MARS relies completely on the generosity of the local community. All item donations are passed directly on to our foster carers to use for the animals in our care.

We have multiple donation locations for your convenience:

Petstock North Mackay and South Mackay - little green bins with our logo, for smaller donations.

Mount Pleasant Shopping Centre  - the big red bins with our logo, for larger donations of food/litter/puppy pads/accessories; one in front of Best and Less, and one next to Master Cobblers.

Coles Rural View (currently unavailable for maintenance)
