About Our Rescue Group:

PALS Animal Life Savers (PALS) is a 501c3 Non-Profit, no-kill animal shelter staffed by volunteers. We are fully funded by donations and organized fundraisers. We are dedicated to helping homeless cats.
All of our volunteers want to find appropriate homes for the lost, stray, abandoned, abused or surrendered felines. Our animals are currently being housed at the PetSmart Adoption Center in Salem, MA. Although we are located within PetSmart we are funded totally by your donations. The volunteers of PALS Animal Life Savers hold as our foundation the health and welfare of our animals. We are committed to promoting high standards of quality animal care through proper medical treatment, nutrition, exercise, socialization and placement. PALS Animal Life Savers strives to maintain these standards by providing assistance, educational material and/or training for our volunteers and adopters.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
