PORT WASHINGTON, NY, April 9, 2013 – Individuals who find themselves with vehicles they no longer need may want to think twice before just having those items towed away. Vehicle donors can literally save animals’ lives simply by calling 1-855-MUTT-I-GREE (1-855-688-8447) and donating their vehicles to North Shore Animal League America.

Animal League America’s vehicle donation program is a fast, easy and hassle-free way to support the organization’s vital mission: to rescue, nurture and adopt homeless animals, also known as Mutt-i-grees®.

Animal League America is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. Each year, thanks to the support of generous donors and dedicated staff and volunteers, nearly 20,000 Mutt-i-grees are placed into carefully screened, loving homes. More than one million lives have been saved since its founding in 1944.

The vehicle donation program accepts almost all types of vehicles: cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, snowmobiles, trailers, recreational vehicles and even airplanes. Donors will receive tax credits for their generous gifts, and all necessary tax documentation will be provided.

Typically, the donated vehicle will be picked up within two or three days after the title is received. The process can be expedited by downloading documents and completing the donation process online. Also, if the certificate of title cannot be found, Animal League America can help obtain the proper documentation. The benefits of donating include avoiding the hassle of selling or disposing of a vehicle, free towing (even if the vehicle is not running) and tax deductions as allowable by law. donated its creativity and time to writing and recording a catchy jingle, so remembering the new number will be easy – it’s 1-855-MUTT-I-GREE.

The Mutt-i-grees® Movement generates awareness of the plight of shelter animals, elevates their status and reduces animal cruelty through education and innovative programs. An estimated 8,000,000-10,000,000 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens enter U.S. shelters annually, and tragically, over 4,000,000 of these wonderful animals are destroyed to control pet overpopulation. Millions of lives could be saved when potential pet parents make the simple choice to adopt a pet from a shelter or rescue group, instead of purchasing a pet from a pet store. You can find any type of healthy, vibrant and wonderful dog, cat, puppy or kitten at a shelter near you. Become part of the Mutt-i-grees Movement by adopting a pet today. When you adopt a pet, you save a life and help reduce animal cruelty. Learn more at
