Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are working to address the need for more space in our shelter to accommodate our growing rescue efforts. We have expanded our programs by helping more dogs and cats all over the United States and need more space to provide a safe haven for them.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Low cost spay/neuter

At Save-A-Pet, we work hard to protect and improve the lives of all animals. We believe in TNR (trap, neuter, return) of feral and free roaming cats. We provide traps, spay/neuter service, boarding and vaccines for feral cats.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our primary program is finding homes for orphaned companion animals. Our adoption program is successful due to our integrity. We make sure every animal gets spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, blood tested and healthy before he/she leaves to a new, forever home.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue goes into schools from K-12 educating children on the importance of spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership. We also go into nursing homes and other facilities to spread awareness and education with therapy dogs.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth

Saving animals from high-kill shelters in southern states.

Population(s) Served
Adults

This program is designed to help senior animals find forever homes. So many older dogs and cats die in kill shelters every day, whether their owners passed away or they required too much medical care, surgeries, or are ill. These animals are so deserving of love and life. Senior pets make wonderful companions. They are usually housebroken, gentle and eager to please. This program provides free adoption, free food, and annual vaccines to any owners who adopt one of our seniors!

Population(s) Served

The “Pit Bull Problem” is a human problem, as with most “animal problems”. But Save-A-Pit and you can be the solution.

Save-A-Pit works to change this misguided stigma through education, awareness and providing these wrongly mis-understood dogs with the chance to show what, loyal, intelligent loving family members they truly are.

Save-A-Pit:

– Fights against the unfair and bias Breed Specific Legislation

– Promotes the positive with focus on what heroes they are today being service animals in Search and Rescue, K-9 officers, therapy dogs, in addition to loyal family members.

– Supports legislation that protects victims of dog fighting.

– Saves Pit Bulls on death row

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We would like to expand to a larger facility to better help with the ever growing population of homeless companion animals and be able to have indoor/outdoor runs for our dogs and larger yards for exercise and training. Our clinic is small and our goal is to expand it so we are able to provide more low/no cost spay/neuter services to a greater number of animals.

We will continue to raise awareness, raise funds and continue our humane education programs throughout Long Island and beyond so that people are educated on the plight of homeless, abandoned and abused animals, and encourage people to adopt a pet in need.

Save-A-Pet will continue fundraising efforts and social media campaigns, and bequest opportunities to reach beyond the existing donor base. We are expanding our humane education program to become a formal program to adhere to the New York State Education standards. Our fundraising efforts include: Hounds on the Sound( a dog walk and adoption festival) which is held in June, Mutts & Merlot(fundraiser in the vineyards of Eastern Long Island) and our annual Fur Ball, (a dinner/dance and auction), held in November.

We have rescued and rehomed over 25,000 companion animals who's fate would have been uncertain or certain death. We are a no-kill shelter and our animals are treated as family. Each animal is an individual that receives the utmost care, medically, physically and psychologically and we are very proud of that. Our reputation is stellar and our TNR clinic is busy spaying and neutering feral cats all week long. Our team has decades of experience and knowledge. We have transformed two, once empty buildings, into a safe haven and refuge for orphaned animals.
