Disaster Relief Update Northeast animal shelter dog
  When tornadoes ravaged areas throughout the South and then struck Massachusetts a few weeks later, we knew shelters in those areas would be overflowing with animals. What would they do with the animals they were caring for before the tornadoes in order to make room for lost pets whose families were looking for them after the tragedy?

Because of loyal friends like you, we were able to raise the transportation funds needed to save hundreds of dogs and cats and bring them to the Shelter, where many have already been adopted by loving families. Thank you to everyone who supported our efforts during these emergencies!
  Winnie's Angels
  When little Winnie wound up at a crowded shelter in South Carolina, the odds were against this Dachshund mix. There wasn't much time to catch the attention of adopting families and, as each day passed, the threat of euthanasia grew. Happily for Winnie, a couple of Northeast Animal Shelter angels stepped in to help. Winnie's angels, one from our Saving Pets Across America initiative and the other from our Foster Program, remind us of the rewards of pet rescue.

Read Winnie's inspiring story and learn how she earned her own wings!
  Lillah's Story
  When Lynne and her 10-year-old son, Nickolas, got permission from their landlord to have a cat, they couldn't wait to get to Northeast Animal Shelter. But how to choose? NEAS staff happily answered Lynne's many questions, but in the end, young Nickolas let his heart guide him. He was drawn directly to an undernourished female cat who seemed equally drawn to him. Now Lynne and Nickolas can't imagine life without Lillah, the little cat who has grown to be a loving, playful, beautiful "diva."

Read how Lillah made Lynne and Nickolas happy adopters.

  So many wonderful pets! Our adopters opened their hearts and shared their personal stories in our Tales of Love contest. No longer lost, discarded or neglected, these rescued dogs and cats now live happily with caring families. And, we learned, the pets are not the only happy ones. These loving animals are making such a difference in the lives of their adoptive families.

We launched the Tails of Love contest in March to find and share these heartwarming stories and received more than 150 entries!

After tallying your votes on six finalists, we're pleased to announce that the overwhelming favorite for the first Tails of Love contest is... Marlowe! Read Marlowe's unforgettable story here.
