This rescue goes above and beyond to help those "difficult" cases. They put their heart and souls into helping as many animals as possible.

A very dedicated group of volunteers who help as many animals as they possibly can, NEVER giving up on any one of them. My pleasure to support these wonder people

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More volunteers and funding so they could help even more

Their passion and commitment are second to none! They all go above and beyond! This past year they were instrumental in helping to shut down and rescue the animals of a shelter run by an unbelievably abusive staff (who are now facing legal charges). Throughout severe illness, stress, lack of sleep, lack of funds, threats, etc. HAL never gave up! They are our heroes!

I have never met a more selfless and beautiful group of people so committed to animal welfare. They more than deserve recognition for absolutely everything they do!

Most amazing rescue; they do so much on a shoe-string budget and have saved so many cats and kittens along the way!

I am so thankful to HAL. My girlfriend and I were in a tight spot when Kati was diagnosed with cancer. They helped raise money and donated to us to help with the vet bills. I am forever grateful.

HAL is a great rescue. They go above and beyond. I'm proud to call them friends. They have offered their assistance many times in the past with my own cat issues (most of which I ended up not needing) and have always been kind to me in the advice department. They may be a small rescue, but they have a HUGE heart and passion for what they do. Whenever I'm able to volunteer time, I am never disappointed. HAL fundraisers are always so interesting and fun and it is always a pleasure meeting other volunteers with the same huge passion for animals as me.

No nonsense charity where every penny benefits the animals. The volunteers tirelessly pursue precarious rescue situations and too often use their own funds to secure the safety and/or medical attention an animal direly needs. I am a cynic and a sceptic and I never hesitate to support HAL.

I've been philanthropically and alturistically involved throughout my adult life. I am very sceptical and do tons of research before opening my wallet. Here are the reasons I never hesitate to support Homeless Animal Lifeline:
1. Dedicated, compassionate and totally selfless volunteers who move every penny to help the animals.
2. The volunteers stay clear of politics, fighting with other rescue groups and excel at collaborating with outside entities if it helps save a life or spread the good word.
3. Beyond rescue and often immediate help, the volunteers educate, reach-out to pet owners in distress and comfort, support and provide guidance.
4. This organization tirelessly explores new and creative venues to raise funds and awareness.
5. - 1000 - For every life saved, for every person educated, for every beating heart of compassion.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them with all the resources they need.

I had the pleasure of working with HAL for many months during a municipal shelter emergency and ultimate quarantine.. They stepped up in the most unbelievable way. Rescued, fostered, networked, and never stopped until every animal in that shelter got out. These folks have saved countless animals. Homeless Animal Lifeline is the best rescue.

HAL's volunteers always go above and beyond to help animals in need. They focus on special-needs animals that most people pass over. This gives these animals a new lease on life. HAL also raises funds for animals that need medical assistance. They helped me earlier this year when my dog needed a blood transfusion. HAL is by far one of the best animal rescue groups in the country!

Homeless Animal Lifeline consistently helps high risk animals, including elderly cats and those with FeLV. In other words, they provide a vital service that gives animals the opportunity to have a great life instead of wasting away in a shelter or being put down due to a lack of space. Additionally, their tireless volunteers assist many feral communities, and their high level of care does not stop even during horrible weather such as blizzards and hurricanes. The leadership of this group is very responsive, polite and knowledgeable, and I know that I can turn to them any time I have a question about cat care.
