Our Vision:

A future in which all companion animals find responsible, loving homes where they are free from abuse, hunger, fear, and loneliness and receive the care and respect they deserve.

Since 1944, North Shore Animal League America has been saving the lives of defenseless dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens — over 1,100,000 to date.

We have an unwavering commitment to rescue, nurture, and adopt animals and are proud to be:

  • The world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization.
  • A leader in the no-kill movement, rescuing and rehabilitating animals instead of euthanizing them.
  • An innovator in animal welfare to create a more sustainable world for all companion animals.
  • A strong voice, elevating the status and promoting the acceptance of mixed-breed animals — Mutt-i-grees® — through advocacy and education.
  • A collaborative organization that’s built a national network of shelter and rescue partners.
  • A trusted source for information, education, and resources that increase adoptions and enhance the lives of adopters and their pets.
