Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) is one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the country, taking in approximately 35,000 animals each year.  ACC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and is the only open-admissions organization in NYC, meaning they never turn away any homeless, abandoned, injured or sick animal in need of help, including cats, dogs, rabbits, small mammals, reptiles, birds, farm animals and wildlife. ACC is the only organization in NYC with this unique responsibility. 


A Purposeful Rescue is a 501C3 nonprofit that saves dogs from high-kill Los Angeles area shelters. There are many amazing dogs who get overlooked or need a little extra work or care, and A Purposeful Rescue aims to give those dogs a second chance. Knowing that adoption solves only part of the problem of pet overpopulation, this organization focuses heavily on prevention and community outreach. Primarily focused on South Central Los Angeles, A Purposeful Rescue promotes spay-and-neuter education and relies on the hard work and dedication of volunteers.


Baltimore Bully Crew is a grassroots, all-volunteer-based nonprofit organization of responsible pit bull owners and enthusiasts. Its mission is to promote responsible ownership of what used to be “The American Family Dog.”


Bunny World Foundation (BWF) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)3 animal welfare organization founded in 2008 in Los Angeles, California. Set up to promote (Shelter) Equity and Equality for Rabbits, BWF’s mission is to combat animal cruelty, illegal animal sales, exploitation and neglect of all animals through rescue efforts, public education, investigations, legislation, special events, and media attention. BWF works to reduce rabbit overpopulation and to establish rabbits as companion animals that deserve the same individual rights, level of care, and opportunity for longevity as cats and dogs that live as human companions. BWF manages a complex Foster & Adoption Program and rescues 500-700 abandoned and abused domestic rabbits a year.



Humane Society of Boulder Valley protects and enhances the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people. Founded in 1902, this organization provides shelter and care to more than 7,000 animals each year, and 93 percent of these animals are successfully adopted or reunited with their guardians. The group’s behavior modification and shelter medicine programs contribute to this successful adoption rate, and each year they partner with other animal welfare groups to continuously counter animal neglect and cruelty. The Humane Society of Boulder Valley is a private, nonprofit organization that relies on donations from generous supporters.


North Shore Animal League America has saved more than 1,000,000 lives.  As the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization, we understand that a rescue isn’t complete until each animal is placed into a loving home.  Our innovative programs provide education to reduce animal cruelty and advance standards in animal welfare.  We reach across the country, as well as internationally, to rescue animals from overcrowded shelters, unwanted litters, natural disasters and other emergencies and find them permanent, loving homes.
