Special Needs....or just Special
Posted Tuesday, December 3, at 4:37 PM
Sometimes an animal comes into the Shelter and, due to circumstances, they have a hard time finding a home. That was the case with Emily, the cat. Emily, or Ems,as she is sometimes called, came into the Shelter as a stray way back in February. A very friendly, chubby, beautiful cat, she eventually went to Petsmart to stay for a while to be adopted, but then came down with the dreaded upper respiratory junk that spreads so quickly among cats in confined settings such as shelters. ...
All Dressed Up and Nowhere To Go
We'd like for you to meet Navi. He just spent the last two months at the Boonville Correctional Center. No, he wasn't in trouble, he was there to learn housetraining, basic obedience and all sorts of other great things in their Puppies for Parole program. ...
Help! Get us out of here!!!!
The Marshall Animal Shelter currently has a delightful, varied and HUGE assortment of cats and kittens available for adoption.

It's cold, don't you need a nice lapwarmer for the winter???...
The Marshall Animal Shelter is just full of cats and kittens looking for good homes. Contact the Shelter today to see who might round out your family! If you already have plenty of cats, give them the gift of a spay or neuter. They will be happier and so will you!...
Welcome to the Shelter Family!
There have been recent changes in the Shelter family. Danita Phillips of Marshall has been promoted to Manager for the facility. She and her family have been involved with the Shelter for several years and she is familiar with its operation and needs. She was hired as an Animal Shelter Assistant in June, and has now promoted to Manager. Danita has many talents and abilities to offer, and we're anxious to see what new improvements she will bring...
Unwanted, Unloved, Thrown Out
Aren't these pups adorable? Apparently someone didn't think so, because they were dumped a while back in Marshall, abandoned, left to fend for themselves. Fortunately someone saw them and reported it to the City so that they could be brought into the Shelter where we could care for them and find them good homes...
Last Trip to the Lake.....

Puppies for Parole provides this training for dogs at no extra cost to the participating animal shelter or to adopting families!

An Email Message From a Shelter Graduate
Dear loving care takers and friends, Well, here I am, at last I finally have some time to email my lovely ladies and friends at the shelter, (my new mom is letting me use her Ipad). I miss each and everyone of you, I hope everyone is doing well. My forever home is really great, my new mom is such a kind and caring person (like you ladies at the shelter), she sure has a lot of rules, I think "No" must be her favorite word, I hear it a lot, I also hear good Gabby, thank you Gabby, and good girl a lot when I do what I'm supposed to.. ...
98 Degrees Today......
Ahhh, Life in the Country......
We recently received this photo of a pup that was adopted from our Shelter several months ago, along with her smaller puppy "brother". We love to see the happy endings, and wanted to share this one with you.
The Marshall Animal Shelter will be closed on Monday, September 2, in observance of Labor Day. We will reopen with our regular hours on Tuesday. Enjoy your holiday!
This is Rica, a dog who was served in our Puppies for Parole program with the Boonville Correctional Center. Rica is now with her new family, and is ever-so-much at home, wouldn't you say? Puppies for Parole has been a real blessing for our Shelter. We have had 34 dogs participate in the program since February of this year.

A Sad Goodbye
The Marshall Animal Shelter gang is sad because we are losing a faithful member of our team. Tony H. has been an Animal Shelter Assistant since last fall. He has been such a wonderful addition to our team and such a hard worker! Tony is leaving us to move to the K.C. area. Good luck to you in all your future endeavors, Tony! We will miss you very much!!...
Welcome Back, MVC Students!
Bet you didn't know that the Marshall Animal Shelter has a number of Missouri Valley College students who help us out through the college's work-study program. We're looking forward to our students' arrival, some who are returning for a second year with us and some who will be brand new...
Come on, Marshall, are you telling me that nobody knew that this was a groundhog? Well, to be honest, I had never seen one in person before this pic was taken! Just goes to show that you never know WHAT will come into the Shelter!!
