Get to Know Apollonia

Our beautiful friend Apollonia returned to us recently when her family could no longer care for her. We are saddened to be reunited with her as we had hoped she’d found a home to spend her life in after a perilous beginning for this sweet senior. We’ve committed to brightening her days with all the love and support she’d grown to appreciate from us in the past, and look forward to finding her a family worthy of such a loving fur friend. She’s already greeting us with enthusiastic pigeon purrs, grateful for the peaceful space we’ve provided her. Because Apollonia is a member of our Sponsor Program, all of the costs for her Irritable Bowel Disease are completely covered through our Pet Health Centers in Port Washington. Apollonia has told us she’d appreciate being the only pet in her home, and we are happy to honor her request. Although our reunion is bittersweet, we see she is the same regal beauty we remember her to be; we look forward to introducing her to a new family committed to devoting their whole hearts to her.

High-Quality Medical Care

For the first 15 days following your adoption, we care for an adopted animals in our medical center. An adoption counselor will provide any adopter with specific details on what medical services are covered. After this period, adopters can transition to our Pet Health Center where our high-quality veterinary care continues.

Our Pet Health Center

We offer low-cost, high-quality veterinary care to all dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens—including pets not adopted here. Our quality veterinarian team provides all the services you would expect from a private veterinary practice, and when you visit our Pet Health Center, not only do you receive low-cost pet care, but proceeds help support our mission to save lives.

Discounted Specialty Services at The Animal Medical Center (AMC)

North Shore Animal League America has partnered with The Animal Medical Center (AMC) in New York City to provide high quality specialty veterinary services for our adopters at a discounted rate. Every North Shore Animal League America adopter is issued a special tag that entitles the adopter to 20% off any specialty medical services.

The good news is that the prices in our Pet Supply Store are often lower than some of the large, discount chain stores, and our store is staffed by knowledgeable, animal professionals who can answer all of your pet care questions.
