"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 with those ill and lonely. The bears will be donated to those in need of cheer and joy when suffering as the terminally ill, and children awaiting treatments, for life threatening diseases. Those in hospice, convalescent and nursing centers will also delight in receiving hugs and a teddy bear to help make their life complete. Most 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". No bear should ever have to leave surgery without knowing they have a loving family waiting to help care for them and to welcome thim with loving arms! Will you adopt one of our delightful and hugable friends? 

They 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 on our facilities, and how we can serve your home with these delightful, furry new household members!

Featured in the photo above are friends at Mercy Mission. Both were abandoned in an old delapidated building in Los Angeles, under an old suitcase of rags and decayed food. They were sent to our agency to be repaired and bathed  in hot sudsy water and as you can see, "Big Cephas" is still drying out with his short, shaggy mane. He is very protective of his friends at the agency, and both would welcome an opportunity to be adopted by you!

PLEASE visit our pages for more information on how you can participate in giving the lost and lonely a "second chance" at life in a good home....hopefully yours!

 Our dedicated friends and medical volunteers of Mercy Mission make sure all bears are happy, repaired and cleansed when they arrive at Mercy Mission Hospital. Limbs are re-sewn and legs re-attached! Will you become a friend of Mercy Mission Bear Hospital and Adoption Agency?
Dr Marcia Ann Mims Coppertino paraded around the city of Hollywood recently to celebrate with "Dudley", at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

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.

Will you help support Dudley and his friends by becoming a "Friend of Mercy Mission"? Visit our "Events and Announcements" page for more information!
