Animal Rescue League

We Are the Advocate for the Animal in Everything We Do.

Our Philosophy is EVERY Animal Has Value and With the Proper Love
and Care they CAN Become Wonderful Family Members.

What Makes Animal Rescue League a Little Different:

  • We give each and every animal the time it takes to socialize them and to know who they are and learn that they can once again trust humans. This process helps us properly match you with your forever friend.
  • ARL provides a home‐like, cage free environment and socializes the animals with cats, dogs and children.
  • ARL has an adoption process which helps transition the animal to their new home, other animals and family members.
  • ARL makes a difference in the community through youth community service programs and also conducting educational seminars for the public about animal responsibility and care.

You can become a partner in our efforts to save homeless, abused or neglected animals. Your donations provides the food, shelter, medical care and other services for our animals.

We are a Non-Profit 501(c)3 Community Organization and Donations are Tax-Deductible. We have No paid employees and All Donations Go Directly to the Care of the Animals.

If you would like to help us in our ongoing efforts to care for animals in need, please consider a direct or indirect contribution to the Animal Rescue League.

Featured Adoption

Our animals at Animal Rescue League (ARL) come to us most of the time afraid and in very bad shape. The love, patience and care they receive at our sanctuary helps them become ready to find their forever home. Here's a few of our current available animals for adoption.

More Animals


Tasha is a lot like her sister, Tabu in that she has a keen sense of who will or will not be the right person for her. She will lean back and look you directly in the eye to measure you up. Tasha is extremely smart and was the first kitty in her foster home to figure out how to open the cat door, even when it was locked!


Jaxon has a sweet face with a small scar on his nose. For whatever his past life was Jaxon has a gentle and loving personality. Jaxon is a sweetheart who would enjoy having his belly rubbed all day long. Once you start rubbing his belly he will follow you anywhere.


Can you imitate Scooby Doo? Polly can. When she needs to go out or to get your attention she sounds just like him! Polly is a smart, loving and loyal dog who is in need of a forever home.
