Westhampton Satellite Campus Provides More Hope For Homeless Dogs

At our Westhampton, N.Y. satellite campus, you can meet 20+ of our adoptable dogs, who for one reason or another, have had trouble finding the perfect homes. All of these special dogs were rescued from various parts of the world and transported out to this east-end facility so they can receive extra attention and guidance from our skilled Pet Behavior Team and nurturing kennel staff.

Abandoned and Struggling to Survive

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.

Veterinary Team Comes to Aid of Ailing Kitten

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.

New York City Stray Finds New Life at Animal League America

Barry Allen, a 4-year-old orange tabby, was a stray in desperate need of human intervention.
