For many, the holiday season brings feelings of warmth, comfort, and friendship – and our wish for you and all the animals in our care is to experience the joy of the holidays.
Your generous support made this wish come true for thousands of animals so far this year, including:
- 4,420 pets and community cats who were spayed and neutered to keep them healthy
- 2,770 animals who were rehabilitated and adopted into forever homes
- 980 pets who received affordable pet wellness services in the convenience of their own community
- 275 cats and dogs who were transported away from overcrowded shelters in other states
But this important work to help animals is not close to being done.
In the last two months alone, ARL rescued over 160 animals from the horrors of neglect — and even more cases are under active investigation. There has been a troubling increase in the number of animal cruelty and hoarding-type cases that result in a sudden influxes of animals in dire need, which is why your donations are critical to make sure we can stand ready to answer the call for help at any time.
At the same time, our shelter population is changing and we are seeing more animals with complex medical and behavior issues that require additional resources, skilled staff, and extra time to improve.
These animals need you now more than ever, and it’s not too late to help!
Thank you for your thoughtful year-end gift that makes happier lives possible for animals all year long!
