Pacquito’s coat was dirty and disheveled. He’d been surviving for a year on the streets with a little help from the kind people in his Brooklyn neighborhood who were providing him with food. But now he was suffering — a victim of an unknown trauma.
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.
Cranberry has been loving life in her new home. So much so, her new family have renamed her “Freyja” after the goddess of love in Norse mythology. “She is doing really well! She's adjusted completely and is already spoiled. She has compete control of the house,” says Mark, Freyja’s newly adopted Dad.
Lucy has been adopted! Her foster parents loved her so much they decided they couldn’t live without her. Lucy, and her Maltese sister, Cannoli, are great companions for each other too.
At North Shore Animal League America, our no-kill mission knows no season. Rather, it is a year-round commitment to every dog, cat, puppy and kitten in need.

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.
