Adopt A Companion

Obedience Training FIDO Project
In cooperation with the Marion Correctional Institution, Marion County Animal Services occasionally offers pets that have learned basic obedience skills from inmates. Some of the skills include sit, stay, come, wait, stay, up, down, off, potty, heel, drop it and crate.

Mercury, pictured above before and after rescue, is ready to begin the rest of his life. A call from a concerned citizen led Animal Services to this horse in need of intervention. The animal control team collected evidence, followed all proper legal channels, and eventually a petition for custody was successful. If you would like to give this well-mannered, 16-year-old, gelding a safe and happy life, contact Marion County Animal Services to meet him.
