Animal Defenders of Westchester

Animal Defenders of Westchester began in 2002 and is a registered 501c3 charitable organization. Our goal, very simply put, is to raise awareness about animal abuse and exploitation in and around Westchester County, NY: to point out that the elephant standing on her head and walking in circles on a hot day with ten children on her back, isn't a block of wood-but rather, a living, feeling sentient being who deserves better. We advocate on all animal protection and exploitation issues, including experimentation, factory farming, rodeos, breeders and traveling animal acts.

Bronx - Westchester Cat Coalition

Bronx - Westchester Cat Coalition is a group of local women trying to help homeless cats in our area. Many of the cats we have rescued were abandoned when people moved or died; others were family pets who somehow found their way onto the streets. Our goal is to find these cats homes to avoid them going into the shelter system where their fates would be uncertain.

Every cat we rescue is first taken to our vet for examination, spay/neuter, deworming, etc. Any other medical condition a cat may have is treated at our expense. We evaluate each cat's temperament and foster the cats ourselves while they are awaiting adoption. *Important note

Care N Compassion Canine Rescue

Care N Compassion Canine Rescue is a small, family-run rescue effort that was started after our beloved family dog of 11 years died. When we started looking to adopt another dog, we were amazed at how many dogs have so little time to be adopted before being euthanized due to overcrowded, small municipal shelters. Our mission at Care N Compassion Canine Rescue is to do all we can to help dogs who can't stay with their owners and would otherwise end up in a shelter. We can only help a few at a time, but we feel it is very rewarding work. Several volunteers help with transporting dogs, fostering, publicizing our dogs, and dog walking. We are grateful for their help. *Important note

Centerline Stables

Centerline Stables partners with Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary, a Connecticut-based organization, to bring horses from Canada for adoption in the local region. Many of the foals and horses come from operations that collect urine from pregnant mares for the production of estrogen for menopause therapies. Wyeth Pharmaceuticals extracts estrogen from the urine to manufacture Premarin and related drugs. Sadly, foals that are born as part of this process are considered a disposal byproduct by the medical industry. Centerline, mostly a dressage barn, takes in rescued horses and fosters as many as four at a time. After a full training regime, the horses are available for adoption. *Important note

For the Love of Animals

For the Love of Animals (FLOA) is an all volunteer organization comprised of people who are compelled to right a wrong that has been inflicted upon innocent animals by inhumane people. Our story is a long one. It goes back 15 years and starts with Jamie and Alan Turell, who opened their hearts and home to abandoned animals on a crisis basis. Animals found on highways, in dumpsters, tied to trees and stoned, hiding in dangerous areas, all abused and abandoned, suffering the worst miseries you could imagine! Over the years, they realized that abandonment is a never ending problem that only seems to get worse. Through their 24/7, 365 days a year dedication, hundreds of dogs and cats were helped and placed in permanent loving homes. A wonderful part of this "labor of love" was meeting similar, incredibly caring people also dedicated to helping abandoned animals survive. Together, they all network to find proper placement and care for the animals. We strongly believe in the strength of education as a tool for change and our program,Wags and Whiskers, educates young children in the joys and responsibilities of animals as companions. *Important note

Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers (HEART)

HEART was incorporated as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization in November 2001. Our mission is to inspire and empower educators to implement Humane Education into school curricula and programs. HEART's vision of Humane Education is broad in that it calls us to question and examine our cultural assumptions regarding the inherent value of all species and nature, helps us explore our responsibility towards the earth and other living beings, and enables us to connect our daily choices with their global impact.

HEART is dedicated to helping schools comply with Humane Education laws currently in existence in New York State. These laws include: 1) Section 809, enacted in 1947, which requires publicly-funded elementary schools to provide instruction in the humane treatment and protection of animals (the majority of educators in New York State are not aware that Section 809 exists); and 2) the more recently passed Project SAVE legislation (Safe Schools Against Violence in Education Act), which calls for instruction in character education in grades K through 12.

Rescue For Love

Rescue For Love is dedicated to helping homeless dogs and helping them find their way back into forever homes. Millions of dogs are euthanized each year, while wonderful healthy purebreds, designer dogs, mixed breeds, pups and dogs are longing for a family to call their own again. Rescues and the adoptive homes recognize this epidemic and we can put a large dent in the euthanized dog population together by aiding those left behind on the streets, in shelters and those seized for abuse.

Our rescue is not a shelter. It is a group of individuals who are fostering in our homes. (If you would like to be a foster home, please contact us.) We believe that providing our foster dogs with a family environment, - which includes crating, leash walking, house training, socialization and affection - we can better prepare the dogs to enter into most any home. In home fostering allows us the opportunity to address any issues of concern and to seek the right environment for each rescue We want to place each dog with the perfect match, so that owner and dog will have a positive and happy life together. We are located in Upper Westchester/ Putnam. *Important note

*Important note- Although most shelters are trying to do their best for the animals they take in, shelters can be severely overcrowded due the number of animals that are surrendered to them. Before relinquishing an animal, BE SURE TO VIEW THE ENTIRE FACILITY in order to avoid placing your pet in an unsafe situation.
