A national pioneer in the no-kill shelter movement, North Shore Animal League America is committed to saving and mending the lives of homeless companion animals and educating the public about the joys and responsibilities of rescue. Founded in 1944, we are the largest, most comprehensive no-kill rescue organization in the world, with over 2,000 shelter partners across the country and around the globe. Headquartered in Port Washington, N.Y., we rescue, nurture, and adopt nearly 18,000 pets annually into responsible, loving homes, plus assist in the adoptions of tens of thousands more through our global partnerships. Over the years, we've introduced such lifesaving practices as mobile adoption, puppy mill rescue, national low-cost spay/neuter referral, humane relocation, and most recently, the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum, a humane education program based on social-emotional learning that's strengthening the human-animal bond for more than 3,000,000 students across North America.
