There are many ways you can help our animals- from sharing our message or their profiles, to collecting funds for them, or even making toys! Anyone can help one of our Roadies have a better start on their way to their adoptive homes!
Feb 4, 2013- Help us build a solid foundation with our Rock Solid Campaign!
Motley Zoo Has an amazing opportunity to purchase a property that will keep MZar going indefinitely- but we need your help to make it happen!
Motley Zoo has grown by leaps and bounds since we founded in February of 2009. At nearly 4 years old, we have found we are struggling to do the best work we can, without a physical facility where we can organize, gather, train and store our donations and food, etc. The proven and preferred foster system will remain in tact- this facility is not intended to be a shelter to house animals- but rather a place to host events, a place where fosters can train their pets, where we can train people to do more behind the scenes tasks, and especially to store the large number of crates, equipment and “doodads” that help keep us going.
We’re currently seeking a temporary location to operate from, but our long term goal is to buy and build on a property that can sustain us indefinitely. We have plans to build an amazing campus-like facility on this property, that will be a truly never-been-done-before, innovative concept, eco-friendly and sustainable, and will change the idea of what an animal rescue/ shelter is- a model we believe will eventually be emulated across the country.
We need to raise $1,359,000 by April 15th- or at least a significant enough an amount to show the sellers that we are indeed “the rescue that can”! Thankfully the sellers are invested in MZar buying the property, but they can’t wait forever- and neither can we. We need your help in spreading the word far and wide to friends family, and everyone who will listen, that they can indeed be a part of a groundbreaking movement to change the world of animal welfare forever!
We believe that all pets are precious- and none should be left behind. We take great pride in our rescue, that strives to serve animals and families to the best of our ability- going above and beyond at every turn!
We rescue and rehome pets- currently, dogs and cats- primarily from local shelters, and owners who surrender their pets. We work to help stop puppy mills, or save pets from other neglectful or abusive situations, such as those confiscated from hoarders, as well. We will do whatever we can to help…even if this sometimes, can’t be directly.
We save these pets’ lives, make sure they are healthy, happy, and provide them the training and instruction they will need to become the best pet for you! We take care of the hard part, so you can make the most of enjoying your pet- but we always need people willing to help make change in the world, for these animals. You might be surprised how much the chage takes place within you too!
We don’t have a brick and mortar structure- rather we house our animals in private foster homes throughout the area. We have an extensive network of experienced fosters, whom we train and instruct so that they can translate this work to the pets! We always need more families willing to take on a pet, and love them like their own, until a home is found.
How can you help? Well, it is up to you- but there are plenty of ways to fit Motley Zoo into your life! You may be surprised too, it may change your perspective on the other things that “keep you busy”. Sometimes adding one more thing, can really help you weed out what really matters in your life…you might just find yourself, re-evaluating what you do have time for, and realizing the “someday” you thought you’d volunteer, is everyday, when you work with us to save lives!
