Main Line Animal Rescue (Chester Springs, Pennsylvania 19425) is considered by many to be the finest animal shelter in the United States. With more than four hundred active volunteers, thousands of animals helped every year, a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic, innovative training and educational programs, and almost sixty acres of fenced pastures and walking trails, MLAR is not only a sight to behold but an experience you will never forget.
Every year, Main Line Animal Rescue assists hundreds of dogs, cats, and rabbits transferred to our facility from overcrowded city shelters. Many of these animals are in need of costly and immediate medical care. We also carefully screen and find new homes for animals privately surrendered by families unable to care for them any longer, and rescue and rehabilitate countless dogs from Pennsylvania’s notorious puppy mills.
Main Line Animal Rescue is nationally recognized as a leader in the fight against puppy mill abuse. Our 2008 billboard in Chicago led to Oprah Winfrey’s groundbreaking and award winning expose on puppy mills and featured our undercover investigation with acclaimed journalist Lisa Ling. One year later, our efforts with Suzanne Smalley of Newsweek led to Whole Foods Markets issuing a directive to all their suppliers: they would no longer source any products from farmers also operating puppy mills. In 2011, MLAR wrapped a transit bus on the streets of Washington DC to draw attention to the USDA’s continued failure to protect dogs in federally licensed breeding kennels. Our work on behalf of puppy mill dogs has been profiled in People and featured on the Today show, Nightline, and numerous Animal Planet television programs. Main Line Animal Rescue was also instrumental in the passing of Pennsylvania’s new dog laws.
Pope Memorial SPCA of Concord-Merrimack County (Concord, New Hampshire 03301) is dedicated to caring for abandoned and homeless pets, protecting and advocating for pets in need, and promoting the humane treatment of all animals.
Vision Statement: The Pope Memorial SPCA envisions our community to be a safe haven for animals, where the animal-human bond is nurtured and all animals are treated with compassion and respect.
The shelter strives to place homeless animals in loving homes that are committed to their lifetime care. This goal is facilitated by medically and behaviorally evaluating all animals, providing necessary veterinary care and working closely with applicants to ensure a successful match.
We do not euthanize animals for time or space, and many stay with us for weeks or even months waiting patiently to be adopted.
Dark Horse Rescue (Hernando, Mississippi 38632) began in early 2009 in response to a growing need of a safe place for abandoned and neglected horses in the West Tennessee and North Mississippi area. We have grown from a backyard to a fully-functioning rescue facility located in Byhalia, MS.
Dark Horse Rescue is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that provides proper nutrition and medical care to area horses that have been abandoned, neglected, or abused. Upon arrival, each horse is placed in quarantine in order to avoid spread of disease. Horses are evaluated in order to determine nutritional needs and their diet is adjusted accordingly. Pregnant mares stay at DHR until foals are weaned at which time mare and foal are separately placed up for adoption.
Today, DHR has rehabilitated over 50 horses and placed most in adoptive homes. We continue to grow thanks to the wonderful support we have received throughout the community.
The Southern California German Shepherd Rescue (San Diego, California 92115) is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, providing spay/neuter and veterinary care, and re-homing German Shepherds and other pets in Southern California.
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we are funded through tax-deductible donations from adopters and individuals like you who care about the fate of these neglected companion animals. SCGSR specializes in helping ill and unadoptable abandoned pets regain their health and placing them into caring, loving forever homes. Together, we can envision a day when companion animals will no longer face inhumane treatment, abandonment or perish in shelters.
Everyday, dogs and cats are born or become disabled, and pet owners face difficult decisions regarding their care. Disabilities can include blindness, deafness, birth defects, injuries, inability to walk properly, paralysis and amputation among others. Treatment and rehabilitation are often expensive, and many owners simply cannot afford to treat their beloved pets. Even when funds are available, many cannot commit to the time and emotional investment. Meanwhile, shelters—overcrowded with healthy, adoptable cats and dogs—often euthanize these disadvantaged animals due to lack of funds, knowledge, time and space.
Disabled animals are the least likely to be adopted and among the most likely to be euthanized in traditional shelters.
Animals With Disabilities (Mountlake Terrace, Washington 98043) gives animals a chance to survive and lead near-ordinary lives. We provide support and information for pet owners, as our top priority is to help families keep their pets and properly care for them. When that’s not possible, AWD’s small network of foster homes accepts, treats, and rehabilitates the disabled animals we receive from shelters, veterinary clinics and the general public—so we can return them to permanent, caring homes. We are setting up an extensive online library with information and resources to educate both caregivers and shelters on how to care for special-needs animals. We provide financial assistance to owners who are able to care for their pets but cannot afford the sometimes costly treatments and rehabilitation.
Kilo Company of 42 Commando Royal Marines arrived in the war torn town of Now Zad in Helmand Province of Afghanistan in November 2006. Their mission: provide stability for the local people during a period of ever decreasing security.
The Royal Marines soon realized that it wasn’t only the local people that needed their help. Many of the stray dogs that roamed the town of Now Zad now had a guardian for the first time in their lives, in the form of Royal Marine Sergeant ‘Pen’ Farthing.
Breaking up an organised dog fight that was taking place right outside their remote compound, Pen never realized that one of those fighting dogs would then befriend him. The Royal Marine couldn’t say no to those big sad eyes and the now very former fighting dog became the Royal Marine’s four-legged buddy and got a name: Nowzad. From that moment on, Pen realized that other soldiers serving in Afghanistan would probably be experiencing the same feelings as he was towards a companion animal they were caring for on the front lines. In May 2007, Pen formed Nowzad Dogs to help make a difference in Afghanistan.
Nowzad Dogs is a registered 501c3 non-profit in the state of Illinois, USA overseen by a board of directors and we are a registered charity in England & Wales – number 1119185 overseen by a board of trustees.
Nowzad Dogs operates the only official animal shelter in Afghanistan located just outside of Kabul and supported by a small animal clinic headed up by ex-pat Louise and her team of Afghan nationals.
