North Shore Animal League America is the largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization in the world. We are a non-profit organization and since 1944, the League's mission has been saving the lives of pets through adoption, rescue and advocacy initiatives. Every year, the League reaches across the country to rescue, nurture and adopt nearly 20,000 pets into happy and loving homes. Over the years, the League has placed close to 1 million puppies, kittens, cats and dogs into carefully screened homes. North Shore Animal League America seeks an under-graduate or graduate intern majoring in education to assist with our Mutt-i-grees off-site programs.
