PAHS is one of the few humane societies nationwide with no animal shelter. Instead of managing animals inside a shelter, we work to keep animals out of the shelter through humane programs in intervention, advocacy, and education. For a century, our mission has been to alleviate the suffering of animals, increase public sensitivity to animal issues, and elevate the status of animals in our society.

Although we do not operate the local city animal shelter, we do work closely with area shelters to promote adoptions. In addition, we have our own animals available for adoption that are cared for by volunteer foster parents. RCHS is supported by public donations and very modest membership dues.

We serve the Manhattan community, including surrounding counties, by providing a variety of programs. These include educational programs benefiting elementary schools, informational booths and displays at special community events, animal cruelty investigations, spay/neuter/release for feral cats, participation in fairs and events sponsored by national animal welfare organizations to promote responsible pet ownership, and our fostering program. Several fund-raisers are conducted throughout the year as well to benefit homeless animals in the community.

Since our founding in 1936, the CAHS has grown exponentially. Our continued passion to serve both pets and people is exceeded only by the passion of the mid-Michigan community to support us in our mission.

More than 10,000 animals come through our doors each year; all are provided with food, medical care, a safe place to live and plenty of TLC from our staff and volunteers. We couldn’t do it without the generous support of our corporate partners, donation locations, Veterinary friends and more.

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.

In 1938, a handful of concerned citizens recognized the need for a humane organization dedicated to the protection and care of stray, abandoned, and abused animals. They founded the Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island (ARLSRI), establishing themselves as a non-profit organization in 1970, and recently renamed Animal Rescue Rhode Island (ARRI) (Wakefield, Rhode Island 02880).

For many years the shelter was located in a barn with animals cared for by volunteers. In 1969 the recently replaced shelter was built and from here a small staff, supported by passionate, selfless volunteers, worked near miracles caring for hundreds of unwanted animals each year. This work continues from the recently opened new shelter, where ARRI staff ad volunteers will continue to care for approximately 50 cats, 20 dogs, and other small animals, such as guinea pigs, at any given time.

Today, ARRI is respected statewide as one of the few, local no-kill shelters. In addition to its shelter services, ARRI is involved in coordinated efforts with other animal welfare groups to improve the lives of companion animals throughout RI. ARRI’s services to the community continue to grow each year. To meet those needs, ARRI proudly works in conjunction with many other caring organizations in Rhode Island, as well.

Since 2004, Mostly Mutts (Kennesaw, Georgia 30152) has been working to reduce the number of animals euthanized at local shelters in metro Atlanta. We work closely with animal control officers to save adoptable dogs that are often moments away from being put to sleep. Often, these dogs are sick and injured and require rehabilitation. Mostly Mutts provides housing, health care, training, and physical and emotional care to them until they can be placed in a new home. We hold weekly adoption events to help each dog find their “fur-ever home.”

mostlymutts-ga

Mostly Mutts does not take in dogs that are owned, unless under extreme circumstances. We feel that these pets need to be “re-homed,” instead of “rescued.” However, we will offer assistance to owners that need to find new homes for their animals.

Since animal overpopulation continues to be a huge problem in our community, promoting spaying and neutering is another important goal of our organization. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered before they are adopted out, and we encourage all pet owners to help “stop the littering” by having their pets fixed. Not only does it result in a healthier, happier pet, but also a healthier, happier community! You can contact us at info@mostlymutts.org to learn about affordable spay/neuter options.

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.
