We have been responsibly and compassionately protecting, advocating and educating for animal welfare since 1956. MCHA is dedicated to promoting the welfare of animals, strengthening the human-animal bond, and providing access to humane education across our community.
To accomplish our mission, we:
- Implement a thorough humane education platform that reaches youth and adults across the community;
- Offer direct low-cost veterinary services to help animals and animal owners;
- Offer veterinary assistance funding for both the prevention of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens and in extreme injury circumstances;
- Coordinate a team of dog-handler volunteer therapy teams into the community to share the benefits of the human-animal bond;
- Coordinate resources, and trap-neuter-return assistance for caretakers of feral or outdoor cats
- Offer a free pet food and supply pantry for low-income Monroe County residents
MCHA is an independent 501c(3) nonprofit organization that receives no government funding or regular funding from national organizations.
