The volunteers of PALS Animal Life Savers (Danvers, Massachusetts 01923) hold as our foundation the health and welfare of our animals. We are committed to promoting high standards of quality animal care through proper medical treatment, nutrition, exercise, socialization and placement. PALS Animal Life Savers strives to maintain these standards by providing assistance, educational material and/or training for our volunteers and adopters.

PALS Animal Life Savers is a 501(3)(c) non-profit, no-kill animal shelter staffed exclusively by volunteers dedicated to helping homeless cats and kittens find suitable, loving homes. We are fully funded by donations, adoption fees, and organized fundraisers.

PALS Animal Life Savers will, as a no-kill animal shelter, adopt the policies set forth in the No-Kill Declaration published by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). Click here to read the declaration in its entirety.

All of our volunteers want to find appropriate homes for the lost, stray, abandoned, abused or surrendered felines that are rescued by PALS. Our animals are currently being housed at the PALS Adoption Center inside the PetSmart store in Salem, MA.

Friends With Four Paws (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73156) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization formed to rescue animals at the Chickasha Animal Shelter in Oklahoma from imminent death by having mobile adoption locations and providing foster care for dogs and cats. Founded in 1998, we have matched several dogs and cats with their perfect, forever homes, where they otherwise would have been sent to the Rainbow Bridge.


Our program has drastically changed throughout time, as many do. We get our animals from local municipal shelters and from the general public. Once they are in our program, they go to a foster for several weeks, get all of their veterinary work done, and are listed for adoption.

Our transport program allows us to move dogs through our system fairly quickly, which means we are able to save many lives. Our adoptive homes are all over the United States including: Oklahoma, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and even Maine! We LOVE our adopters, fosters and volunteers and would not be able to make the difference we make without them.
