"Mercy Mission Bear Hospital and Adoption Agency" has as it's core mission the desire to receive, repair and bring back to life discarded, and no longer wanted teddy bears, to share for adoption and to present donated new bears with those ill and lonely, especially sick and homeless children.

New teddy bears are donated to children in need of cheer, joy and financial resources when suffering from terminally ill diseases, or awaiting treatments for life threatening illnesses. Children in hospice centers truly appreciate a loving teddy bear to hold and comfort them at night. 

Our Seniors and Elder friends also benefit from Mercy Mission volunteers, and a warm, new teddy bear! Those confined in convalescent and nursing centers also delight in receiving hugs and a teddy bear to help make their life complete. Other requested services are offered our elders and many just simply appreciate a regular visit. Mercy Mission loves our friends of wisdom and seek out resources and referral agencies to assure their welfare and happiness. 

Many of our teddy bears come from broken homes, and are left abandoned by their previous owners or simply discarded once the owners feel they are no longer necessary for their comfort and joy. Other bears are simply forwarded to us for sanctuary and healing after various forms of "reconstructive surgery" caused by abuse. Mercy Mission feels that no bear should ever have to leave surgery or extensive repair services without knowing they have a loving family waiting to help care for them, and to welcome them with loving arms! Will you adopt one of our delightful and huggable friends? 

Mercy Mission Bears are eagerly awaiting a good home and pleasant surroundings, and will prove to be "just what the Doctor ordered", in renewing your life with pleasure. Please take a moment to browse our pages for additional information, and how you can welcome a delightful, furry new household members!

Dudley received a lot of staredowns and Marcia joined in the fun by "play acting" on the street in front of The Hollywood Reporter Star! 

"Oh life is so good...with a bear by your side", she exclaimed as she signed several the name of Mercy Mission Hospital.

January 19, 2013, 10am, was a great day in Los Angeles county as the "Groundbreaking Ceremony" took place for the temporary Mercy Mission Bear Hospital and Adoption Agency. The hospital was completed in record breaking time, and all present at the dedication services were overjoyed at the beauty of the hospital cottage!

During the fall of 2014, our hospital will be moved from it's temporary site to our new hospital building. The new site will share several stories of space with department units such as a teddy bear adoption agency and a hospital repair and "surgical" unit; a teddy bear Chapel of Prayer; teddy bear art gallery and  museum; the famous TEDDY BEAR MAUSOLEUM OF THE GOLDEN WEST for teddy bears beyond repair; a children's stay and play station; healing gardens; a hospital gift shop; an adult daycare center for fun and new friends; and more!
