Featuring Animals Who Need a Home & Those Who’ve Already Found One

This is the time of year when everyone at the ARL especially wants to give the animals in our care the opportunity to experience joy and companionship.  After all, it’s what the holidays are all about.

With that in mind, today we kick off “Home for the Holidays,” a month-long community outreach campaign to encourage adoption and support for our shelter animals.

We’ll feature stories on our blog about animals rescued from cruel conditions, now recovered and living happy and healthy lives.

We will also share the stories of the many deserving animals available for adoption at our adoption centers in Boston, Dedham, and Brewster.  Animals like Mike, a cute as can be guinea pig who’s been at the ARL since October 15. He’s great with kids and just an all-around stand-out guinea pig!

Our biggest holiday wish is to help the animals in our care and individuals and families willing to open their hearts to an animal in need find each other now.

Each of our adoption centers also has a holiday wish list of items and supplies that help make our furry, feathered and hoofed friends in our adoption centers feel comfortable and loved during their stay with us.  You can download and share the holiday wish list for each shelter at:

The happiest part of the work we do all year is bringing animals like Mike and people together.  Every year the organization unites over 3,000 deserving animals with loving human companions.  Another 1,100 find foster homes with dedicated ARL volunteers, too.

We look forward to sharing stories, pictures, and videos this month to help the animals in our care find a home for the holidays!
