NSAL America, founded in 1944 is more than just an advocacy group. We advise the public through the various media about how important it is to adopt from a shelter and spay/neuter your pet. We go to shelters and homes to rescue unwanted animals and find them homes with new families. Any sick animals we rescue are cared for in our medical center, and not destroyed as in many other shelters. All this work is able to be done through voluntary public support of caring people all over the world.


Since 1944, North Shore Animal League America has been saving the lives of innocent dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens — over 1,000,000 to date.

Target demographics:

save the lives of as many companion animals as possible and promote education to increase shelter adoptions, reduce animal cruelty and advance the highest standards in animal welfare.

Geographic areas served:

the New York metropolitan/tri-state area


our no-kill mission, the Mutt-i-grees curriculum, adoption events, mobile adoptions, emergency rescues, puppy mill rescues, out of state rescues, spay/neuter initiatives, helping other shelters

This organization is completely run by a self serving, over paid individual whose main concern is image and not quality of the mission at hand. Working limited hours per week with little to no input or progressive thinking he puts NSALA in a bad place. The organization is known in the industry as bullies and labeled the "puppy mill pet store" because of their aggressive tactics to monopolize available animals.

The volunteers and a few key people really do care because it really is about saving lives..but this organization lays off anyone who may disagree or make a suggestion that goes against the grain.

Again, it's a shame because it really could be the National Brand they claim to be.....but unfortunately with the current management will never succeed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

as a former employee

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

Restructure the board of directors with individuals that have the appropriate credentials and progressive ideas to make NSALA a successfull, properly run organization.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of advisors?


How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

A lot

Will you tell others about this organization?
