We sadly report the passing of sweet Sponsor cat, Rhett, who passed away peacefully at a medical center near his home.
Rhett joined the Sponsor Program in 2008. He was a beautiful 8-year-old black cat that, unfortunately, was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus. With insulin injections and a special diet, we were able to give Rhett the best quality of life possible.
We were so happy when Jahna took him home in May 2010. Although Jahna is heartbroken at her loss, she cherished this very special and loving cat for close to 4 years. And she is so thankful to all of you who sponsored Rhett.
All of us at Animal League America extend our condolences to Jahna and to Rhett’s sponsors, whose generosity enable us to give animals with special needs the lifelong care they need. Thank you for all you do and will continue to do.
We are so saddened to report the passing of Sponsor dog, Charley. This precious dog passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his loving family. Charley was comfortable and laid to rest without any suffering.
We warmly welcomed one-and-a-half year old Charley into the Sponsor Program in 2005. He suffered from paralysis in his hind legs from a severe spinal cord virus that could have taken his life. With the proper vaccinations and medical treatment, Charley was given the life he deserved. Despite his lack of mobility, Charley would always have his tail wagging and was such a sweetheart. His family and especially his human sister, Christina, would shower him with hugs and kisses. He brought so much happiness to the family that misses him deeply.
Although they are heartbroken at their loss, Charley’s family told us they are very grateful to have had so many memorable years with this special dog. They are so thankful to all of you who sponsored him. For those who sponsored Charley, we will select a new sponsor pet for you to love like your own. Remember, Charley had a wonderful life because of you – thank you.
O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou? What a handsome cat!
Meet Romeo. We rescued this sweet, adorable two-year-old domestic short hair cat from a home in upstate New York along with many other felines after their owner could no longer care for them. After being examined here at North Shore Animal League America, our veterinarians determined that Romeo’s recurring ear infections were the result of a cancerous growth, called Ceruminous Adenocarcinoma, inside one of his ears. The good news: The tumor had not spread elsewhere, and we gave Romeo the surgery he needed to completely remove the tumor. Now on the mend, Romeo is expected to make a full recovery with almost no hearing loss. We were so happy when he was adopted and taken him home to live with a wonderful woman who is just thrilled to have Romeo as her companion. Romeo runs around the home and enjoys sitting with his human mother to watch TV.
Chachi looking cute and curious!
Coco, recently renamed Chachi by his adopted family, is an adorable six-month-old terrier mix
Mutt-i-grees®. He was rescued from an overcrowded California municipal shelter in October 2013. Coco would have been euthanized if he wasn’t brought to the safety of our NO-KILL campus. This precious puppy suffers from incontinence and bowel trouble, which a neurologist determined was most likely due to an injury rather than a congenital defect. Because of this bowel trouble, he can’t fully empty his bladder, which would lead to him having occasional small accidents. Coco has to wear diapers, but on the bright side, they don’t seem to bother him at all! Simply by rubbing his stomach, his bowels are able to move. These issues will not prevent Coco from having a full, happy and healthy life, but he will require lifelong care.
We were delighted when Coco was adopted into a family. The most recent update from his human dad is that he is doing great! Coco is fun, inquisitive, mischievous, and happy. He gets along really well with his brother (4 year old dog named Fleetwood) and is a joy to be around. His human parents are super people and have the knack for changing his diaper, which is done a few times a day.
With the help of our generous monthly Sponsors, we welcome Coco with open arms and will continue to provide him with a wonderful life.
Karina is a happy dog now!
We warmly welcomed, Karina, an adult Shihtzu rescued from a puppy mill this past January. It broke our hearts to hear that Karina was cruelly forced to birth litter after litter until she was almost barren. Unfortunately, in these mills, the health, happiness and well-being of the animals is of no concern which sadly resulted in Karina developing diabetes and becoming blind. We were so happy to have rescued Karina from these terrible conditions.
Through a special diet and two daily insulin injections, her diabetes is manageable. With her horrific puppy mill past behind her, Karina is now being tenderly cared for by her Foster Mother Maria until the right adopter takes her home to be forever cherished. With the help of our generous Sponsors, Karina will live out the rest of her days as healthy and happy as possible. SPONSOR ME!
Just laying around!
Karina modeling like a pro!
Finally in a save warm home!

Midnight playing it cool with his bright eyes staring right at you
Midnight being dapper as always. Such a handsome cat. He is so grateful to have sponsor donors.
This handsome cat, Midnight, is a wonderful 6 year old domestic short hair cat that came to us in June 2013 after his owner died and his family could no longer care for him. When examined by our Veterinarians he was soon diagnosed with Asthma and food allergies. Midnight quickly adjusted to his inhaler so he can breathe normally and was given a special diet to manage his allergies.
We were so thrilled when the Taffet family adopted Midnight. After a few months, Bob, his human father, reports that Midnight is doing really well. Midnight had a little adjusting to do, his first month was spent hiding under beds during the day and only came out at night to curl up in bed with his human sister. Bob said that despite his obvious craving for companionship, at first it was very difficult for him to allow himself to trust his new humans. That has all changed now. Midnight has taken full run of the house and prowls around at all hours.
The Taffet family also has a cat named Nala, adopted from NSAL. Nala wasnâ€™t too pleased to have Midnight in her home but despite some loud hissing they are actually becoming interest in each other and may be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Midnight’s health is good. For the most part, his digestive issues seem to be managed by his special diet. His asthma is still present for which his adopted parents give him an inhaler every other day. Despite his skittishness, all in all, Midnight is an incredibly sweet and cuddly kitty who loves to hang out with anyone, loves to look out the window, and craves a good long scratch behind the ear.

Xena does enjoy being active, however, she loves to cuddle up! The natural sunlight is a nice way to feel the warmth in the winter months. She can’t wait until the warm weather comes so she can play outside.

Nothing better than having friends especially for a special dog like Toby. She is one devoted pup to her mom Carolyn and brings joy to everyone around her!
