We are super excited to see you at this years Open House and all the positive response we have received. We’re not afraid of a little rain, however, thunder and lightning are predicted tomorrow, which is another story. Safety is our main concern for everyone and all our four-legged friends. Due to this, we will be rescheduling our Open House to Saturday, October 21st. from 11 am – 2 pm. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, but we hope to see you next weekend. Fingers crossed the sun will be shining.

Healing at the Sanctuary

Gideon & Vadar Training 2For most dogs, human companionship offers the highest quality enrichment. For most shelters, however, staff and trained volunteers who can provide this enrichment are often in short supply.

Mackenzie’s strives to provide at least five 20-minute sessions a week with a human for every dog, and provides more whenever possible.  To make the most of their limited time, Mackenzie’s varies the activities that dogs and humans do together.


These activities are richly stimulating, mentally and socially. They also provide a variety of sensory experiences. A big ‘Thanks’ to Sarah & Brenda!  Staff & Volunteers like you have a huge impact on making our dogs more adoptable!
