Heart and Soul

Animal Rescue
of Long Island

Heart and Soul Animal Rescue of Long Island is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) rescue and adoption organization that was founded in 1999. Our mission is to rescue the loving cats and dogs that have been abandoned at kill shelters in New York.

Sadly, in these tough economic times, many people have had to make the difficult decision to surrender a beloved pet because their financial situation left them no other choice. As a result, the kill shelters are overflowing with loving cats and dogs worthy of a fate better than certain death. Heart and Soul Animal Rescue of Long Island recognizes that these animals are deserving of a second chance and to date has removed more than 5000 cats and dogs from kill shelters and adopted almost all of them into loving homes.

While many of the animals we save are healthy and require only love and reassurance, others are in dire need of veterinary care due to a serious illness or the horrible abuse they suffered at the hands of their previous owner. Since Heart and Soul Animal Rescue of Long Island fosters a no-kill philosophy and believes that every life is worth saving, we pay for ALL necessary medical expenses regardless of the cost, disease or age of the animal. Additionally, cats and dogs that are deemed to be unadoptable due to health or other issues are offered the opportunity to spend the remainder of their lives in our private sanctuary.

Heart and Soul of Long Island is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal rescue and adoption organization so your donation is tax deductible. We receive no government funding therefore the animals must depend on the kindness and generosity of people like you, who support our efforts to save their precious lives. While there is always a shortage of money, there is never a shortage of lives to be saved. Every day we struggle to pay for food, litter and medical care. 100% of the donations we receive go directly to care for the animals.
