January Cause: North Shore Animal League America

January Cause: North Shore Animal League America

To start 2023, we asked our team to let us know the causes that mean the most to them and will be selecting one of their charities each month to make a donation.

This month’s cause, North Shore Animal League America, has been suggested to us by Shinu Chacko, Senior Electrical Estimator. We asked Shinu to let us know what this cause means to him, and this is what he said:

“As a supporter of North Shore Animal League, I am proud to choose them as my cause so they can continue to help provide for the needs of wonderful animals. Whether it’s food, shelter, medical care, or training, every little bit helps to ensure that they have a comfortable and happy life. I know that the staff at North Shore Animal League works tirelessly to provide for the well-being of these animals, and I am honored that we can contribute in some small way.

The animals at North Shore Animal League are truly special creatures, each with their own unique personalities and characteristics. They bring so much joy and love to those who are lucky enough to adopt them, and they deserve nothing but the best. To both the staff and animals at North Shore Animal League: you have my support, and I thank you for bringing so much joy and love into the world.”

A national pioneer in the no-kill shelter movement, North Shore Animal League America is committed to saving and mending the lives of homeless companion animals and educating the public about the joys and responsibilities of rescue. Founded in 1944, they are the largest, most comprehensive no-kill rescue organization in the world, with over 2,000 shelter partners across the country and around the globe. Headquartered in Port Washington, N.Y., they rescue, nurture, and adopt nearly 18,000 pets annually into responsible, loving homes, plus assist in the adoptions of tens of thousands more through our global partnerships. Over the years, they have introduced such lifesaving practices as mobile adoption, puppy mill rescue, national low-cost spay/neuter referral, humane relocation, and most recently, the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum, a humane education program based on social-emotional learning that’s strengthening the human-animal bond for more than 3,000,000 students across North America.
