Visit the Newborn Puppies & Kittens in Our Nursery

Our Sponsorship Nursery (formerly called the HELP Program) is filled each day with the small cries of orphaned or newborn puppies and kittens. Some days, as many as 100 newborns are in our care – being hand-fed from a bottle, nurtured and cared for until they are healthy and strong enough to be placed for adoption into a loving, permanent home.

Special-needs puppies and kittens are in our care because often, a cat or dog will give birth, but the owner is unable to care for the newborns. The Animal League is often asked by other shelters to lend its support where pregnant dogs or cats are scheduled for destruction unless we step in.

By supporting the Animal League’s Sponsorship Nursery you can help care for newborn animals in need, ensuring that these puppies and kittens receive a chance at life. You can view some of our Nursery puppies and kittens on our live streaming video.
