NALA is a 100% volunteer-based organization steadfast in its commitment to changing the way society thinks about animals, animal rescues, and the impact animals have on humans. We understand the importance of feeling needed and loved, a “connection” if you will. With the help of our Animal Advocates, we are striving to match every animal in need of a home, with people who can provide loving homes where both will enjoy the benefits of this companionship. All our animals have an all-inclusive adoption fee – NALA provides all vaccinations, spay/neutering services, microchipping, and supplies for “trial periods.”
Before our animals are ready for adoption, some have special needs that NALA addresses. When it comes to special needs of cats, NALA’s Animal Advocates provide care for the smallest kittens (those under 1 pound) from the NHS. In our care, these babies are bottle fed and rehabilitated. In addition to the very smallest kittens, we also take felines from NHS that have ringworm. If not for the relationship our volunteers have cultivated with the NHS, these cats would be euthanized. Further, we provide trap and release (TNR) services for feral cats, ensuring that they are vaccinated and spayed/neutered, so they can be returned responsibly to the community. Finally, we provide medical and behavioral support for as many cats as we can financially and physically provide.
Like the services provided to felines, NALAs commitment to canines is much the same! We provide bottle feeding and treatment for canine illnesses and diseases such as parvo, heartworm, distemper, and orthopedic surgery.
From rehoming healthy animals to caring for the sickest of the sick, NALA’s Animal Advocates are committed to working to make life better for animals in the community. This commitment comes with great responsibility and a hefty price tag. So far in 2020, we have found homes for 640 animals and spent over $130,000 on food, medications, surgeries, and other animal needs. In addition to monetary donations, NALA is also in need of more volunteers – from fosters to event attendees to transportation services, we need it all! We hope that someday there will not be a need for services such that NALA provides to the sick, neglected, abused, and unwanted, but until that day, we will be there with open homes, hearts, and arms.
