Mid-Hudson Animal Aid (Beacon, New York 12508) has been providing a safe haven for cats since 1979.


MHAA is a no-kill cat sanctuary dedicated to providing a safe haven for abandoned and abused felines in the Hudson Valley and beyond. Our residents are given humane and compassionate care in a free range environment while awaiting their forever homes. MHAA is committed to educating and informing the public about responsible pet ownership, placing animals in good adoptive homes, and encouraging spaying and neutering in our community to curb animal overpopulation and suffering.

The Potter League for Animals (Middletown, Rhode Island 02842) is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of animals. We promote the humane treatment of all animals and provide shelter and care for lost or unwanted companion animals. Through community education and the fostering of relationships between people and animals, we enhance the animals’ future and enrich the human experience.


The Potter League is an “open admission” shelter which is able to help as many pets as possible. We accept all owner-surrendered animals from Newport County as well as all stray animals from those communities with which we have an animal control-housing contract. Approximately 2,000 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other small animals are received at our facility annually. The Potter League consistently maintains a Live Release Rate of 90% or higher through placement to new families, returned to their owners or released to another facility or rescue group. Our commitment to all animals means we are willing to pursue all reasonable efforts in order to provide for their well-being. In addition, almost 2,000 animals and their owners seek our other obedience, lost and found, cremation and behavior support services each year. We are the community’s animal care and resource center.

The Lander Pet Connection (Lander, Wyoming 82520) was founded in 1996 by Sydney Miller to rescue abandoned and homeless companion animals, and to provide them with new, loving adoptive homes.


We exist because Lander has no animal shelter so stray dogs, unwanted cats, abandoned puppies, abused pets and all other homeless companion animals have nowhere to turn. Previously, stray dogs impounded by Animal Control were taken to the Wind River Vet Clinic, who was contracted and paid by the city of Lander to keep a dog for five days (there is no city provision of any kind for cats). Because any dog not retrieved by its owner or adopted within five days would be destroyed, the Lander Pet Connection was born.

Once a dog comes to our facility, the Lander Pet Connection steps in and picks up the full cost of boarding and feeding the animal until a home can be found. The care LPC provides includes walking, training, socializing, paying for medical treatment, spaying and neutering, feeding, networking for possible adopters, locating foster homes and advertising the animals’ availability.

We are a no-kill facility.  Once an animal is with us, s/he stays until a wonderful home has been found.

Delaware SPCA

The Delaware SPCA (Newark, Delaware 19713; Georgetown, Delaware 19947) is a private non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of animal cruelty, neglect and overpopulation by providing services for people and their companion animals since 1873.

We do not receive federal funding, and there is no national SPCA. We rely primarily on local donations to carry on our work for the animals.

Shelter on the Hill (Lebec, California 93243) is a private, non-profit, donor supported, organization whose purpose is to operate a haven to rescue, reunite and re-home lost and abandoned companion animals in the Frazier Mountain area of California.


Dedicated to promoting humane treatment and quality of life, SOTH accepts all animals in need of care, provides appropriate medical and behavioral intervention, rehabilitation, socialization, and adoption efforts to save the lives of as many adoptable animals and remains committed to the welfare of these animals beyond the adoption process to the extent of its resources – and offers community support through a myriad of services including but not limited to, lost and found, sheltering, adoption, foster care, behavior and training, humane education, pet assistance for people in need, and inter-agency networking.

The mission of Duck Team 6 (Dallas, Texas 75214) is to reduce the street dog population through Capture, Placement, and Outreach.


Since 2010, we’ve captured hundreds of dogs from the streets and found permanent, loving homes for them. We rely on your support to help us continue to bring awareness to the stray, abused, neglected, and homeless dogs in the Dallas area.

Duck Team 6 captures elusive dogs that need to be rescued and off the streets. Sometimes Good Samaritans notify us about dogs that need to be rescued, and sometimes we find these dogs on our own. In many cases, they are hurt, in heat, malnourished, or in danger of being hit by oncoming traffic. A search & capture mission can take days, weeks, or even months. Whenever someone steps up and agrees to take a street dog into their home or rescue group, the Ducks will deploy!

Our Community Outreach program helps Dallas residents who are struggling to provide adequate care for their beloved pets. We work with SoupMobile to provide pet food to low-income families, and also assist with basic vet care like vaccinations and sterilization and sometimes even emergency surgery. We’ve also been able to provide dog houses and fencing for families so their pets don’t have to live on a chain.

Animal Aid, Inc.

The recovery and adoption center at Animal Aid, Inc. (Oakland Park, Florida 33334) takes in injured, neglected or unwanted cats and dogs from county shelters. We are supported completely by donations.


Animal Aid Cat Room

One of our goals is to address the overpopulation problem of stray and feral cats by offering the public a humane trap/spay/return service. Our program includes vaccinations, Aids/Leukemia testing,  recovery & release, foster homes, medical care, and an adoption program.

The mission of Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary (San Jose, California 95157) is to offer care and a peaceful living environment for abused, physically handicapped, aged or homeless animals. Our goal is to provide an open space facility where these ‘special needs’ animals can be provided with medical care, love, and attention that will ultimately lead to adoption. If necessary, the sanctuary will provide a lifetime refuge for these animals.


The Sanctuary will also provide a relocation point for feral cats in an effort to reduce the growing population in Silicon Valley. Efforts will be made to reduce the population through spaying, neutering, vaccinating and releasing them into a natural and safe environment.

Safe Haven Animal SanctuarySM is a newly formed non-profit organization whose goal is to establish a facility which is unique to Silicon valley. Currently, we are seeking to connect with individuals or businesses that are interested in investing in the vision and mission of the Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary.


PawsWatch (Newport, Rhode Island 02840) is a group of volunteers that provides veterinary care and shelter to improve the lives of feral and unowned cats.


Founded in 1997, PawsWatch is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. PawsWatch has provided veterinary care to more than 16,000 cats as of 2012. Before the inception of PawsWatch, the life of cats found living in colonies in Rhode Island neighborhoods was bleak — having to fight the elements of nature, living and reproducing in starvation and squalor, and often facing poisoning or mass roundup for death. Our goal is not to personally help every feral cat, but to teach Rhode Islanders to help the cats in their own neighborhoods.

There is new hope for feral and unowned cats through a new approach called TNRM (Trap, Neuter, Return, Monitor), which is proving to be a better way to treat this once condemned population. PawsWatch is part of a large and growing grassroots effort to transform “street cats” into healthy managed colonies, which decline through attrition. We provide resources, equipment, and guidance to make this goal possible. We believe that lasting change can come only from a widespread foundation of community involvement.

The mission of Rabbit Advocates (Portland, Oregon ) is to promote the welfare of domestic rabbits.


We aim to place surrendered or abandoned rabbits in loving homes where they will be welcomed as family members. Formerly a part of the Oregon Humane Society, in 2002 we created a group solely devoted to promoting the welfare of domestic rabbits. The Rabbit Advocates operate an education and adoption website as well as a help line. We hold rabbit adoption outreach events and other activities at locations around the Portland Metro Area and hold monthly meetings at Humane Society for Southwest Washington, 1100 NE 192nd Ave., Vancouver, WA.
