We have been responsibly and compassionately protecting, advocating and educating for animal welfare since 1956.

The MCHA is an independent 501c(3) non-profit organization that receives no government funding or regular funding from national organizations. While the MCHA does participate in hands on rescue work with local and regional law enforcement agencies, the MCHA is not an animal shelter, but an animal welfare and advocacy organization.

The MCHA established and ran what is now the City of Bloomington Animal Shelter in the 1950's - 2000's, along with hiring the first animal control officers and obtaining a humane shelter certification for the shelter in the early days of animal sheltering. The two organizations have shared space, staff, programs and visions of a humane community since the late 1950's. While the City of Bloomington Animal Shelter is fully funded by tax dollars, there are many things needed to strategically address a wide variety of animal related issue in our community, in addition to sheltering homeless animals.

Today the MCHA provides services and programs working in concert with the City of Bloomington Animal Shelter, PetsAlive, local veterinary clinics, national advocacy organizations and other partners to identify, build resources and create solutions for animal welfare issues.
