New Leash on Life Rescue Foundation (Newhall, California 91321) was established in 1997 as a 501 c3 nonprofit with a mission to rescue homeless dogs from Los Angeles City and County shelters, rehabilitate them medically or behaviorally and re-home them with forever families. New Leash On Life has a rich history in the community and the rescue and animal welfare industry such as spay and neuter for thousands of pets, rescue and re-home of over 5,000 dogs and providing programs and events to educate and train adults and children of the community on responsible pet ownership. Since 2002 we’ve operated on a beautiful 13-acre property with focus on our mission to save dogs and help people and actively support and contribute to the greater solution.
Since 2005 our Lend A Paw program has trained volunteer handler & therapy dog teams to visit facilities and provide Canine Assisted Therapy for individuals experiencing physical, mental, emotional or life challenges in care facilities, schools for children with special needs, child custody court, abused women’s shelters, missions and veteran groups. The teams also participate in our own P.E.T.S. program which hosts field trips from schools to our facility for children to interact and participate in Canine Assisted Reading Enhancement for improved reading skills.
Our support efforts also extend to Search & Rescue disaster relief missions throughout the nation including Hurricanes Gustov, Katrina, Rita and the wildfires of Southern California.

Contented Critters is a no-kill animal sanctuary located in Makinen, Minnesota.
We are a volunteer-run organization dedicated to the rescue, care, and relocation of animals in need. The majority of the animals coming through our doors are dogs and cats. However, no injured creature that is not in another shelter’s contract area is ever turned away. Many of these animals are found abandoned. Some have been rescued from bad situations and some were simply dropped off by owners who can no longer care for them.
Regardless of breed, age or situation, we provide these animals with appropriate veterinary care and keep them happy and healthy until suitable loving homes can be found for them.

A.R.T N Paws Animal Rescue (Murrieta, California 92563) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) no-kill dog rescue organization.
We rescue stray dogs from the streets, and from situations of abuse and neglect. Additionally, we rescue many of our dogs from “death row” at kill shelters in CA.
All rescued animals are examined by a veterinarian and given vaccinations.
The dogs are then spayed or neutered, treated for any health problems, and rehabilitated as necessary. Our main goal is to find permanent, loving homes for all the dogs that we rescue.
Since our founding in 2010, we’ve saved over 350 lives, placing them in loving, permanent homes. We work tirelessly with shelters to rescue animals at risk of euthanasia.
We take a multifaceted approach to finding permanent, stable and loving homes for our rescued friends; they are fostered in a home environment, evaluated for temperament, and many receive basic training to make them better companions for the people who will ultimately take them home.

The Cat Association of Topeka (Topeka, Kansas 66604) is a no-kill, non-profit cat shelter that seeks to provide opportunities for adoption of relinquished, stray, and abandoned cats and kittens, and provide a safe alternative environment to care for cats and kittens while they await adoption.
Since C.A.T. is a no-kill shelter, we are limited to the number of cats and kittens that we are able to house. C.A.T. provides shelter for approximately 90-100 felines. The cats we are able to accept are brought to us from a variety of circumstances. Some are relinquished by their owners because of moving, lack of finances, or inability to care for them. Most are stray or abandoned and in need of love and shelter. When space is available, highest priority will be given to those cats and kittens in the most desperate need.

Rainbow Animal Refuge (Lyndora, Pennsylvania 16045) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization made up strictly of volunteers who have a love for animals. Established in 1996, we are dedicated to caring for and placing stray and abandoned animals in Butler County, Pennsylvania. We do not have a free standing building as we rely on individual foster homes to care for our foster animals.
All animals are fostered in our homes until a suitable permanent home is found. They receive veterinary care with the necessary age appropriate vaccinations and are spayed/neutered when approximately 6 months of age. We generate revenue by the means of fundraisers, donations, grants, endowments, memorials, bequests and adoption donations.

Feathered Friends Sanctuary & Rescue (Edgerton, Wisconsin 53534) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in southern Wisconsin. We are committed to providing a safe haven for homeless Parrots living in captivity. Which includes proper veterinary care, nutrition, socialization, physical and mental stimulation, clean spacious living areas, and educated adoption guidelines. Our mission is to give these beautiful and intelligent beings a life worth living. We work solely on private donations and adoption fees. Donations and contributions are always needed and welcome. We believe in QUALITY OF LIFE FOR ALL LIVING BEINGS. If a bird is in constant pain, or deeply distressed with no hope for a better future, we feel it is our duty to do whatever we can to change the situation for the better and stop the suffering. We will do whatever needs to be done to ensure that we accomplish this very important goal.
We don’t profit from placing birds and have no paid staff — everyone associated with Feathered Friends Sanctuary & Rescue is a devoted volunteer. However, in order to maintain our programs and our high standard of avian care, we must require reasonable fees from adopters. Many birds will need our care indefinitely — some for the rest of their lives. Every dollar that Feathered Friends Sanctuary & Rescue brings in is used to promote our mission and provide for birds in need. The adoption fee varies depending on species and is due in full at the time of adoption.
Parrots have become increasingly popular as pets in recent years, and too many of the people who are drawn to their beauty are unaware of the challenges of keeping an animal only a generation or two removed from the wild. Birds are messy, and some can be very loud. Unless purchased from a reputable breeder or bird shop that understands the importance of good health, socialization and proper handling after purchase, problems such as biting can pop up. Birds are also given up when a bird owner marries, or when children arrive, or sometimes because the owner can no longer handle the work involved in keeping such a high-maintenance pet. The long lives of parrots can also leave them vulnerable – with life spans measured in decades, some birds outlive their owners. For all these reasons and many more, too many parrots end up going from home to home before ending up in a place like Feathered Friends Sanctuary & Rescue if they’re lucky or facing euthanasia if they’re not. Few community shelters and humane groups are equipped to handle birds, which makes parrot sanctuaries even more important.
We realize that those who invest in a bird have probably spent a lot of money to purchase the bird, adequate housing and accessories. The initial desire for some people is to get back a return on that investment. Before you place that advertisement, please consider this: your bird may end up being caught in a cycle of continuous instability, abuse or neglect—either physically or mentally. Birds require a great deal of time, patience and understanding. They are extremely intelligent beings, and without attention and social interaction, they can and often do develop psychological problems such as feather plucking and self-mutilation. Once these behaviors have started they cannot always be reversed.
If you have a bird you can no longer care for, please contact us.

Camden County Animal Shelter (Blackwood, New Jersey 08012) fights to reduce the overwhelming stray/unwanted animal population in its county. CCAS is an open admissions shelter and takes in over 6,000 companion animals from 17 municipalities in Camden County every year. In 2004, the Animal Welfare Society of Camden County, which currently runs the Camden County Animal Shelter, took over the shelter’s activities. CCAS now does three major things: provide shelter for stray/unwanted animals, find those animals loving homes, and provide low-cost spay/neuter services.
Ruckus (Animal ID #33788693)
CCAS is an open admissions shelter. Its 40+ full and part-time staff work hard to find loving homes for each and every animal that enters the shelter’s doors. The 2011 Animal Intake and Disposition Survey shows that Camden County performs much better than its surrounding counties.
In addition to taking in animals, CCAS holds a multitude of events every year in order to help those looking to adopt to find the animal of their dreams, be it an adoption event or a full-blown gala. Lastly, CCAS provides Camden County with low-cost spay and neutering options. By providing the service at such a low cost, CCAS hopes to reduce the number of stray/unwanted animals in the county.
