At the Manchester Animal Shelter (Manchester, New Hampshire 03102), we believe all animals are deserving of life, respect and care. Our goal is zero-population-growth through spay/neuter programs and services that focus on education, medical care, fostering and adoption.

Sav-R-Cats International, Inc. (Surfside Beach, South Carolina 29575) was founded in 2002 as a non-profit organization whose primary goal is to ensure the protection, safeguarding and humane treatment of cats. To accomplish that goal, we depend entirely on the contributions of cat lovers and caring individuals and groups – and we invite you to join us. You can become a member of Sav-R-Cats International with a tax-free contribution of as little as $25.

Sav-R-Cats is run by volunteers who care about helping our feline friends. We run an adoption center, located in Surfside Beach, SC, feed and care for numerous feral colonies and practice TNR (trap-neuter-return) for feral cats in the community. We believe in the practice of spaying and neutering cats as soon as they are at the proper weight (and that they are healthy enough) to prevent the birth of unwanted kittens. Together we can make a change.

Too often, cats are abused, left to fend for themselves and are abandoned. All animals, especially cats, need careful handling, proper diet and tender loving care. Cats that are brought into our shelter must receive the same the treatment and respect as domesticated pets of all kinds. Feral cats, who live in colonies, receive daily feeding from volunteers and loving care every day of the year.

We are dedicated to ensuring that all cats are treated humanely and given a chance to live – to brighten a child’s smile and bring companionship and comfort to someone who needs it! We have cats available for adoption at our center and in foster homes and are always in need of volunteers to help at the center, assist with the TNR program and help with fundraising.

The AWLFC was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2001. What began as a grassroots group of concerned animal lovers has grown into the county’s largest all-volunteer, no-kill animal rescue and welfare organization. In October 2009, the AWLFC opened our first adoption center and office at 1202 East Patrick Street, Suite 13A, in Frederick, MD. This office serves as the headquarters for all AWLFC activities, including cat and dog adoptions, our monthly spay/neuter clinic, education and training sessions, and fund-raising events.

Our philosophy is that every animal deserves a loving home, and that euthanasia is neither an acceptable nor humane form of managing animal populations.

The Milo Foundation (Point Richmond, California 94801) was named after an Australian Shepherd. Milo was five weeks old when Lynne Tingle discovered that her puppy was both deaf and blind. Despite concerns from friends and family, Lynne was determined to give Milo a good life.

It was a learning process for both Milo and Lynne, his “seeing eye person.” Lynne developed a series of taps to communicate with Milo. A tap on the left or right flank would instruct Milo which direction to go. And a tap on the rear meant ‘stop.’ In the park, Milo’s feet read the ground like Braille, where he bounded around in circles with his nose in the air, barking with joy.

Given a chance to live, Milo became a happy, beloved dog. The experience with Milo led Lynne to learn about other animals who needed a chance – abandoned and stray dogs and cats who fill city shelters – which led to the founding of the sanctuary in August of 1994: The Milo Foundation.

After a full and happy life, Milo passed away in August of 1998. He was the perfect spirit and namesake for a sanctuary dedicated to saving the lives of creatures who deserved, like Milo, a chance at a good life.

Contented Critters is a no-kill animal sanctuary located in Makinen, Minnesota.

contentedcritters-mn

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.

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.

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.
