We go to shelters and homes to rescue unwanted animals and find them homes with new families.

All this work is able to be done through voluntary public support of caring people all over the world.

I adopted one of my most beloved cats from here many years ago. Because of him I even donated a car. What I subsequently discovered was that they would not take I stray kittens that were born in my yard or any other strays that I came across. Not too impressed with NSAL.

I adopted a 6 month old cat in 2006 that had a heart murmur. He had been at NSAL since he was 2 months old, cute as a button, but I suspect no one wanted to adopt a less than perfect cat. I agreed to take him and much to my surprise, NSAL said that they would monitor and treat his heart condition for life free of charge. Since then, for the past 6 years, my cat received the best care with echocardiograms and medication with a caring veterinarian - the same one each time - and wonderful staff members at the hospital. I continue to donate to NSAL whenever I can for the wonderful work they do. I read a few criticisms of the president's compensation which I feel is totally unfair. I worked for nonprofits for over 25 years and you need to compensate talent fairly in order to attract excellent candidates. I am sure that the president of NSAL would make more money in the for profit world.
