MPFL provides limited adoption options for elderly, disabled, homeless, and those who have fallen on hard times and can no longer care for their pet or for pet owners who have passed away. We DO share courtesy posts to help spread the word about animals in need of new forever homes. We also assist with ani-mal transport to get pets to their new forever home.
MPFL does NOT have a caretaker at this time because we do NOT take in animals on a regular basis.
MPFL is run entirely by volunteers. There are NO paid employees.
MPFL does NOT have a contract with the city and depends solely on donations, grants, and fundraisers for income.
MPFL does NOT perform euthanasia.

MPFL works with a local veterinary clinic to provide spay/neuter for dogs. This also requires an appointment and an MPFL voucher.
