NORTH SHORE ANIMAL LEAGUE AMERICA AND EL FARO DE LOS ANIMALES TEAM UP TO SAVE THE LIVES OF 15 PUPPIES

On June 27th, 15 beautiful puppies arrived at the safety of North Shore Animal League America’s no-kill headquarters from Puerto Rico.

The puppies range in age from approximately 14 weeks to five months, and are a variety of mixed breeds and sizes.

The rescue of these Mutt-i-grees (any shelter pet, whether purebred or mixed, canine or feline) is a result of our new relationship with a non-profit no-kill animal sanctuary in Puerto Rico called El Faro de los Animales, or The Animals’ Lighthouse.

Each morning, when the staff and volunteers at El Faro de los Animales arrive to open their doors, they find animals who have been dropped off during the night.

According to Monica Yuma, President of the Board of Directors of El Faro de los Animales, overpopulation and a lack of affordable spay/neuter programs is a very big problem in the region. “It’s lack of both education and money,” she says.

Yuma heard about Animal League America from a member of her board who lives in New York. “We reached out, and were so grateful to know that these puppies will now find safe, loving homes in the United States because of North Shore Animal League.”

As soon as the puppies arrived at our Port Washington, NY, campus, they were evaluated medically and behaviorally by our expert veterinary staff. All will be vaccinated and spayed or neutered before they are placed for adoption.

“Our mission to save innocent lives spans across the country and internationally,” says Joanne Yohannan, Senior VP of Operations at Animal League America. “Wherever animals are in need, we will do everything we can to be there for them.”
