Mission: 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.
Results: 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.
