Impact Report 2022


Dear Friends of The NOAH Center,

We are thrilled to share the incredible accomplishments of The NOAH Center in 2023, made possible by your unwavering support and dedication. Your generosity and compassion have helped us create a profound difference in the lives of countless needy animals.

Thanks to our local community’s strong support, we transferred x,xxx dogs and cats from overburdened partner shelters, where they faced the unfortunate possibility of euthanasia due to lack of space. Instead, we matched them with loving forever homes, providing them a second chance at life.

Among these heartwarming adoptions, x,xxx were neonatal puppies and kittens saved and nurtured through our Foster Program. Your support ensured these fragile little lives were given the care and attention they needed to thrive.

In addition, our in-house Spay & Neuter Clinic performed an astounding xx,xxx spay and neuter surgeries, including xx adult cats, dogs, and their xxx babies through our Mom’s Last Litter program. By focusing on preventing overpopulation, these efforts have significantly reduced pet homelessness and promoted responsible pet ownership.

We want to express our deepest gratitude to every member of our community who has stood by our side and contributed to these remarkable achievements. Without your support, none of this would have been possible. Your commitment to our cause has touched the lives of many needy animals, and we are incredibly grateful.

We invite you to delve into our complete Impact Report for 2023, where you will find further details about the inspiring work The NOAH Center has accomplished with your support. As we reflect on this year’s successes, we eagerly anticipate the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in 2024.
