Start fundraising for homeless animals today!

We need you now more than ever to fundraise and help us continue our no-kill mission to rescue dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and find them loving, responsible homes during these uncertain times.

Meet Our Ambassadors!

Join Tatiana McNeil and her North Shore Animal League America rescue pup, Willow, as they lead the pack for our 2020 Virtual Walk & Wag! It was love at first sight for all-star baseball player Jeff McNeil when Animal League America brought rescue pups to CitiField during the summer of 2019. Jeff immediately FaceTimed his wife Tatiana. After a home run during that night’s game, Jeff and Tatiana agreed that Willow was their good luck charm and they adopted her. While Jeff is playing a delayed season of baseball, Tatiana and Willow will be representing the McNeil family by being our 2020 Virtual Walk & Wag Ambassadors!

You can make a lifesaving donation to their team or register today to start your own walk!

Due to state and government regulations from the COVID-19 pandemic, North Shore Animal League America has been unable to hold in person fundraising events.  To further connect the animal loving community and due to the health and safety of our supporters, this traditionally in person and virtual event will be held entirely virtual for 2020.  You are encouraged to walk while practicing social distancing by wearing masks, staying 6 feet apart and by using video chat to walk together.
