One of the most destructive storms in Florida’s history, Hurricane Ian has left residents struggling in its wake. As always in times of crisis, North Shore Animal League America mobilized quickly to help, bringing people together and forging new bonds in the process.
At Animal League America, we see all the amazing things each of our dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens has to offer no matter what their medical condition or where they came from. Little Zucchini lost his eye, but the scar he will bear won’t hold him back from a wonderful future.
First thing you notice about this pocket-sized kitten are his mesmerizing green eyes, if you can keep him still that is! Cricket may have a rare medical condition, but he also has the heart of a survivor and is ready to play.
Forty resilient dogs and puppies — representing a wide array of small breeds — arrived to North Shore Animal League America ready for a fresh start. Rescued in collaboration with long-time partner, National Mill Dog Rescue, these endearing animals came from commercial breeding facilities throughout the Colorado area, where their lives were at risk.
Diagnosed with parvovirus — a potentially deadly disease — three rescued puppies are currently being treated in our Freed Special Recovery Center, while 14 others from two separate litters are in quarantine and under our watchful, round-the-clock care.
Not even a coyote trap was going to stop Dolly — only a year old herself — from taking care of her babies. When North Carolina Animal Control discovered Dolly in the woods, she had the jaws of a trap clamped painfully onto her front paw, and her two precious puppies right by her side.
When North Shore Animal League America got the emergency call from shelter partner, Georgia Animal Rescue Defense, to help with 178 Pomeranians who were surrendered from a backyard breeder, our Rescue Team sprung into action. As soon as they arrived on the scene with our Mobile Rescue Unit, our Rescue Team could see that these dogs had been severely neglected.
