About north shore animal league america
Located on the shores of Lake George, Warren County is home to approximately 66,000 residents. It is also the site of one of our newest and most exciting projects, the North Country Initiative (NCI), launched in September 2015. Working with the NCI team, we’ve developed a holistic program to address the complex problem of feline overpopulation in ways that are humane, educational, and lasting.
“We not only have a no-kill rescue and adoption facility for felines,” says Senior Vice President of Operations Joanne Yohannan. “but we also support NCI’s spay/neuter initiatives to ‘plug the flood’ of new litters and also conduct local adoption events with NCI and other Warren County rescue groups.” Equally important, says Joanne, are efforts to implement a series of programs that deal with the immediate needs of feral colonies and the many friendly cats who are ready to begin new lives in good homes.
