The Nevada SPCA (Las Vegas, Nevada 89118), a nonprofit organization, operates a no-kill animal shelter, promotes humane education, makes referrals for lower-cost spay/neuter and vaccination services, and challenges people to be the best possible guardians for the companion animals in their care.


We work to achieve our adoption goals by treating each animal as an individual, with a name instead of a number.  We strive to match each rescued animal with people by personality and lifestyle in order to have the best chance to find a forever home.

We seek homes for the animals where they will be treated, cherished, and appreciated as members of the family.

Castaway Cats Rescue of Coastal Georgia is a state licensed, non-profit, 501(c)(3) cat rescue working in the Savannah, Richmond Hill, Hinesville, Brunswick, Ludowici, and Jesup communities.


Our rescue is not like other shelters. In fact, we are not really a shelter at all!  We specialize specifically in rescuing cats and kittens. Our animals aren’t kept in pens or cages, but raised in homes with children and other animals to give them the best chance of transitioning into their forever homes.

We ensure a full range of veterinarian services are provided. Every cat adopted from our rescue is spayed or neutered before it leaves. Other services include all required immunizations, flea treatments, deworming, and feline disease testing.

Gulf Coast Cocker Spaniel Rescue (Houston, Texas 77242) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) rescue organization specializing in the rescue of Cocker Spaniels.


We are not a shelter. Our rescue process involves finding loving foster homes for all the dogs in our program until their forever home can be found. As you can imagine, we are in constant need of volunteers, foster homes and funding. Any help given in any of these vital areas is greatly appreciated and essential for our efforts to continue.

Hands Helping Paws (Norman, Oklahoma 73070) is a nonprofit incorporated organization aimed at reducing and stabilizing unwanted feral cat populations via trap, neuter/spay and return program in Norman.


Hands Helping Paws is not a rescue shelter, animal abuse hot line, for-profit organization, or cat sanctuary. However, in the process of TNR we run across adoptable strays and/or kittens that we will rescue and put into foster care. Once they are socialized and a certification of clean health they are put up for adoption for a “Forever Loving Home.”

The Humane Society of Calvert County (Sunderland, Maryland 20689) is a strong community resource and partner, which promotes compassion toward and the humane treatment of animals, by advocating the responsible ownership of companion animals.


HSCC improves our community for animals and people by: sheltering and protecting animals from harm; placing them into caring, responsible homes; increase awareness through humane education and community outreach; endeavoring to reduce animal over population and to eliminate cruelty; serving as an advocate for animals by promoting humane standards; and enhancing the relationship between animals and people.

Wolf Rock Animal Health Center (Exeter, Rhode Island 02822) is a well-equipped modern veterinary hospital that offers general medicine, surgery, and preventative health services for companion animals. In addition, we offer alternative treatment options. These include a holistic approach, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal therapies, nutritional consultations, and animal chiropractic. We are offering these alternatives in order to expand our ability to treat medical conditions and to help you maintain your pets in the best of health.


Each patient is treated as an individual, and a treatment plan is developed according to the needs of the patient and the wishes of its caretaker.

When appropriate, alternative therapies such as acupuncture, animal chiropractic, physical therapy, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies and homeopathy are suggested, in order to help the body heal without the use of chemicals and surgery. Surgical care, dentistry, radiology, preventative care and general medicine are also available when needed.

Friends of Animals Humane Society (Cloquet, Minnesota 55720) is dedicated to providing care and treatment to the dogs and cats in the areas surrounding Cloquet.


FOA strives daily to help them in times of need, and to improve their lives by finding them their forever homes.

The mission of New Mexico Animal Friends (Albuquerque, New Mexico 87196) is to:

  • Rescue homeless dogs and cats and provide temporary quality care for them in foster homes until permament adoptive homes can be found
  • Promote animal welfare through educational efforts and other services
  • Reduce overpopulation in companion animals and feral cats through spay-neuter services



NMAF does not euthanize healthy animals except in cases of severe and untreatable medical or behavioral problems. Once a dog or cat is in NMAF’s system, they do as much as possible to ensure that it finds a loving home and that its medical and behavioral needs are met.

The Heart of America Humane Society (Overland Park, Kansas 66282) is a 100% volunteer organization working to find good homes for animals. We do not have a shelter of our own but we have created a cooperative partnership with the Lee’s Summit Municipal Animal Shelter in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Without a facility or paid staff, Heart of America Humane Society relies on its all-volunteer network of caring individuals to carry out its mission.


Many of our animals are cared for temporarily in volunteer foster homes. This gives us the ability to build a history with them, observing and evaluating their behavior and traits outside of an intimidating shelter environment. That foster knowledge helps create a better match between an animal’s personality and the home situation of a new owner. You can view animals available for adoption on our web site, or meet them in person at our Saturday Adoption Events.

The Last Post (Falls Village, Connecticut 06031) was founded by Pegeen Fitzgerald, a New York radio personality, advertising executive, author and animal advocate. Its primary purpose is to provide a safe, homelike surrounding for animals whose previous owners have died or gone into nursing homes.


Animals are left to the Last Post in wills, or special arrangements are made by contacting our Business Manager.

The Last Post has been in operation since 1982, and currently is home to more than 200 cats, several dogs, and a pair of pigs, as well as a goat.

Many of the cats are available for adoption and all are kept up to date with vaccinations and medical examinations.
