The Worcester Animal Rescue League was established in 1912 by a group of women who rescued injured and overworked horses. Since then we have grown to help over 7000 unwanted or lost animals each year. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization relying 100% on generous donors. We do not receive any federal, state, county, or city money.
Adopting a friend
The animals available at our shelter changes almost daily. Please call or visit to see if you can find that special friend you are looking for.
Come Visit Us!
Visitors are welcome to come to the shelter daily. We encourage volunteers to walk, groom or just talk to the homeless animals in our care. We are currently extending our volunteer program, so if you are also interested in fundraising, special events, nursing home visits or anything else, please contact us!
