Nebraska’s Animal Loving Advocates Rescues 96 Dogs and Cats Just in Time for Christmas
Nebraska’s Animal Loving Advocates (NALA, www.nalarescue.org) saved 96 animals in December—just in time for Christmas. Over the course of a week, Founder Angie Hospodka and volunteers provided shelter, medical coverage, nutrition, and love to these desperate animals and will work to find them safe, forever homes. Nearly 70 of the dogs and cats came from an Arkansas-based organization that was overwhelmed in the wake of the closure of a humane shelter in the area, and NALA agreed to help out. The Omaha-based NALA rescue organization saves animals from across the country and could not exist without the tireless efforts of volunteers and the generous contributions from donors, as NALA has 80 volunteers and no paid employees.
The mission of Nebraska’s Animal Loving Advocates is to revolutionize the way people think about animals and animal rescue. NALA educates people about the dangers of puppy mills and the realities of backyard breeders, in their effort to provide loving homes to all the dogs and cats they encounter, including the feral, the unwanted, the damaged, and the lost. NALA believes that every living creature not only deserves love but also has so much love to offer in return. NALA approaches this mission through their core values of love for all living things and faith that our culture can change, and together we can create a world where rescues are no longer needed.
