Mission

A national and international leader in the no-kill movement, North Shore Animal League America is committed to saving and rehabilitating the lives of homeless companion animals and educating the public about the joys and responsibilities of rescue. Founded in 1944, we're the largest, most comprehensive no-kill rescue and adoption organization in the world, with more than 2,000 shelter partners across the country and around the globe. Headquartered in Port Washington, N.Y., we rescue, nurture, and adopt nearly 18,000 pets annually into responsible, loving homes, plus assist in the adoptions of thousands more through our global partnerships. Over the years, we've introduced such lifesaving best practices as mobile adoption, offsite adoption, puppy mill rescue, national low-cost spay/neuter referral, humane relocation, and most recently, the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum, a transformative humane education program based on social-emotional learning and the natural affinity between children and animals. Introduced in 2010, the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum is strengthening the human-animal bond for more than 3,000,000 students across North America, and creating future generations of informed and empathetic adopters.

Pet Rescue and Adoption

North Shore Animal League operates the largest "no kill" animal adoption center in the world. We have successfully adopted into loving homes approximately 20,000 orphaned dogs, cats, puppies and kittens per year for the last 10 years from our Port Washington, NY headquarters. The League has adoped out close to 1 million animals since its inception in 1944. across the country. Adopted the Mutt-I-Grees initiative as a key element in increasing shelter pet adoptions in an effort to elevate mixed breed shelter dogs to a higher status in the eyes of potential adopters.
