Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal-Related, Animals


Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is dedicated to improving the lives of animals locally, nationally and internationally; alleviating their suffering and elevating their status in society through the rescue and rehabilitation of animals in need and through the education of their community on responsible pet ownership and animal welfare, advocating the value of all animal life, in hopes to end the neglect and abuse of all animals and to end the devastating pet overpopulation through spay and neuter advocacy. 

Programs: Rescue, Rehabilitate and Educate: -We rescue animals in need and provide them basic and complex medical treatments, shelter, and love in a home enviornment- so we can best get to know them and understand their long term needs -We rehabilitate harder to place animals with more complex training needs. Our ability to help is based on capacity and fostering availibility, rather than restrictions on breed etc. We take each case one at a time. -We educate the public on the plight of rescue animals as well as some tricks and tips to manage their pets, especially if they may be thinking about rehoming them for something minor and fixable- we can help provide a strategy. For more serious cases, we can refer trainers/ rehabbers, and always encourage seeking an evaluation to determine the general safety of the animal.

Motley Zoo Animal Rescue is the type of organization of which I'm very honored and proud to belong. The animals are all fostered in homes rather than kennels in a brick and mortar location. Adopters, fosters, and volunteers are all screened to ensure that they have the animals best interests at heart. And MZAR is run by two of the kindest people I've ever met. I've been around a lot of non-profits and I must say that this is the best one that I've invested my time into in over 20 years.

I have been volunteering with Motley zoo for over 6 months now and have fostered many animals for them. They are an incredible organization. The Board of Directors are the most caring and generous people I have ever met. They give up so much of their own time and money to help animals in need. They work tirelessly to come up with more funds and ways to assist these animals in need. LOVE, LOVE this group and proud to be a part of it!
