More Details about what the MCE Animal Foundation is and does

MCE Animal Foundation (MAF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our mission is "To inspire, educate, motivate the human spirit to save, nurture and love the canine spirit and to bring the two together for the joy of both."

The primary focus of MCE Animal Foundation is the rescue, recovery and placement of at-risk dogs in our community. We do not discriminate against age, breed, or medical condition. We provide refuge and a second chance for dogs desperately needing at new start.

The dogs that come into our care have amazing stories of strength, love, triumph and survival to tell. Most have suffered from neglect, abuse, hoarding, puppy mills or have endured long term confinement or isolation. Some have given their life to science and laboratory research.  In addition, we are a support for rescues and shelters, taking in dogs that have been waiting for extended periods to find a home, dogs that have been returned multiple times, and dogs that are struggling in the shelter environment due to fear and lack of socialization.

  • We are dedicated to helping dogs recover from trauma such as abuse, neglect, long term confinement, and other special cases. Our program provides rescue, recovery, socialization, training, and placement for dogs that shelters and rescue organizations cannot place.
  • Our program is dedicated to the dog that sits in a shelter for a year or longer waiting patiently for someone to come along and say "that's the one I want" only to meet the dog and then say "no thanks".
  • We are dedicated to the dog that is unlucky enough to be a product of a puppy mill and live years in a cage, unaware of what it feels like to run free.
  • We are dedicated to the dog whose owner isolated her in a yard for years and forgot to socialize her, stimulate her, and offer guidance.
  • We are dedicated to the dog that is ill due to environment or age and doesn't have a family or home to call their own.
  • We are dedicated to the dog that, because someone forgot to take the time to work with them, ended up in a shelter, adopted then returned then adopted then returned.

Our Facility

We are in the process of completing a new doggie studio with windows for natural lighting, soft bedding, and stimulation toys or stuffies to play with. Construction for condos comes from our wonderful donors and sponsors. We are currently accepting sponsorships for condos. If you or your business are interested in sponsoring additional sleeping areas please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit our donate page for more information.

We are currently hard at work growing many of our different programs and services and designing new spaces to accommodate that growth - a classroom and a new building for training.

Our Training Division launched in 2016 and enabled us to provide a much needed service for shelters, rescue groups, and for the community. These programs are designed to reduce return rates and increase save rates within the shelter system, including Animal Control agencies. In short, education saves lives.
