Match Mary’s $5K donation to help more animals in need!

Dear friend,

At the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL), we see cases of animal cruelty and neglect every day.


The ARL was called in to help on the case of two Chihuahuas, now named Dancer and Prancer, who were left locked in a rabbit cage with no food or water for over a week.

Even after three years as president of the Animal Rescue League of Boston, I am still shocked by the callous and thoughtless way animals are too often treated in our state.

Just a few weeks ago, for example, the ARL received a call for help from animal control officers in a town in central Massachusetts.

Local authorities had discovered the two starving and dehydrated Chihuahuas where they had been left locked in a rabbit cage in a dark closet for over a week.

I can’t even begin to comprehend why someone would do something so cruel.

Yet what I find more awe-inspiring is the way animals can recover. Their resilience during difficult times, and their ability to trust and love again is truly amazing.

The ARL covered the cost of the pair’s emergency veterinary care. Now named Dancer and Prancer, they are slowly regaining their strength, sweetness, and spunk with a dedicated foster volunteer.

Help more animals in need by helping to match her personal $5K donation to the ARL!

Our hope is to ring in 2016 by finding them a home.

The ARL receives no government or public funding to help thousands of animals like the two Chihuahuas every year.

We rely entirely on supporters like you and I am asking you to help animals in need by helping to match the $5,000 donation I am making to the ARL.

We need to raise over $900,000 by December 31 to ensure all of our programs end the year fully funded. Big or small, every donation means the ARL will stand ready to answer the call for help from even more animals in need.


Thank you very much again for your support for the ARL and very happy holidays to all the people and pets in your life.
