Welcome to WARL
Since our founding in 1912, the Worcester Animal Rescue League (WARL) has been dedicated to the care of the animals who provide so much for their human companions.
Founded initially by a group of women determined to save overworked and abused farm horses, WARL’s services have expanded and changed to protect, care, and love our cats and dogs throughout Central Massachusetts. Our staff and volunteers are dedicated champions to this cause and act as caretakers for the animals and educators to their human counterparts. We also work with foster homes, rescue groups, and other shelters nationwide to place animals in the best possible environment.
Without your support, however, nothing we do would be possible. Because we are a private, non-profit organization your donations of money, time, supplies, homes, and love are vital to our cause and the lives of the animals we care for! Our sincerest thanks.
Due to the weather, WARL will be closed for adoptions Saturday, January 24th. Sunday WARL opens at noon, we hope to see you then!
Click and send to help the pets. Visit our Amazon Wish List, and the items you’d like to donate get shipped right to our shelter door! Doesn’t get much easier than that!
A Friend’s Gift: A dear friend of the shelter, who would like to remain anonymous, has offered to help cover the adoption fees for the dogs who have resided at WARL the longest. Read More:
