, Daisy and Blue, from Easel 3 years ago. I really wanted an all gray kitty and 2 weeks later they had one for me! I was in the process of moving and they graciously held on to him for me until the move was complete. The application process was easy, the kittens were healthy, clean and happy - The whole experience was just wonderful!

I am so lucky that I attended an EASEL event 4 years ago and responded to a request for foster homes. I'm on my 5th "kitten season" and I have fostered over 100 cats/kittens for them. They are professional, organized and very good to their volunteers. I travel 45 minutes to the shelter because I really love the way they work. I'm happy to be able to help them with their mission....

EASEL Animal Rescue League is made up of a group of fantastic volunteers who care and strive for the best interest of the mental and physical well being of all animals who come through their shelter and foster network. They also are incredibly helpful to the community from low cost spay/neuter programs, TNR and food donations to people without little to no income. They care about the animals and people in the Mercer County community.

We adopted four kittens from EASEL within a three month span last year. They are fantastic to work with. The initial application process was fast and easy. The kittens are now cats and bring so much joy to our lives. I recommend EASEL to anyone thinking of adopting.

I have adopted all three of my cats from EASEL and the staff have been just lovely to work with. I adopted Oliver back in 2007, while they were based out of their old location, and to be honest I was very nervous about going into an animal shelter. I was expecting it to just break my heart, but the love and warmth from all of the volunteers was overwhelming. When I went back to adopt another cat, Sophie in 2014, they were well settled into their current location and again I was pleasantly surprised with accommodations, staff, and volunteers. A little over a year after that, I saw a posting on their Facebook page regarding a litter of kittens that were going to be up for adoption in the next few weeks and I swore I wouldn' get another cat. But the routine posts on the status of the kittens drew me in to just drop off a donation of food and other supplies. It took about 5 minutes with the "Scandal" litter to know that I was going to have a 3 cat household. I picked up Livie the next day after only 1 day in the shelter. All of the cats where well adjusted and used to human contact and made an easy transition. The staff at EASEL does amazing work with TNR as well as adoptions and I'm looking to volunteer with them in the next several months.
