Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) offers a variety of ways to support our work through events and projects, and in exchange will provide special recognition. We would be honored to include you or your company among our lists of sponsors.

2. Support a cause that is important to you and your customers

As we continue to face uncertainty, one thing remains constant: animals are still in need. An ever-increasing need for community programs and inflation continue to make our work difficult, and your help is needed now to meet the needs of the most vulnerable animals.

Sponsorship support helps cover the costs of the event and ensures the funds raised provide veterinary care, adoption, rescue, advocacy, and law enforcement investigation for animals when they need it most.

ARL is an independent non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We receive no government funding and we rely solely on the generosity of individuals, community partners, and sponsors like you to keep animals safe and healthy.

About Us

For more than 120 years, ARL has responded to the needs of animals and supported a community in which animals are protected, safe, and healthy – in homes and out of shelters.
