Kitty Angel, Inc.
Kitty Angels is a no-kill shelter that serves the Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire areas and is dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned cats, furnishing them with treatment for injuries or other health problems, and placing them into life-long, loving homes with compatible owners. We take all necessary steps to ensure the well-being of our cats, including screening for infectious diseases, spaying and neutering, and providing rabies, distemper and other necessary vaccinations. As a general policy, Kitty Angels sets no limits on the amount of veterinary care which it will provide to a sick or injured cat to return it to a state of good health prior to placing it in a good home.

Akita Rescue Society of America
ARSA (Akita Rescue Society of America, Inc.) was founded in 1976 by a small group of Akita fanciers who recognized the need to assist abandoned Akitas. As the breed became more popular, the number of abandoned Akitas grew proportionately. Now, Akitas can be found in most shelters and humane societies throughout the country where they meet the fate of other abandoned dogs--death.

Sadly, there are too many Akitas to save them all. Today, education with a goal toward prevention is the only hope for Akitas. As a 23-year veteran with ARSA, I'm bringing to the electronic age our most requested information sheets along with information on health, diseases, and lots more. Hopefully this site will benefit the wonderful Akita breed.

Feline Friends works with the homeless cat population, rescuing stray and abandoned cats/kittens, furnishings them with medical treatment and placing them into life long homes with compatible owners.

North East Rottweiler Rescue & Referral, Inc.
North East Rottweiler Rescue & Referral, Inc. was established by Dale Green Young, Denise Muccioli and MaryAnn Grim in February 1998. Dale and Denise had been receiving many phone calls from shelters and Rottweiler owners who were looking to find good homes for unwanted Rottweilers. Dale and Denise realized there were very few people in New England willing to go into shelters to evaluate Rottweilers for placement. The large volume of phone calls demonstrated a tremendous need for an organized Rottweiler Rescue in the Northeast.

North East Rottweiler Rescue and Referral Inc. extends its services to animal shelters, veterinary hospitals and the general public in an effort to raise public awareness of responsible Rottweiler ownership. NERR&R rescues unwanted and abandoned Rottweiler dogs and places them into appropriate, permanent homes. NERR&R promotes responsible ownership by providing free educational services. These services include pre-purchase counseling, behavior consultations and evaluations, as well as breeder, trainer and insurance referrals.

Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society
The MRFRS is a nationally recognized, nonprofit volunteer organization committed to ensuring the health and welfare of feral and domestic cats and kittens by promoting pro-active, compassionate, no-kill programs.

All our cats are spayed or neutered, inoculated against rabies and distemper, and given a thorough veterinary checkup before being released through any of our programs.
