Since 2008, the athletes running for Team Animal League in events like the TCS NYC Marathon and the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon have raised an incredible $1.7 million in support of our lifesaving work.
Net proceeds from the 2021 TCS NYC Marathon benefited the operation of Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. These critical funds helped us find homes for rescue pets like Team Captain Scott Guber’s beloved cat Belle, who Scott adopted from us ten years ago. Leading Team Animal League for the twelfth time in this iconic race, Scott told us that the runners have extra motivation in knowing their efforts have a direct impact: “It’s a great opportunity to help because the funds we raise go right to the bottom line. This is my thirty-fifth marathon, and while the excitement can wane after so many, it always feels amazing to support Animal League America, and see what we have accomplished at BFF.”
We are so grateful for the tireless efforts of all teammates, whose dedication ensures we keep our momentum building to a no-kill future. If you have a passion for running and for animals, join us! As a member of Team Animal League you become an important part of our mission to save homeless dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens in need.
You don’t have to get off the couch to be part of Team Animal League. Help us cross the finish line by making a donation to the team, or by supporting a runner to reach their fundraising goal.
