Group Opportunities

ARL welcomes groups to join us for one day of service. Past groups have assisted with socializing kittens, washing vehicles, painting, cleaning; play-yards, animal rooms, barn stalls, and much more!

  • Group Days
  • Corporations

  • Colleges or Universities

  • Group Family Days (all children must be at least 5 years old)

On occasion, dates and times may be adjusted to meet your specific needs.

To apply for your group to participate, please complete this secure form and you will receive a confirmation email. Before completing and submitting an application, please note our guidelines for your group type.

Please reach out at least 48 hours prior to your program, if there are any allergy or fear concerns that may impact your time with ARL.
