Cookie Needs a Home

Cookie was born in early 2009, making her 4 years old as of May 2013. She was in an apartment with a small dog and another cat. She was pregnant with her 4th litter. She was about to be thrown out to have that last litter, because they were tired of her having them. Can you imagine?!? She had her litter of one and now it's her turn to find her furever loving home. She has recovered from being spayed. She has tested negative for feline leukemia and feline aids. She is current on vaccines. She is super cuddly, playful, and happy for any amount of attention. We are calling her our Pecan Sandy Cookie because she's a little nutty and oh so sweet! Don't let this Cookie crumble. Please contact us to learn more about her and consider giving her a furever loving home. To get more information, please contact us online at jjmjohnson27@aol.com.

Adoption Days

Sometimes it is difficult for people who want to adopt an animal to visit a shelter environment, so P.A.L., participates in Adoption Days, provided courtesy of PetSmart, Petco, and Best Friends Animal Care Center. These events bring adoptable animals to local locations, where it is easy for people to meet them. Dogs and Cats & Kittens will be at various Adoption Days. We bring our adorable adoptable animals out to meet prospective adopters at these various locations. Don't miss our upcoming events, click here: www.petadoptleague.org

Who We Are

The Pet Adoption League, (P.A.L.) is a tax-exempt, 501(3)c charity. We are a dedicated volunteer group that gives much needed help to animal shelters, located in lower Westchester County and individual rescue groups In addition P.A.L. helps place animals throughout Westchester with our home to home adoption program. Along with adoptions, P.A.L. also helps with the cost of medical care needed for the animals at the shelter. This volunteer group is the outgrowth of a noble vision in 1996, that a City Shelter could work with volunteers to save rather than kill adoptable animals. We helped change a small municipal animal shelter (which had a euthanasia rate of approx. 70%) to a much more humane facility. As a result of the hard work of volunteers and past Shelter administrator the euthanasia rate had dropped to 10% over the past several years. But our work is far from over. Remember when you adopt from the Pet Adoption League you are truly saving a life -- since many of the animals we help are at animal shelters. Our goal is to match the right pet to the right home. And "Pet Adoption League" provides an adoption kit to all adopters including our Adoptions Follow Up hotline numbers...got questions after you adopt, an adoptions counselor is only a phone call away.

P.A.L gives help to local animal shelters where there is limited space and overcrowding may occur. As a result, euthanasia becomes a very sad reality. So when you choose to adopt through us, you are truly helping to save a life. Please open your hearts and homes and save a life NOW.


Adopting a Friend

A great deal of effort goes into placing these pets in a home where human family members and animals are best suited to each other. While this is not an exact science, it certainly helps give the Shelter Director, staff and volunteers and idea of how best to place the animal in a "forever home". Along with evaluation testing, many of the dogs begin basic obedience lessons, and already know some basic commands.


Adoption Process

All of the animals to be adopted have been vaccinated. The adoption fees vary for puppies/kittens and adult dogs/cats. For more information, please e-mail us at pal_mv@hotmail.com


Please help our orphans!!!

We can ALWAYS use donations of blankets, towels, dog beds, dog chews and toys, as well as cat beds, scratch posts, cat toys, cat litter and treats. The animals greatly appreciate these items, which help give them some small enjoyment and comfort while they wait for their new homes! We also appreciate donations of kitten/puppy milk replacers, baby foods, and puppy/kitten wet and dry foods. Please e-mail us at pal_mv@hotmail.com to arrange for pick-up or drop-off of donated items.

URGENT PLEA - This year we have been hit hard by the unwanted/ stray cat situation. We have rescued many cats from outside situations and are in desperate need of donations to cover spay/neuter efforts. Just $50 will spay/neuter a cat!! With Pet Adoption League your generous donation goes in full directly to help save animals' lives. Pet Adoption League gives animals needed medical attention. Your donations will also be used to spay/neuter animals before they are adopted, and to promote adoption efforts through much needed advertising. Whatever you wish to give - $5, $10, $20 $40 - will help save a dog's or cat's life.
