DeForest & Carolyn Kelley Memorial Fund

In loving memory of DeForest and Carolyn Kelley, this fund has been re-established at the request of their fans. Mr. and Mrs. Kelley were generous and kind-hearted supporters of North Shore Animal League America’s No-Kill mission to Rescue, Nurture and Adopt homeless pets in need, our Mutt-i-grees®. In fact, “De” used to refer to North Shore Animal League America as his “fondest cause”.

Donations to the DeForest and Carolyn Kelley Memorial Fund will help support our ongoing mission, which includes:

  • Shelter Operations: Our shelter cares for so many puppies, kittens, adult dogs and cats awaiting adoption
  • Rescue: Providing humane relocation of abused animals, puppy mill and emergency rescues that take pets out of harm’s way
  • Mobile Adoption Units: We conduct hundreds of off-site adoption events annually helping other shelters and rescue groups save more lives
  • Pet Health Center: Our state-of-the-art facility that provides top-quality veterinary care to thousands of animals annually
