Where Do Your Animals Come From?


Where do all the animals in the shelter come from?


Sadly, there are homeless animals all over the country and the Animal League rescues them from death.  Each year, the out of state humane relocation program saves the lives of over 7,000 puppies and dogs nationally by transporting them to the safety of the Animal League.  This is the largest humane relocation program in the country.  In addition, over11,000 more homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are saved through local and tri-state area rescue and adoption programs.  The majority of the rescued animals come from overcrowded municipal animal shelters where they would not have had a chance for adoption.
