When Saving Lives Takes a Social Media Village

When Instagram went down earlier this month — at the same time that Facebook was undergoing intense public scrutiny — people around the world felt the impact. Many pointed out the serious problems with social media, and I agree — there are many. But like everything we humans invent, social media can be used for both good and ill. And when it comes to animal rescue, the positive far outweighs the negative.

When Less Adoptable Means More Lovable

I have a new boyfriend and his name is Ringo Starr. He’s a soulful ginger Tabby with eyes designed to melt hearts. But like most boyfriends, he’s not perfect, which is why adopters at North Shore Animal League America have been passing him by for more than a year! In the world of animal rescue, Ringo is one of the “less-adoptables,” which means, of course, I love him!

Hurricane Ida Canine Rescues Arrive to Helping Hands

On Labor Day, 55 adorable canines exited our Mobile Rescue Unit into the bright sunshine, and into the helping hands of dozens of North Shore Animal League America volunteers and staff. These precious dogs and puppies now have a second chance at life with help from our shelter partner, Paws4Life. They were rescued from Louisiana-area shelters in advance of Hurricane Ida, in order to make room for animals displaced by the storm.

Hurricane Ida Relief

Our Emergency Rescue Team has been in contact with our shelter partner, Paws4Life in Shreveport, Louisiana, as they prepare for Hurricane Ida. The storm is coming in fast and is expected to make landfall this Sunday. We are currently preparing our team to make the journey to help them deal with the aftermath in any way we can. At this difficult time supplies will be hard to come by for those affected by this storm. You can help by donating much needed supplies that our Emergency Rescue Team will bring to the area to be distributed to Paws4Life and other affected shelters in surrounding areas.

The Month of the Sparrow

August, also known as “DOGust,” is a busy month for pet people. Besides being Immunization Awareness Month, it’s chock-full of special dog and cat “holidays,” each reminding us of the importance of caring for the precious animals in our lives. But for me, this month is special for another reason: I will always think of August as the Month of the Sparrow.

Our Animal Rescue Efforts Are Taking to the Skies

This past weekend it was clear skies ahead for the 21 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens who landed at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, NY, on their way to Animal League America and a brighter future. Through a new collaboration with Amelia Air Animal Rescue, and the efforts of our South Carolina partner Lakeside Animal Rescue, Animal League America was able to save these precious animals, some of whom were pulled from overcrowded shelters. All these animals are now well on their way to finding responsible, loving homes as safely and quickly as possible.
