Worcester, MA Worcester Animal Rescue League, 139 Holden St., Worcester, MA 01606 Phone: 508-853-0030. The Worcester Animal Rescue League, a private, nonprofit organization, was founded in 1912 by a group of women determined to save overworked and abused farm horses. Today, WARL is one of the largest no-kill, limited intake animal shelters in the region, accepting pets only when there is enough shelter space to do so. WARL prides itself on not establishing a time limit for healthy and adoptable animals, and the staff and volunteers work constantly with foster homes, rescue groups, and other shelters nationwide to place animals in the best possible circumstance.
Bedford, NH The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire is a non-profit organization, incorporated in 1904, with the mission to protect, rescue & adopt animals to the public. The ARLNH receives no Federal or State funds for support and is solely dependent upon fundraising events and private donations to support its cause. We are a limited admissions shelter. We do not euthanize animals to make room for more. Occasionally, we have to stop admissions until we have room for animals. Homeless pets stay here until they find a home. This could mean a year or more or it could be a day. It is all about the animals so flexibility is critical.
