The Wolf Trap Animal Rescue is an established not-for-profit 501(c)(3) business that currently operates by remote location to facilitate operations for transport, foster, and adoption events to aid in the rescue of puppies and kittens whom are at risk of euthanasia by shelters in Mississippi and other states of the South.  Since May 2015, Wolf Trap Animal Rescue has successfully adopted over 947 dogs & puppies, and 59 cats & kittens, with a total of over 1,000 animals rescued from euthanasia.  The rescue has an amazing network of volunteers and fosters that are dedicated to help save more lives through this rescue program. Wolf Trap Animal Rescue’s primary mission is to support a life-saving foster, transport, and adoption program which was developed in order to rescue young animals in danger of being euthanized in Mississippi from overpopulation.  The transports help relieve the shelters from overcrowding, thus allowing additional time and resources to be spent on the older, less adoptable residents of the shelter that would otherwise be euthanized.   Rescued animals are transported by volunteers of Wolf Trap Animal Rescue, where pets reside in foster homes until they find their forever home through on-site adoption events located at designated PetSmart Charities® and Unleashed by PETCO locations. The secondary mission of the Wolf Trap Animal Rescue is to provide exceptional health and preventative care services for clients of the Wolf Trap Animal Rescue and their pets. Currently, the Wolf Trap Animal Rescue provides this service by offering at-home visits and wellness exams for recently adopted pets by our Staff Veterinarian, Dr. Amber Burton. In addition, the Wolf Trap Animal Rescue focuses on providing exceptional customer and quality service in order to build and retain a loyal clientele. In order to facilitate both missions of the rescue, a primary location is needed to offer these services to the highest standard of care.   Once funding and build-out can be obtained, the location would primarily serve as a Veterinary Hospital and Surgery Clinic, one that can provide low-cost surgical and health services to the public, as well as provide much needed surgical services to the rescue animals in conjunction with animal rescue operations.  Please consider donating to help with funding of the location!
