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:
Please Donate to Worcester Animal Rescue League in Central MA
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!

Now through October 31st, post photos of your adorable mutts, meows, and critters and use #SNELovesPets when sharing your photos! Thank you Subaru of New England for including us in this fabulous campaign.
