Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation helps homeless pets find their way to loving homes through rescue and adoption. The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) was incorporated as a 501c3 not-for-profit organization in 2001 when Pam McAlwee and Ross Underwood, a couple of Arlington, VA restaurant owners, decided to formalize their efforts to save homeless pets in their community. They purchased 63 acres of land in Sumerduck VA and began building The Lost Dog Ranch, a kennel facility for homeless pets with plenty of outdoor space for dogs to run and a cage-free building for cats. Since 2001, LDCRF has saved the lives of more than 40,000 homeless pets, most of whom were facing the threat of euthanasia at over-crowded municipal shelters. Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation is overwhelmingly a volunteer-run organization with a small paid staff providing direct care to animals at the Lost Dog & Cat ‘Rescue Care Center’ facility located in Falls Church, Virginia. Many other animals are cared for in our network of volunteer foster homes, and some cats are housed at Petsmart Cat Adoption Centers. Every weekend, LDCRF holds off-site adoption events at local PetSmart and PetCo stores and places more than 2,000 dogs and cats per year for adoption. LDCRF was founded with the belief that through an open, friendly adoption process, we could match great people with homeless pets and send those pets to their new homes without unnecessary barriers. To that end, we have done same day adoptions with two-week trial periods since 2001, and continue to look for ways to remove barriers that prevent adoptions. We also believe that a rescued pet is a spayed or neutered pet, with no exceptions other than life-threatening medical conditions. We are very proud that every pet adopted through LDCRF since 2001 has been spayed or neutered prior to being placed in the hands of the adoptive family. LDCRF makes a lifetime commitment to the animals we rescue and will always accept those animals back into our care should the need arise.

Elizabeth Morris began housing and caring for animals in Philadelphia in 1858. Founded in 1874, the Morris Animal Refuge is a pioneer in Animal Welfare. The Philadelphia-based life-saving organization is committed to adoption, education, and high-quality care with the goal of finding positive and humane outcomes for animals in need. Morris Animal Refuge provides care for a wide range of animals, from those ready for placement in a new home to those exhibiting behavioral or medical issues that aren’t able to immediately be placed. We are dedicated to helping find a positive and humane outcome for every animal that comes to us in need, reducing unnecessary euthanasia, and ensuring that every animal that enters our care is given a chance at a loving home. Our hard work has paid off - and today we are happy to report that we have a 98% Save Rate! Morris Animal Refuge is committed to taking in any animal in need that we can humanely care for. As a managed admission shelter, we do surrenders by appointment only to allow us to better manage the flow of animals to avoid unnecessary euthanasia and to plan the necessary time needed with each owner to get the most information they can about the animal. We will also work with the owner to help them find alternatives to surrender – for example – giving them information on low-cost food resources, low-cost medical care, alternative pet-friendly housing, etc. As a life-saving organization, Morris Animal Refuge is committed to the mission of finding forever homes for all adoptable animals. Morris Animal Refuge seeks to expand the definition of what animals are considered to be "adoptable" and to support other shelters and rescue organizations by transferring in animals. Throughout the history of animal sheltering, only young, perfectly healthy animals with no recognized behavioral issues were considered suitable for adoption. We’ve turned to an adoption counseling method, which focuses on finding the best fit between adopter and animal, and we've begun to build resources for medical care and behavioral rehabilitation through our Life Saver Fund. Through these changes, we’ve found more homes for animals with chronic medical conditions or behavioral issues that require consistent training. As the Refuge has been able to adopt out more animals efficiently, we've had the ability to begin transferring in medical and behavioral cases from local and out-of-state rescue partners. We seek to support the larger mission of animal welfare, not only throughout our city and state, but throughout the country.

This means, in many places around our country, more than half of the animals in shelters are put to death.

MRFRS (Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society) began in 1992 as a few caring souls who decided to come to the aid of the 300+ free-roaming cats barely surviving along the Newburyport, Massachusetts waterfront. The effort our founders launched was one of the first in the nation to use Trap-Neuter-Return to improve the lives of free-roaming cats. Once all of the cats had been trapped and fixed, we fed them twice a day at waterfront feeding stations and monitored them for illness, injury, and any new additions. Those cats that showed an ability to be socialized were taken into foster care and adopters found. Thanks to that work, the final cat in the waterfront colonies, “Zorro,” passed away of old age in 2009. Since our inception, the MRFRS has assisted over 133,000 cats — placing over 23,000 cats and kittens into homes, spaying or neutering over 14,000 feral cats at our TNR clinics, and over 68,000 cats on our Catmobile.

NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) is an initiative led by Best Friends Animal Society that brings together passionate individuals, city shelters and an entire coalition of animal welfare organizations to end the killing of dogs and cats in shelters throughout Los Angeles. Now, Los Angeles, the nation’s second-largest city, is just inches away from achieving no-kill. When Best Friends launched the No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) initiative in 2012, only 56% of the dogs and cats in the city’s shelters were making it out alive. But thanks to the hard work of so many, including the entire NKLA Coalition, Mayor Garcetti, Los Angeles Animal Services, our fabulous local community and devoted volunteers, we are thrilled to announce a sustained save rate of 90.49% for 2020. Led by Best Friends, the NKLA coalition has enhanced life-saving through client-service driven, high volume adoptions at the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center and NKLA Pet Adoption Center, as well as large scale adoption events; high-profile and comprehensive marketing campaigns and strategic, community-based low-cost spay/services. Best Friends is taking this collaborative model and expanding it nationwide, leading an effort to take the country to no kill by 2025. And LA is proof that we can accomplish this with the support of shelters, rescue groups and communities across the United States. Join us and help make L.A. a no-kill city. Together, we can Save Them All®.

Established in 1976 by Cindi Shapiro and her siblings — Randi Cohen and Don Shapiro — Northeast Animal Shelter is one of New England’s largest animal adoption centers. In 1994, Northeast Animal Shelter implemented a robust animal relocation program — one of the first of its kind — to help reduce the nation’s overpopulation problem at local animal shelters across the country. Since its inception, Northeast Animal Shelter has transported over 125,000 cats and dogs to New England — where the demand for adoptable pets is high — and placed them in homes. Northeast Animal Shelter aims to help as many animals, and people, as possible by providing humane care and resources for homeless and owned pets in need. Each year, the shelter’s animal relocation program transports thousands of cats and dogs from overpopulated animal shelters across the country to Massachusetts, where each animal receives medical care, enrichment, and behavior training prior to adoption. We also promote compassion for all animals through our community programs and partnerships, which focus on strengthening the human-animal bond to keep people and pets together. Northeast Animal Shelter’s affiliation with the MSPCA-Angell presents an opportunity to connect thousands more pets with adopters than either organization could accomplish on their own. NEAS’ animal relocation network, combined with the MSPCA-Angell’s veterinary and adoption center resources, works to protect the largest number of animals possible by serving as New England’s premier destination shelter for the nationally coordinated movement of animals. Our affiliation not only provides hands-on care to homeless animals in need, but we also work together to offer access to affordable care to pet owners through our community veterinary clinics and through our community outreach teams who work directly in Massachusett’s most underserved communities.

National Mill Dog Rescue was established in February 2007, in honor of a forgiving little Italian Greyhound named Lily. Theresa Strader, NMDR’s Founder and Executive Director, rescued Lily from a dog auction in Missouri. Prior to that day, Lily had spent the first seven years of her life as a commercial breeding dog, a puppy mill mom. Determined that her years of living in misery would not be in vain, Strader started NMDR, giving a voice to mill dogs across the country. During her years as a breeding dog, Lily spent all of her days confined to a small, cold wire cage in a dark, foul-smelling barn. Never was she removed from her cage for exercise or socialization. In her dreary confines, Lily was forced to produce one litter after another with no respite. Like all commercial breeding dogs, she was a veritable breeding machine whose worth was measured in only one way – her ability to produce puppies. By seven years of age, Lily was worn out. Commonplace in the industry, she had received little to no veterinary care throughout her life, the result of which, for her, was terribly disturbing. Due to years of no dental care, poor quality food, rabbit bottle watering and no appropriate chew toys, the roof of Lily’s mouth and lower jaw, had rotted away. Her chest was riddled with mammary tumors and she was absolutely terrified of people. Strader brought Lily and twelve others home from the auction and declares that even for a highly seasoned rescuer, the following months were the education of a lifetime in rehabilitation. That she would take up the cause for the mill dogs was never in question and National Mill Dog Rescue was promptly underway. Since 2007, NMDR has been supported by hundreds of volunteers and rescued more than 16,000 dogs. Run almost solely by volunteers, NMDR has pledged to put an end to the cruelty of the puppy mill industry. Through widespread informative efforts, NMDR hopes to educate the public to acquire their companion animals through reputable breeders or, better yet, from shelters and rescue groups across the country. After her rescue, Lily spent the remainder of her life as a beloved member of the Strader family, where she received medical care, warmth and companionship. In time, Lily found courage and her disfigured little body educated countless people about the horrors of the puppy mill industry. Lily died, at home, peacefully, in the arms of her loving dad with her family gathered around, in May 2008, fifteen months after she was rescued.

OPIN continues to help pets and pet guardians beyond Stamford Animal Control as a way to expand our outreach to pets in need.

Oregon Humane Society is the largest animal welfare organization in the Northwest, and adopts more animals from its Portland shelter than any other single-facility shelter on the West Coast. OHS puts no time limits on how long animals remain at the shelter—a pet stays available for adoption for as long as needed to find a loving home. If a pet in the care of OHS needs medical attention, the OHS veterinary hospital provides the pet with the same level of care you would want your own pet to receive. Founded in 1868 by noted humanitarian Thomas Lamb Eliot, OHS is the fourth-oldest humane society in the nation. Eliot initially established OHS to stop the neglect and abuse of draft animals. The mission expanded to include companion animals and, until 1933, orphaned children. The Oregon Humane Society finds homes for more than 11,000 pets each year. The OHS medical team provides free and low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for thousands of pets owned by low-income families OHS educators reach more than 12,000 youths and about 2,000 adults annually through humane education programs. The OHS Second Chance program brings more than 8,000 pets annually to OHS from other shelters around the region. In the state capitol, OHS is the driving force behind efforts to improve laws that protect animals and punish offenders. OHS Humane Special Agents are commissioned by the Oregon State Police to enforce animal cruelty and neglect laws around the state.

On the Wings of Angels Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit, no kill rescue. We rescue dogs that are without homes, whether it be due to fearful behaviors, lack of basic manners, or health issues. Providing the dogs the training, and medical attention they need, we rehabilitate them to be adopted. Our dogs are crate-trained, leash-trained and taught basic manners and obedience before being placed up for adoption. Training plays an extremely important role in the lives of our dogs. The majority of behavioral issues are learned—therefore, if behaviors are learned they can be unlearned, or re-taught by giving clarity and structure rather than have the dog try to figure out what is expected of it on its own. We specialize mainly in dogs that have fear-based issues or need some manners due to high-energy or lack of boundaries. Each of our dogs is assigned to one of our trainers on staff who specialize in different behavioral "issues." The trainer will then construct a training plan for each dog based on individual needs and once a dog completes their training process and is medically cleared, they are then made available for adoption! ​We do not do day of adoptions, rather we do a series of meet and greets. After receiving an adoption questionnaire that we feel would be a good fit for one of our dogs, we will contact the potential adopter to schedule a "meet and greet." During the meet and greets, adopters can ask in-depth questions regarding personality, quirks, health, training, etc. We go over walking, crating, playing, and any obedience the dog may know. The number of meet and greets is dependent on the dog being adopted and whether or not another dog lives in the household. After all human members of the household meet the dog of interest, we then schedule a dog meet and greet where we ensure the dogs get along before they go home. All our dogs go home with a rabies certificate, a copy of their medical records, bathed, nails clipped, ears cleaned, any medications they may be on, and a week's worth of food. We are here to help for the entirety of the dog's life and aim to keep our pets in their homes. If for any reason an adopter is unable to care for their pet anymore, all our dogs always come back to us. We know a lot of rescues will only adopt out locally however, distance is not an issue to us so long as the adopter is willing to make the drive. We have had adopters come from all over the country including Michigan, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and Pennsylvania!
