A fellow designer who contributes to pet charities…..we love it!
PursePal is excited to announce that we have named North Shore Animal League America as the beneficiary of our Paw Print PursePal. NSAL America is the world’s largest no-kill pet rescue and adoption organization. They have been successfully placing homeless pets into loving homes for over 60 years. Over 25,000 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens enter into NSAL’s care each year.
One of the most creative approaches to help pet adoption is NSAL’s Mobile Adoption Center program. Huge 35 foot vans do it all. With four rooms, twenty-seven stainless steel cages and four air conditioning and heating systems, these vans literally bring pets to people who can’t come to the League for adoption. Neighborhood sites and times are publicized regularly in newspaper ads in the tri-state area and on their website. And in keeping with their spirit of being truly a national presence for pets in the United States, NSAL regularly shares these huge mobile coaches with other shelters, allowing them to create similar mobile programs of their own — but with their own pets, their own locations, and their own adoption standards. NSAL’s ‘Tour For Life’ is a cooperative adoption event that travels throughout the U.S. and works with over 100 animal organizations to help find homes for their resident pets. In 2005, The NSAL took this program to the international level, adding stops in Canada and the U.K. Television’s Judge Judy is the international spokesperson for Tour For Life 2005. Additionally, NSAL’s International Pet Adoptathon weekend takes place in late April / early May in thousands of animal shelters around the world.
