Morris Animal Refuge

The Morris Animal Refuge is America’s first animal shelter. Elizabeth Morris began sheltering animals in her own home in 1855. As a pioneer in animal welfare, she formalized this shelter as the Morris Animal Refuge in 1874 and since that time, Morris has never turned an animal in need away from our Doorstep 🙂 We are an open admission, lifesaving organization with a current save rate of 97%.
