Kind Samaritans found Piper, a tiny kitten, all alone and struggling to walk. They brought her to the ARL help. Piper needed a $2,000 surgery to repair her badly broken back leg.

Animals with serious injuries and medical issues come to ARL shelters every day.

They have no one to pay for their treatment, surgery, or rehabilitation.

Only with your support can animals like get the medical care they need to recover and have a chance at a better life.

The ARL receives no government or public funding and relies entirely on donations to provide exceptional veterinary care to shelter animals.

MAKE YOUR SUPPORT FOR SHELTER ANIMALS GO FARTHER

In 2015, the Alice T. Whitney Helping Hands Fund will generously match dollar for dollar your donation to help cover the costs of providing medical care and treatment to shelter animals.

The ARL receives no government or public funding to provide exceptional veterinary care to thousands of animals every year.

About Alice T. Whitney Helping Hands Fund

helping hand fund foxy

When Foxy, pictured above, was accidentally hit by a car, the Alice T. Whitney Helping Hands Fund helped her family pay for the $4,000 surgery to save her life.

The spirit and generosity of Alice T. Whitney, described in a Board tribute to her as “always ready to extend a helping hand to those in need,” lives on through all the second chances provided by the fund that bears her name.

Longtime ARL supporter and former director Jane Whitney Marshall established the fund in memory of her grandmother Alice – a contemporary and friend of ARL Founder Anna Harris Smith – to ensure limited economic means did not prevent caring owners from providing vital veterinary care for their pets in treatable medical emergencies.

As Ms. Marshall explains, “in the spirit of the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s motto that ‘Kindness Uplifts the World,’ I felt something needed to be done to assist caring owners who simply needed a helping hand to care for their pets.”

Hundreds of beloved pets like Foxy (pictured right) are at home with their families today, thanks to the generosity of the Alice T. Whitney Helping Hands Fund.
