Reducing Euthanasia

Approximately 8-10 million animals enter shelters each year, and tragically, 3-4 million of those animals are euthanized. As a no-kill pioneer, we address euthanasia head-on to save lives.

Our adoption efforts are unmatched in the number of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens that we rescue, nurture and place into permanent homes each year.

We offer comprehensive and affordable spay/neuter services in tandem with educational campaigns to reduce the number of unwanted births. Our SpayUSA program, the nation’s largest spay/neuter referral service, provided over 50,000 low-cost spay/neuter referrals within the past 12 months. By providing these spay/neuter services, the Animal League helps end the suffering of innocent dogs and cats by reducing the number of unwanted births.

Our Mutt-i-grees® initiative generates awareness of shelter pets, provides benefits to shelter and rescue groups across the U.S., offers important education to encourage shelter adoptions and helps the next generation of children become more socially and emotionally aware — and be kinder to the animals.
