“I love being a part of the Volun-TEEN program because it offers me the chance to work with animals and also meet new people my age! I’ve made many friends through the program. We work together to make sure we are getting the job done correctly.” - Samantha Rothstein, Volunteer since 2017.
“I owe Animal League America for all my wonderful cats through the years. I thought to myself that I wanted to be that person who helped someone like me.” - Kathryn St. Juste, Volunteer since 2011.

At first glance, the Tortie named Sabrina—from a South Carolina rescue—seemed like any other eight-month-old kitten. Then one of our veterinarians noticed she was having a difficult time breathing. He immediately thought it might be a lung issue and ordered an x-ray to investigate further.
Seeing Bean today posing for a photo in his red bow tie or romping in the snow with his canine sibling in his Long Island, N.Y. home, you would never know what an incredible story he has. Bean had to fly 8,500 miles and wait more than a year to find “his” family.
I’ve been thinking a lot about friendships lately. It all started as I watched some magical relationships develop among my foster nuggets. I say friendship, but love is a better word for what bloomed between Moonrock and Mr. Gray.
During February, everyone’s thoughts turn to love and these two dogs, Hercules and Vesty, can teach us a lesson or two. These five-year-old “brothers” are bonded as much as any real siblings could be. They rely on each other to be happy and they do everything together. Including being sweet and loving favorites of our staff and volunteers.
February is a month with HEART. So we’re focusing on both heart health and sweethearts! Adopt or help promote a special-needs cat who has a lot of heart and may just need some extra care to keep them healthy. Heart conditions are not always troublesome—often they can be controlled with regular veterinary visits and medication. Many heart conditions are quite common in animals, and it doesn’t mean they can’t live happy lives. It’s time to find yourself a kitty sweetheart who really needs someone to love!
North Shore Animal League America’s Mobile Rescue Team huddled through tornado alerts with blaring sirens and then faced snow and below-freezing temperatures during their seven-state trip to rescue mill dogs and puppies in a collaborative effort with our partner, National Mill Dog Rescue.
Not only is February Valentine’s month, it’s also Kitten Bowl season. This year, the first weekend in February was especially special, with two fantastic bowl games — Cat Bowl I on Saturday and Kitten Bowl VI on Sunday (Thank you, Hallmark Channel!) — plus several glorious adoptions at our house.
