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.

Dumpster Cats (Kirkwood, Delaware 19708-0219) is an all-volunteer group dedicated to helping homeless kittens and cats. Collectively, we have helped rescue and find homes for over 1,200 kittens and cats and have spayed and neutered over 1,500 cats.


Our mission is to save the lives of cats and kittens by preventing more from being born.  The more kittens that are prevented, the more will live. This is the new millennium. This is the United States. These are civil times we are living in. And yet, every day, shelters are forced to put down young animals simply because there is not enough space, not enough homes and hearts to take them in. Every night, there are homeless animals out on the street. Cold, hungry, and alone, these cats and dogs have done nothing to deserve the conditions which they must endure. These are animals who were neglected, disregarded, tossed out onto the roadside… some were even born into this life… all because no one cared enough to give them a home, to control the pet population, to do SOMETHING to help. Well now, YOU can do something to help! You can become a member, make a donation… or adopt.

Fairy Dogparents (Duxbury, Massachusetts 02332) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps prevent dogs from being surrendered to shelters.



We provide assistance with food, medical and general wellness needs of qualified dog recipients in Massachusetts.

Fairy DogParents is 100% dependent on donations and we cannot guarantee any goods or services for applicants.

All payments go directly to those providing good and services.

If you are faced with the choice of surrendering your dog because of personal financial circumstances you may qualify for our assistance.

Founded in 1990 by Randi Fairbrother, and incorporated as a nonprofit in 1991, Catalyst for Cats, Inc. (Santa Barbara, California) is dedicated to helping stray and feral cats. The organization’s primary goal is to prevent the suffering of cats, and its main strategy is the reduction and control of feral cat populations within Santa Barbara County through its TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) and feeding programs.


You can become a catalyst for change in the lives of feral cats by helping in the following ways:

  1. Spay or neuter your household pet and encourage others to do the same. Our feral cat epidemic is largely the result of unaltered, lost or abandoned cats. We can refer you to low-cost spay/neuter programs.
  2. Report local breeding cat colonies to us and spread the word about our work.
  3. Adopt a rescued cat or kitten.
  4. Become a volunteer. We need fosters to bottle feed and tame kittens, food care persons, neighborhood caretakers, trappers, transporters, and helpers for fundraising.
  5. Make a tax-deductible donation to Catalyst for Cats, Inc. All contributions go directly towards preventing cruelty to animals by addressing the feline over-population problem.

CARMAA (McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania 15136) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that works to reduce the number of homeless animals by supporting adoption and spay/neuter programs, and hosting events for educating both the shelter community and the public on animal welfare issues.


CARMAA’s goal is to serve as an umbrella organization supporting a collective community of compassionate people, advocating every day for homeless animals. Focusing on finding unique ways for shelters and rescue organizations to support each other, CARMAA celebrates a unified cause in the animal community — finding homeless pets their forever homes. CARMAA believes everyone can take part in making a difference, and that people are willing to do the right thing, once they know what it is. Be a part of the solution.

Make a difference. Make a choice. Adopt.
