The Animal Rescue League of Boston Provides Services to Help Animals in Need

Cool Story - The Animal Rescue League of Boston Provides Services to Help Animals in Need

 

All over the world, there are animals in need. Because animals can’t speak verbally, they need people who are willing to help them. The Animal Rescue League of Boston is an organization that does just that. Since their founding in 1899, the ARL has been defending the rights of animals who need assistance. The main part of the ARL’S work is providing important services such as veterinary care and adoption. This organization also works to prevent cruelty and neglect to animals through their advocacy and police investigations. In 2021, the ARL helped 23,938 animals through its work. It’s the ARL’s mission to protect animals, keep them out of shelters, and place them in loving families. 

 

The ARL was founded twelve decades ago by a social worker named Anna Harris Smith. Anna was shocked and appalled by the brutal maltreatment of Boston’s work horses. There were also many stray animals living on the streets of Boston. Wanting to do something, Anna wrote to the Boston Evening Transcript, advocating for a shelter to take care of derelict cats and dogs. In her editorial, she wrote: “While getting dogs and cats off the street is work worth doing, the teaching of thoughtful kindness is the work that changes families, communities, and a nation.” On February 7, 1899, the first ever ARL meeting took place at the Park Street Church, composed of 110 individuals. A physical location was set up later   at 68 Carver Street. Anna’s vision was not about just helping animals now, but thinking ahead for the future. Since the ARL’s inception, they have become much more than a shelter, and help animals in all of Eastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod.  

 

In 1907, Anna procured the Chamberlain Farm on Pine St. in Dedham. The Dedham campus was created to care for small animals and allow working horses to rest. This campus has been serving animals for 112 years. The campus has greatly expanded since its beginnings, now including an Animal Care & Adoption Center, a cemetery for pets, management and training spaces, and barns for horses. Dedham’s Animal Care & Adoption Center also serves as the town’s shelter.      

 

In the spring of 2022, the ARL once again showed just how much they care about animals. Working together with the Town of Dedham and Dedham Animal Control, the ARL recently played host to two clinics for rabies vaccines and microchips. ARL’s Wellness Waggin’(the organization's mobile veterinary unit) had supplied these services for the clinic. The new clinic can be found on the ARL’s Dedham campus. About 100 animals were able to get their rabies vacancies and microchips thanks to this new clinic. 

 

The ARL has a magainzaine called Our Four-Footed Friends. This is a bi-annual publication that describes all that the ARL does to help animals, and the people who make these services possible.

If you are or may be forced to leave your current living area and have an animal that needs care, the ARL can help. They may be able to provide temporary housing for your pet. To find out more information, click here: https://www.arlboston.org/temporarypethousing/.    

 

Having a pet go missing is one of the worst things to experience. The ARL has some helpful tips if you should be so unlucky to experience this:

  • Call your local Animal Control Officer.

  • File a report with the ARL either in person, over the phone, or online.

  • Get in touch with your pet’s microchip business if they have been microchipped.

  • File reports with local shelters in your area.

  • Be persistent in your search.
