Bianca’s Furry Friends Campaign

A Season of Change

Construction on Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center has been in full swing this summer as we move closer to the completion of the 14,000-squre-foot facility. Our Port Washington, N.Y. campus is abuzz as the state-of-the-art building begins to take shape.

Construction crews have been taking advantage of the nice weather, working tirelessly to lay the concrete foundation, form elevator shafts and stairwells, and connect steel support columns to the existing structure. Brick by brick this lifesaving facility is taking shape right in front of our eyes. It won’t be too long before this beautiful new building is filled with even more adoptable animals than ever before.

All of us here at the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization couldn’t be more excited, and we appreciate your ongoing support.

Continue to check back for more updates on the progress of this exciting new addition to our Long Island campus.

You can help make Bianca’s Furry Friends a reality, and help further our no-kill mission for years to come.

It’s an exciting time here at the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization. Spring has sprung at last, and construction has officially begun on Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center!

If you happen to visit our Port Washington, N.Y. campus you’ll notice bright orange construction netting around several areas of the building, fences encapsulating the visitor parking lot, and scaffolding atop the roof; all signs pointing towards the beginning of renovations on this highly anticipated project. This state-of-the-art feline focused adoption center will not only provide more fulfilling lives to all of the cats and kittens who inhabit it, but free up space in other areas of our campus so we can continue to save the lives of more companion animals from both near and far!

Last fall, North Shore Animal League America National Spokesperson, Volunteer, and Foster Parent, joined her colleagues to break ground for Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. This state-of-the-art facility will allow us to rescue many more animals by adding a second floor to the existing shelter that will house a cage-free, natural living environment for felines.

“It’s a dream that’s coming true,” Beth said. “It’s been four years of hard work, fundraising, working with architects, and just believing that this day would actually be here – and here it is!”

Every year, North Shore Animal League America rescues, nurtures and finds loving homes for thousands of homeless, ailing and neglected animals. But our shelter facilities are always operating at full capacity; as much as we’d like to take in every precious animal that needs our help, space limitations are an enormous problem.

We have a solution! Bianca’s Furry Friends, our proposed state-of-the-art Feline Adoption Center named in honor of Howard and Beth Stern’s beloved best friend, will enable us to rescue many more animals by adding a second floor to our existing shelter.

This feline-focused Center will help us save the lives not only of cats and kittens, but also dogs and puppies, as it will open room in our existing facility.

The bottom line: More lives will be saved because of your generous support.

We need your help to turn this state-of-the-art project into a reality. Your contribution will go directly to support Bianca’s Furry Friends.
