ASL is in its 64th year of operation. The nonprofit organization re-homes cats, dogs and small pets of all ages from shelters, those who are former strays as well as dogs and cats who are surrendered to the organization from former owners who can no longer care for them. Volunteers and rescue staff work to match cats and dogs with area homes; promote spay/neuter programs; provide counseling services on options available to guardians struggling to care for their current pets; provide services to increase the likelihood of healthy, lifelong relationships between pets and their guardians; and assess situations related to animals in need providing assistance whenever able.
