Help Feed the Neglected and Abandoned Animals

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily to meet their quota to getting free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals.
It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "feed an animal in need" for free. This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising.
Pass it along to people you know. Thanks.

Corporate sponsors? Rescue? 30.Apr.2003 09:36


I don't know anything about this. Do they "euthanize" animals there? (Curious, because many groups that claim to be "caring" for animals are really only killing them or experimenting on them.)

I don't know. Anyone??

the site says the donations go to North Shore Animal League America (25 Davis Avenue Port Washington, NY 11050 516-883-7575 )


It doesn't say they're a no-kill shelter, but they look legitimate. Below is from their About Us page:

For more than 55 years, North Shore Animal League America has worked to make the world a safer, friendlier, healthier place for animals in need. Since 1944, the League has placed more than 800,000 lost or abandoned pets in loving homes. We've performed countless routine and extraordinary medical procedures. And we've taught tens of thousands of caring people to be good friends, companions and caretakers to the pets they've adopted through the League.

Visitors might find it hard to imagine that one of the world's premier animal welfare organizations grew from a hodgepodge of tiny buildings - largely through the support of concerned individuals and corporations. All of our programs are funded entirely by voluntary donations. As the League's capabilities and resources grew, our commitment to helping orphaned pets extended, first nationally, then globally.

Across the United States and around the world, companion animals rely on North Shore Animal League America to represent their interests and provide them with healthier, happier lives. We hope you will share with us the joy we feel for the innocent lives we've already helped save, and take part in our eager anticipation for the untold number of animals still to be adopted in the years to come.

North Shore Animal League America is the largest pet adoption agency in the world.
