Become a Rescue Partner

The McKamey Animal Center welcomes the opportunity to partner with rescue organizations across the country in order to carry out the mission of the Center. We look forward to partnering with organizations that share our mission and goals.

Rescue Partner Benefits

All approved rescue partners have access to pull animals that are available for rescue. Each transferred animal will leave the Center spayed or neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, de-wormed, treated for fleas/ticks, and given heartworm preventative if applicable.

Philosophy & Guidelines

Please read through our Guidelines for Rescue Partners to familiarize yourself with what rescue partners can expect from the McKamey Center and what is expected in return. The McKamey Center adheres to the Animal Rescue Association of America Animal Rescue Code of Ethics.
