Review for Cochise Canine Rescue, Pomerene, AZ, USA
Cochise Canine Rescue provides care, shelter, and love to dogs who are often overlooked due to health issues or physical "defects". They've given a second chance to many dogs who would otherwise be forgotten, or worse, euthanized. Cochise looks beyond the special needs and sees every dog for what they are: an individual who deserves care and protection.
Review for Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary, German Valley, IL, USA
Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary serves a unique and important purpose: they are the only exotic pet sanctuary in their immediate and surrounding areas. Beth and her volunteers take great measures to provide the best care they can for animals who have been taken from their natural habitat and kept as "pets". When they cannot be returned to the wild, Critter Camp provides the next best thing.
Review for Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/neuter Clinic, Fort Collins, CO, USA
Fort Collins Spay/ Neuter Clinic provides a much-needed service to their community.

Review for Animeals, Missoula, MT, USA
AniMeals is a unique organization that supplements the food needs of homeless animals in shelters, living with low-income families, or members of a feral colony.

Review for Kitty Devore Rescue Network, San Pedro, CA, USA
One look through Kitty Devore's photo gallery tells their story: The photos of happy, healthy felines is a clear indication that Kitty Devore makes the cats in their care their top priority. They work diligently to find lifelong, loving forever homes that these cats deserve. NAVS provided a grant to help spay/neuter cats taken rescued from a high-kill shelter. Thanks to Kitty Devore those cats have a second chance at a long, happy life.
Review for Compassionate Animal Rescue for Medical Aid Inc., Mission Viejo, CA, USA
CARMA is a unique rescue organiztions built on the resources and skills of veterinarian professionals. Their ability to focus on sick and injured animals allows them to give a second chance to animals who might be overlooked by other rescue organizations who lack CARMA's resources. NAVS assisted CARMA with a grant to help pay for Stanley's surgery. (Stanley has since made a full recovery and found his forever home!)
Review for Stray Central, Farmington, AR, USA
Stray Central makes a tremendously positive difference for cats in their community. Not only do they work hard to find forever homes for adoptable cats, they also provided permenant sanctuary for cats with serious medical, emotional or behavioral problems. They limit the number of intakes so that they can provide the very best care possible for their residents. NAVS has been a proud sponsor of Stray Central through our Sanctuary Fund grant program, by helping animals affected by tornadoes and to fund spay/neuter initiatives.
Review for Critter Camp Exotic Pet Sanctuary, German Valley, IL, USA
Critter Camp is a very special place full of very special critters - including the people! Beth Randall never planned to become an animal rescuer, but when people started relinquishing exotic "pets" at her doorstep, she saw a need that had to be fulfilled. She created Critter Camp to give these lost souls a second chance at a healthy, sustainable life. She's devoted her time and her home to making sure these animals will never suffer again. NAVS was proud to award a grant to help them care for a large intake of rescued rats, dubbed the Ratastrophe of 2014!
Review for A Passion for Paws Rescue Inc, La Jolla, CA, USA
A Passion for Paws goes above and beyond the call of duty. Although they specialize in Akita rescues, they also extend care and compassion to other dogs in need. For example, NAVS provided a grant to help pay for the surgery of a Rottweiller who'd been abandoned after being hit by a car. We are proud to help A Passion for Paw's continue their important mission.
Review for Horse Shoe Equine Rescue, Inc., Terre Haute, IN, USA
Horse Shoe Equine Rescue is a wonderful organization making a positive difference in their community. Tammy Barnett is truly the heart and soul of the operation as she gives 100% to the well-being of the horses in her care. NAVS has had the honor of providing HSER with emergency funds to purchase hay when the county rescues they took in put additional strain on their already tight budget. They are definitely worthy of donors' time and resources.
Review for Project Perry, Louisa, VA, USA
Project Perry provides amazing care for their rescued flock. NAVS has had the honor of providing grants to help Project Perry transport neglected birds to permanent sanctuary in Central Virginia. Seeing the progress these amazing animals have made under the care of Matt and the Project Perry staff is truly inspiring. Matt really is a parrot whisperer!
Review for Animal House Jamaica Limited, Jamaica, ,
As the only animal shelter serving the entire northcoast of Jamaica, The Animal House Jamaica does so much with so little. In addition to rescuing and sheltering abandoned animals, they also provide TNR and Humane Education services to help build a more compassionate community. And they do it all in the heart of hurricane territory! NAVS has been a proud sponsor of The Animals House Jamaica through our Sanctuary Fund grant program, helping them repair damage from destructive weather.
Review for For The Love of Pets, Streator, IL, USA
For the Love of Pets serves a purpose unique to our financially trying times: keeping companion animals with the families who love them.

NAVS is proud to have awarded FtLoP grants to help continue their important work.
Review for Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest, Cle Elum, WA, USA
I cannot say enough good things about Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest, home to seven chimps retired from research.

Review for The Hermitage Cat Shelter, Tucson, AZ, USA
Hermitage Cat Shelter is doing tremendous good in their community. Not only do they work hard to rehome adoptable cats, they also provide lifetime care to special needs cats who have limited options. NAVS proudly awarded emergency funds to repair the shelter's foundation and roof (destroyed during the 2014 hurricane season) so that they can continue their important work.
