 Attention Adopters 
We are not a shelter or kennel; all our adoptable pets are living in foster homes. As such we have no visiting hours and potential adopters must be prescreened before being allowed to meet the foster family for their safety. Please email us at MJsAnimalSanctuary@gmail.com for an application. Also, we often hold adoption events (1-2 per month) at the Petco store in Bowie located at 15461 Excelsior Dr., Bowie, MD.? We do not have a regular schedule for adoption events because we never know too far in advance what dogs/how many etc. will be available, but feel free to email for the most current adoption event information. Please understand that this rescue is run entirely by volunteers who have busy lives and do this in their spare time. Thank you!

MJ's Animal Sanctuary is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity that was founded for the purpose of rescuing and finding permanent, forever homes for unwanted, neglected, abused, and homeless animals.

In this depressed economy, "beloved" pets are facing a terrible fate. Owner surrendered pets, neglect, pet abandonment, and abuse cases are higher than ever. People evicted from their homes are unable or unwilling to take their pets, so they dump them at a shelter where they have little chance of getting out, or they simply abandon them. MJ's Animal Sanctuary, Inc. assists tireless volunteers at high kill rural animal control facilities where adoptions are severely limited. Each week we rescue pets from these facilities who, without our help, would face almost certain euthanasia. We work hard to arrange transport of these pets to Maryland where they can begin looking for a loving home! All pets arriving in our program are extensively temperament tested, receive proper veterinary care including shots, de-worming, and spay/neuter prior to being adopted. For more information, please email MJsAnimalSanctuary@gmail.com.
We have a variety of animals waiting for forever homes, so be sure to click on the featured pet above to visit that pet!

We have been asked by the host of this site to remove our video and information about a southern rural shelter that we have worked endlessly for nearly 2 years with to change, in order to keep the negativity out. But something that will go unrecognized if we do not talk about it is that in a shelter where nearly 15,000 animals were killed by heartstick every year, things HAVE changed in the last 2 years. Through the efforts of rescue organizations and tireless volunteers, along with pressure on the local county governments, change has been brought about, and the shelter we have worked so hard at helping is now striving to be no kill! While we do not understand the reasons behind the decision to have our video, progress, and information about these shelters removed, we are complying, but we ask that you continue to support what we do, and what so many others are doing, in raising awareness and bringing about actual change for the benefit of animals in high kill shelters. Please consider a donation to help us continue this challenging work! Thank you.
