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 an amazing organization made up of a network of volunteers who's goal is to find homes for all kinds of animals. We volunteered to become a foster family for MZAR & we were given "Marta", a former street dog from Taiwan as our first foster. We had Marta in our home for about a month to help her transition from a life on the street to a life in a home & it was at that time that we realized that MZ made a perfect match for us. She got along wonderfully w/our other rescued dog & two cats & with us! There are lots of rescue orgs who won't let you adopt the animal you're fostering for fear that they'll lose you as a foster family, but not MZ. They were more than happy to draw up the adoption papers for us to sign so that Marta could become a permanent member of our family! And for that, we are forever grateful! The team works tirelessly to rescue animals, transport them to the vets, attend adoption events, organize fund-raising events, whatever it takes to get animals out into the public eye with the hopes that they'll find they're "forever home". I will gladly support this organization in any way possible in the future. Fostering isn't out of the question, we just need a bigger house!!
