Our Emergency Rescue Team continues to assist our shelter partners in the Carolinas and the surrounding areas as they rebound from the devastation caused by Hurricane Florence. Late last week, the team drove three hours from Charlotte, North Carolina, where they were assisting with the live activation of NASCAR on NBC’s PUP SERIES near Charlotte Motor Speedway, to provide relief to the people and animals at Fayetteville Animal Protection Society.

Two lifesaving programs, The Foster Program and Pet Sponsorship Program, provide Sadie Mae, a young Beagle with special needs, the care, compassion and a loving family of her own.
One gift that animals give us is the friendship of other people who love them as much as we do. I met Julia Belle Mason in June 2017 when she traveled from her home in Mississippi to New York for her Make-A-Wish dream come true. Her wish was to visit Animal League America, spend time with me, and meet lots of cats and kittens.
Poppy and Susie quickly became best of friends after meeting in our Adoption Center. Though their time together was short lived, the bond they formed proved to be stronger than anyone could have imagined.
Every rescue pet has a unique story to tell. But some stories stand out as some of our proudest success stories. Take Jamie, a Cocker Spaniel puppy rescued from a Midwestern commercial breeding facility with multiple disabilities, whose photo on one of our social media platforms placed him in the arms of his perfect human companion.

Heartbreaking. There’s simply no other way to describe Forest’s condition when he first arrived at North Shore Animal League America. The 8-year-old Shih Tzu was found abandoned in a vacant parking lot struggling to survive. His black and white coat filthy and severely matted. His ears and skin badly infected. Both front legs mangled, the left also wounded due to the unkempt hair that wrapped itself so tightly around the limb it caused lack of blood flow. There’s no telling how long this poor creature was left to suffer in this condition, but he’ll never feel that pain again thanks to the high quality compassionate care he’ll receive at our Pet Health Centers.
Kittens, so innocent and full of life, should spend their formative years exploring and playing, basking in front of sun drenched windows, and enjoying the company of human companions. Unfortunately, not every animal who finds themselves at our Port Washington, N.Y. campus has the luxury of enjoying such spoils. Recently, we met Trey, a 5-month-old kitten, when he and his sibling were picked up by our Rescue Team and swiftly transported to our Pet Health Centers.
