**COVID-19 Update: We have been humbled by our community members’ offers to volunteer and foster for ARL during this uncertain time. While we appreciate all of the support, due to Covid-19 we are not adding new volunteers and foster parents at this time. Please be assured that our current staff, volunteers and foster parents are diligently taking care of our animals. Check back on our website routinely for updates as to when we can safely begin to our add new members to our volunteer and foster care programs again. Thank you again for your continued care of ARL and it’s programs.**
