Main Line Animal Rescue

Phoenixville, PA

Our Mission

Adoptions at Main Line Animal Rescue are done by volunteers, who have spent many hours getting to know the animals who are available for adoption. Because we must coordinate adoption visits with the volunteers who know the animals, we request that you first submit an application by going to our website at www.mlar.org/adopt. When it is received, someone will call you to arrange a time that works for your family and the volunteer.


E-mails regarding adoption are not considered an application. Your application must be submitted to http://www.mlar.org/adopt/adoption-process



Main Line Animal Rescue specializes in the rescue and placement of companion animals. We never discriminate on the basis of health, age or breed. By involving and educating the community, Main Line Animal Rescue works to raise awareness of the issues related to animal welfare as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need. Our animals are examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and receive any and all medical treatment before they are placed in
