The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) is an unwavering champion for animals in need, committed to keeping them safe and healthy in habitats and homes. While we make every effort possible to help keep an animal where they belong, it’s inevitable that some animals in need will make their way into our shelters before they can be connected with a loving family.
