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. Without your support, however, nothing we do would be possible. WARL is a non-profit organization and your donations of money, time, supplies, homes, and love are vital to our cause and the lives of the animals in our care. Our sincerest thanks. Want to send the pets a gift?! Monetary donations can be given by clicking the link below:

Supply gifts are welcomed and appreciated! Donations may be dropped off at WARL between 12pm – 4 pm, or they can be shipped via Amazon: amazonsmile-1 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!

Introducing the Patrick Subaru Dog of the Month!

We are SO excited to share our new monthly partnership with our friends over at Patrick Subaru. Each month they will have an adoptable dog in the showroom to hopefully find some great and loving homes for these amazing animals.

May 2019 Patrick Motors Subaru Dog of the Month is…Iris!

Iris came to us from the Animal Care Center of St. John in St. John, USVI after her owner passed away. The fantastic team in St. John sent her to us knowing  WARL would continue to provide the TLC she needed . Iris is super sweet and very smart, she will make some person or family a perfect best friend. Though Iris lived with another dog in St. John, she prefers to be the only pet. Visit WARL to meet this beauty today. Thank you Patrick Subaru for welcoming her into your Subaru family of dogs! She loved meeting everyone at the showroom!
