As the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization, North Shore Animal League America’s hands-on dedication to animal rescue is unmatched. We take pride in knowing that our rescue efforts have saved the lives of more than 1,100,000 animals since we opened our doors in 1944.

Through our Humane Relocation and Mobile Rescue Programs, and our partnerships with rescue groups from across the country and around the globe, we are able to transport thousands of animals back to our Port Washington, NY Adoption Center each year to help find them responsible, loving homes.

If you work with a shelter or rescue group in your area, and would like to learn more about how you can participate in this vital program, please submit our Rescue Request Form.
