How to get to M'Shoogy's

Contact us

 

With a strict no-kill policy, several hundred dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes call M'Shoogy's home. It costs approximately $50.00 per month per animal, excluding  medicine, and approximately $500.00 per day to open the door.  In over 19 years, we have saved more than 15,000 animals from certain death.

Gary and Lisa Silverglat started M'Shoogy's and have given and lived a 24 hour commitment to the animals. They have had four days away from the Sanctuary in 19 years. They have never taken a salary for themselves, only given everything they have with no thought of monetary compensation.  There are also other individuals, volunteers, and employees who help provide care and love for the animals.
Several acres in the back are also dedicated to wildlife rehabilitation. Many animals are given medical attention and food until they are old enough and/or well enough to be reintroduced into the wild. Summer and spring brings around a large amount of raccoons and possums. Fox, owls, deer, squirrels and ducks have all called M'Shoogy's home for a little while.
M'Shoogy's also provides educational tours and talks for groups to teach the importance of treating animals with dignity and respect. Permit laws and legislation against animal abuse have also been passed with M'Shoogy's help.
We are open to the public for adoptions Saturday 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and other times by appointment. Check available animals on the Adopt Us-Dogs or the Adopt Us-Cats page. Tours and groups are by appointment only.
