The SPCA of Wake County (SPCA Wake) helps pets and people in over half of the counties across NC through collaborative partnerships. SPCA Wake is an animal welfare agency headquartered in Raleigh, NC. Donations keep families together, make frontline rescue work possible, and save pets and people in crisis across NC. SPCA Wake is an independent, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization and shelter, Our mission is to transform the lives of pets and people through protection, care, education, and adoption. Our vision is to create a humane community. Funded by charitable support, we provide vital community programs that pick up where local government agencies leave off. For 52 years, we have provided comprehensive support services to companion animals in need with sheltering, care and adoption services. We provide people-focused programs that keep families and pets together, including spay/neuter assistance programs, affordable access to basic pet vaccines and preventative care, delivery of pet food and supplies for home-bound, low-income seniors, professional pet behavior assistance, disaster relief and response efforts, and youth education programs that promote empathy. The SPCA of Wake County operates two separate animal shelters and each facility serves a different purpose. The SPCA Curtis Dail Pet Adoption Center, built in 2003, is located at 200 Petfinder Lane in Raleigh and provides pet adoption, public education, and pet supplies through its on-site retail store. The Adoption Center location does not accept incoming animals. The SPCA Admission Center, built in 1971, at 327 Highway 70 East in Garner, accepts incoming animals from the public by appointment only. We also transfer as many animals as possible from the Wake County Animal Center, as well as other animal sheltering organizations around the area. Limiting intake allows the SPCA to effectively manage its shelter capacity and prevent the euthanasia of homeless animals for reasons such as space or time. The SPCA opened The Saving Lives Spay/Neuter Clinic adjacent to the SPCA Pet Adoption Center in 2009. The clinic provides sterilization surgery for all SPCA animals prior to adoption, as well as pets owned by the public. Because the North Carolina Veterinary Practice Act prevents us from providing services to owned animals, the physical clinic space is leased to a veterinarian who operates the clinic independently, but in collaboration with, the SPCA.

The mission of Southside Animal Shelter is to rescue healthy and treatable dogs and cats at risk of euthanasia, nurture and restore them to happy healthy lives in loving homes, and reserve euthanasia for those animals, in a veterinarian's professional opinion, who are in a state of terminal suffering or have been determined aggressive. Rosie Ellis is shelter founder as well as its Executive Director. From the very first kitten she rescued, she put her heart and soul into rescue. As an industry peer recently said, Rosie was rescuing before ‘rescue’ was even a thing. She has such an incredible connection with animals and never seems to tire or grow weary of working on their behalf. Even to this day, although she has likely been part of rescuing tens of thousands of at-risk dogs and cats, she can’t share a story about animals at the shelter without coming to tears. A longtime resident of Indianapolis’ Southside, Rosie started rescuing stray kittens in her home in 1987 and in 1994 she and her son purchased the property where the shelter current resides. After receiving her 501(c)3 status in 1995 and winning zoning approval, she and her staff starting building what you see today as Rosie’s Southside Animal Shelter. She has always been and continues to be an active member of the rescue and shelter community and works collaboratively with other leaders to reduce the suffering and pain of Indianapolis’ at-risk dog and cat community. Rosie received the Channel 6 Leadership Award for the work she’s done with companion animals, in 2009, Southside Animal Shelter received the Belle Award from WFYI, Planet Soul and Puddlejump Pictures and continues to receive local recognition for her work on behalf of Indianapolis’ animal population. Without fundraising or marketing staff and not having any city contracts, Southside has always depended upon adoption fees, donations from Southside’s wonderful and supportive community as well as and the support of grants. Although Rosie has often donated her own money as well as her time, some years it has been difficult to make ends meet. Somehow though, as Rosie says, “we always find a way and something always comes through… often at just the right time.” Southside has long been a family affair, with Rosie’s husband and son and daughter-in-law as her number one fans. Whether it was their support as board members, with dollars or with in-kind services, the Ellis family has always been standing right beside Rosie in her quest to save as many animals as she could. In addition to the importance of family, longtime staff and volunteers have been critical to Southside’s ability to rescue, rehabilitate and place at risk dogs and cats. Ultimately though, Rosie knows it isn’t just Rosie, her staff or her volunteers that make the most difference, it is instead the entire rescue community that together are making progress and improving the lives of so many. How long will Rosie keep at it? Her answer? “…for as long as the good Lord allows me to walk.”

Street Tails Animal Rescue began in 2001 as a one woman effort to literally save one dog at a time. Initially operating out of her pet store, The Chic Petique, founder Lindsay Condefer spent years pulling and adopting out one dog at a time. In 2010, with the help of friends and supporters, her dream to help even more dogs in need became a reality. The operation blossomed into its own location. Since then, the number of animals STAR has helped find loving homes has grown exponentially. Street Tails Animal Rescue (STAR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping the homeless, unwanted and abandoned dogs in the Philadelphia area. Our goal is to pull local animals out of shelters and find them loving, forever homes. To us, rescue is about saving a life, and each animal’s life, no matter the cost, is worth saving. Since our animals often require extra care and support, covering the costs is our greatest challenge.

The Rescued Dog is a non-profit, all-breed dog rescue in San Diego, CA. We consist of a network of fosters and volunteers dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs in need throughout California and Mexico. We are committed to placing dogs in loving, forever homes and educating adopters on the responsibilities of dog ownership. The Rescued Dog strives to work with local area shelters and other rescue groups to create a better world for homeless pets. The founders of The Rescued Dog forged our bond during our volunteer work together at a local dog rescue. We recognized in each other a mutual respect for our human friends and the dogs we were helping to rescue. When the time came to start our own rescue, our collective mission was clear: save at-risk dogs from high-kill shelters and place them in loving, forever homes for the benefit of the dogs and humans alike. We believe the best way to end pet overpopulation and animal cruelty is a unified front with local shelters, other rescue groups, and the community. While The Rescued Dog is currently a foster-based rescue, our long-term goal is to have a kennel and training facility, which will enable us to increase our number of rescues and take time to train and, if needed, rehabilitate dogs in need. The founders of The Rescued Dog are committed to saving the right dogs for the right people, and offering support and education to ensure a successful forever situation for both our dogs and the humans who adopt them.

Maddie's Fund offers the industry a national voice, important funding opportunities, learning resources and easy access to network connect and share ideas to keep people and pets together. Maddie was a beloved Miniature Schnauzer whose unconditional love, loyalty and spirit inspired a revolution. Dave and Cheryl Duffield founded Maddie's Fund® in 1994 to honor their delightfully feisty dog. While playing together in the living room one evening, they made her a promise: If they ever had any money, they would use it to help companion animals and the people who love them, so they could experience the same joy they had with Maddie. The rest, as they say, is history. Dave and Cheryl made good on that promise after successfully launching several technology companies. In their lifetime, they have given more of their personal wealth to animal welfare than any other individuals. All thanks to Maddie. Achieving a no-kill nation today is not only possible, it’s inevitable. This outcome however did not always seem certain. When we look back at the movement’s start in the 1970s, we can appreciate just how far we’ve come to making no-kill a reality. Conversations held 40 years ago seem absurd today. They centered on the best way to kill shelter animals rather than ways to save them. The generally accepted method was a decompression chamber, the save rate was 12%, and no one wanted to talk about it. Practices and ideas from this time included: killing all females as a method of birth control; death was considered a "kindness"; and minimal veterinary care provided in the shelters. Volunteer programs were rare. Foster care practically nonexistent. And it was believed people with jobs shouldn’t have pets. In fact, the general attitude was the public couldn’t be trusted to adopt pets.

Founded in 1984, Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from an estimated 17 million per year to about 347,000. That means there are still more than 950 dogs and cats killed every day in shelters, just because they don’t have safe places to call home. We are determined to bring the country to no-kill by the year 2025. Working collaboratively with shelters, rescue groups, other organizations and you, we will end the killing and Save Them All. By choosing to adopt a pet from a shelter, you are saving a life.

To Love a Canine Rescue, Inc. (TLC) is a non-profit, all-breed, foster-based dog rescue operating in suburban Philadelphia, PA. Our mission is to rescue and find permanent homes for abandoned, stray and surrendered dogs in order to minimize the needless euthanizing of animals. Our vision is to make the right connections between our rescued dogs and families in order to give our dogs their final, happy, loving homes. TLC strives to be a valuable resource to our community by working with struggling dog owners and by providing education on responsible dog ownership including the importance of spaying/neutering, behavior training, heartworm testing & prevention, and microchip implanting. TLC was born in the spring of 2013 when our eight founding members decided they wanted to combine their collective experience in pet rescue and community service into one organization. We have a mutual passion, and a unified vision, for saving dogs as well as a thirst to educate the community on reducing the number of dogs needing rescue. At TLC, bonding with our dogs is very important. Rather than going to a shelter where they often become depressed and withdrawn, our dogs join us in our warm, comfortable homes where they thrive with attention and love. As soon as dogs arrive in our foster homes, we begin house training when necessary, and work on basic manners. Our dedicated foster families socialize and interact with the dogs to learn their strengths and understand their challenges. It is important to evaluate personality and temperament of our dogs to better facilitate placement in homes in which their needs and the family’s lifestyle and experience are in alignment. Our dogs receive an enormous amount of love and the medical attention necessary to ensure good health. TLC dogs are spayed or neutered, and brought up to date on shots appropriate for their age. They are also microchipped prior to being placed in their new homes. It is our goal to connect devoted families to loving dogs in need of their everlasting home. We believe in being very honest with our potential adopters and we present everything we learn about our rescues in order to make sure we have a successful adoption. Additionally, TLC foster families and associated trainers will work with adoptive families to ensure a smooth transition and help facilitate additional support and training that may be needed to create and maintain a stable and happy home for our dogs. From puppies to seniors, there is a perfect dog out there for everyone. We pride ourselves on making the right connection between dog and family in order to give our dogs their final, joyful, loving home. Ultimately, our wish would be for empty shelters, so no dog is left behind… until they all have a home.

We are an open-intake animal shelter serving 26 municipalities in Southern New Jersey, 19 of which are in Camden County. Although the Voorhees Animal Orphanage serves more than half of Camden County, NJ, we do not receive any operational or financial support from the County. The only income we receive are the monthly fees we receive from the municipalities that we serve, and adoption fees. Otherwise, we rely very heavily upon the generosity of charitable donations to help us meet our budget. We are also an Adoption Center. That means when space allows, we are able to rescue cats & dogs from over-crowded, high-kill shelters and rescues. We work with local, regional and national shelters and rescue groups, saving lives wherever and whenever we can. In 2019 we were able to save the lives of over 1,800 cats and dogs who made their way to our shelter. We have saved over 33,000 lives since our inception in 1988. We do not discriminate against any breed, nor do we turn an animal away due to medical conditions or age. Each and every animal in our shelter receives individual consideration and attention, regardless of the number of animals we may have in our care. We believe that every animal has the right home and family waiting for them. Our goal is to operate to meet or exceed a 90% live release rate (a.k.a., “No-kill”).

Dog Is My CoPilot is a 501(c)3 that transports at-risk animals from overcrowded shelters to adoption centers in other geographic regions where loving families are waiting. Peter E. Rork, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon and lifelong pilot, co-founded the organization in 2012 with the goal of saving as many animal lives as possible. We work collaboratively with city shelters, local animal welfare organizations and individuals in fifteen western states to coordinate transports. We provide our air services at no cost to the shelters and adoption centers with whom we partner. Since our inception, we have helped save the lives of over 16,500 dogs and cats with our transport flights. Every year in the US, approximately 733,000 shelter pets are euthanized because there is no room for them in municipal shelters. We are working to reduce euthanasia rates by transporting animals from overcrowded shelters to adoption centers in other communities where loving homes are waiting to adopt the animals. We fly as many animals as possible in a single flight to maximize efficiency and do not charge partner organizations for our transport services. As opposed to long-distance ground transportation or the red tape of commercial flights, transporting animals by plane is efficient and affordable — just $100 per animal, per flight. Since its founding, we have grown from saving a few hundred lives a year to more than 5,000 annually. Our success is due supporters like you and our dedicated team of shelters, adoption centers, and volunteers. Throughout the year, Dog Is My CoPilot flies animals to safety from overcrowded shelters to adoption centers in other parts of our country. We fly from overcrowded shelters, primarily in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California to destination animal adoption organizations located primarily in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

WAGS is funded and run. WAGS is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is contracted by two cities with a predetermined estimated amount money to care for the pets that would be brought in based on previous year’s data. In fact, the contract spans 3 years. It is not lucrative money but limited monies to care for the cities stray, lost and homeless animals. To point out, there are no extra funds to handle hoarder and puppy mill cases (at least in this contract). Additionally, possibly due to our good reputation, WAGS has already exceeded the number of pets brought to us in the contracted estimated number. Possibly, we have more pets on property than anticipated because we do our best to rehabilitate and care for animals under our roof. We sometimes assume we have more homeless and lost pets because of our philosophy of care. Overall, WAGS cares for about 400 pets on property on any given day. WAGS has many programs to help pets get adopted. Notably, We strive to provide great medical care. To emphasize, we use standard protocols for care of the pets and facility. With this in mind, we pride ourselves on keeping WAGS in clear order and renovate when ever we have the funds to improve a room or two. We have vast volunteer opportunities, sponsorship, and donation options. Also, We are always open to suggestions for improvement and welcome the community in daily.

Founded in 1876, the SPCA Serving Erie County is the second-oldest humane society in the USA. As the view and treatment of animals have changed over time, so too have their efforts. However, their commitment to providing care and compassion to all animals in need has never wavered. In the late 1800s, the organization helped horses and other animals working on the Erie Canal. In the early 1900s, as more animals started living in homes as pets, their work played a more prominent role in the lives of dogs and cats. Today, as their community’s impact on the environment grows, they see more wild animals needing assistance to survive. The SPCA Serving Erie County is a place for animals who, in their greatest time of need, have nowhere else to turn. We invite you to learn more about our organization and how you can help put an end to animal cruelty. The SPCA promises to transform the lives of animals in Erie County, NY and beyond –whether neglected, beaten, starved, abandoned, injured, or unwanted. The SPCA Serving Erie County continues to grow and carry out their mission thanks to loyal, dedicated people. People who know the love and affection of a pet. People who care about homeless animals. People who will not tolerate animal abuse and cruelty.

We know nothing compares to coming home to a wiggle butt or waking up to soft purrs. We want every pet to have the best care, but know it can be hard when vet visits are often only once or twice a year. Our stomachs drop when we don't know if their ear scratching is excessive or if behavior changes are a sign of something more serious. We spend hours finding the best paw wax for winter ice or looking into raw food and multivitamin combos for their long term joint health. Until now, our best option was often going to the emergency vet. Our founders, Eric and Zubin, have been there as pet parents themselves. The idea behind Fuzzy began when Zubin rushed his pup Mo to the emergency vet. After 7 stressful hours, he left with a $2500 bill, only to learn the luxated patella could have been treated at home. Always available via 24/7 Live Vet Chat, our Fuzzy vet team can help with all issues- big or small. Through curated, vet-recommended health supplements and a mobile app that personalizes pet care, help is just a click away.

Karan Dalal and Arnuv Tandon founded PetCode in May 2020, and the origins of the idea were unconventional to say the least. After bouncing ideas off one another at length in a Snapchat group chat, the idea of a QR tag that virtualized pet information surfaced. Karan and Arnuv fell in love with the concept, and expanded it to incorporate a suite of features that assuage the difficulties of pet management. Our team has been working tirelessly for the past 8 months to build PetCode, and we’re ecstatic to finally introduce this ultimate, all-in-one pet management system. Our passionate high school team hails from across North America and is composed of skilled, passionate individuals committed to bringing users the best experience possible.
