The Animal Rescue League of Boston’s Alice T. Whitney Helping Hand Fund provides financial assistance to families with limited economic means so they don’t have to make the agonizing choice between everyday necessities and caring for their pet at the time of an emergency. It was created by long-term ARL supporter Jane Marshall in memory of her grandmother Alice T. Whitney, who served for many years on the ARL’s Board as an ardent animal lover and advocate.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston is proud to be a non-profit partner for #GivingTuesday for the second year in a row.

Giving Tuesday Description

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. This year help us create #GivingTuesday. A new day for giving back.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community or your company to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving the gift of love and time to families and their pets.

Be a part of a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity. Please encourage your family and friends to donate to the ARL's Alice T. Whitney Helping Hand Fund on #GivingTuesday, December 3, 2013.
