North Shore Animal League America’s most far-reaching program, our Out of State Nationwide Pet Rescues, are responsible for saving over 150,000 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens since the program’s inception in 1991.
For these on-going rescues, we use our well-equipped, climate-controlled Mobile Rescue Units to transport pets from areas where they would be destroyed to Animal League America. Rescues are conducted from overcrowded municipal shelters in other states, including North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Florida just to name a few.
Closer to home, our rescue units routinely collaborate with municipal shelters in the New York metropolitan area to rescue the puppies, kittens, dogs, and cats slated for death, and bring them to the safety of our Port Washington, N.Y. Adoption Center.
All animals are medically and behaviorally evaluated as they arrive at Animal League America, where they receive the individualized medical care and any rehabilitation they need to be readied for adoption.
