Small-Breed Mixes Are Ready for Big-Hearted Adopters

Animal League America Collaborates with the Heigl Foundation for Cross-Country Rescue Aboard the Mutt-i-grees® Express

North Shore Animal League America welcomed 60 canines of all ages from L.A. County on February 7th, all looking for permanent homes with adopters who will give them a lifetime of love.

The adorable dogs, who will begin to go up for adoption on Saturday, February 9th, include mixes of Chihuahuas, Poodles, Terriers and other small breeds. As with all our rescues, the dogs will be medically and behaviorally evaluated and spayed or neutered before being placed for adoption at our Port Washington, NY, headquarters.

The animals, all at risk of euthanasia before their arrival at our no-kill shelter, were rescued as part of Animal League America’s Mutt-i-grees® Express, a humane relocation program that transports thousands of animals to a new life every year.

The rescue was part of a collaborative effort of Animal League America and The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, founded by actress Katherine Heigl and her family.

“Our collective goal is to reduce the euthanasia rate at three L.A. County shelters by transporting animals to forever homes in New York communities where the demand for companion pets is high,” said Heigl Foundation co-founder Nancy Heigl. “Working with North Shore Animal League America will allow us to combine resources to help achieve this target and also to promote joint adoption events which will ultimately save more lives.”

Animal League America is dedicated to finding permanent homes for as many innocent animals as possible, and we need your support. Please click here to donate to our life-saving work, or click here to find out more about all the animals available for adoption.
