Every day, the Animal League rescues animals from places where they would otherwise be destroyed, and our no-kill philosophy means that we give each animal the care they need – the care and the second chance that they deserve. Some pets come to us with urgent medical needs ranging from broken bones, skin burns or infections necessitating critical care, to other orthopedic or medical issues requiring surgical intervention. Some animals also come to us with deep emotional scars due to neglect and mistreatment.

Please make a donation today to our Help Me Heal Program, and help us nurture many more animals back to health.

She arrived at North Shore Animal League America’s Port Washington, N.Y. campus as part of a rescue from the Georgia Coalition. She came to us without a minute to spare—Penny could have collapsed and died just from too much running and exercise.

A litter of six Pittie puppies was turned over to an overcrowded municipal shelter in South Carolina, just before Hurricane Dorian swept through the area. Our Emergency Rescue Team was in the area helping our partner shelters affected by the storm, when we picked them up and brought them to the safety of our no-kill campus. After receiving a comprehensive examination by the staff at our Pet Health Centers, all of the pups were found to have some level of skin infections, scarring, possible ear infections, and generally suffering from severe neglect. The worst of these cases was sweet Annabelle, a dark-eyed beauty with sores and patchy skin where her beautiful brindle coat should be.
