About our shelter and values

We advocate for vulnerable animals, providing safety while promoting responsible pet ownership. We uplift both animals and communities.

We are the world's largest animal rescue and adoption organization

Since our inception in 2009, we have saved over 14,000 lives.

A pioneer of the no-kill movement, Amity Animal League USA continues to lead the way with the development of national and international programs that increase adoptions and raise awareness about the plight of homeless animals. We rescue and rehabilitate critically injured pets.
