The Marshmallow Foundation is a “low kill” shelter. This is very important to all of us and we believe in it with all of our hearts. The animals that are brought to us as “strays” are held for five (5) business days. After that hold period is up, we have the right to have that animal euthanized. We wanted to give animals a second chance at finding new homes so we chose to have a policy where we only euthanize if there are extenuating circumstances. We do our very best to not give up on any animal brought to our doorstep! Because we are committed to caring for these animals until we can find them appropriate homes, many are with us for a very lengthy period. On average, we have over 40 cats and 15 dogs to care for while they wait to find new homes and families. We do not give them time limits. But to do this requires support from our public. In addition to finding homes for these pets, the Marshmallow Foundation also works closely with local and regional service dog training programs and police departments. We are proud to have had several shelter dogs go on to help people or places in need! The staff and volunteers of the Marshmallow Foundation work hard every single day providing for the animals that have no other place to go. They do this because it is in their heart and it feeds their soul. Please help them continue to care for these pets in need and provide a safe haven for them until they find new families and homes. Please consider making a donation to ensure that these animals have someplace to go when they need it most. Thank you!
