Temporary Pet Housing Initiative

Keeping pets and families together is more important than ever

Are you a pet owner who is temporarily unable to care for your pet due to unexpected life circumstances? If so, the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) may be able to help.

ARL’s Temporary Pet Housing program offers short-term pet care through all three of our Animal Care and Adoption Centers, with support from our extensive foster caregiver network. We stay in close contact with you for the duration of your pet’s stay with us, with the goal of reuniting you with your pet as soon as you’re able.

To find out if your pet is eligible for temporary housing and for more information, please fill out our form.
