Rescue Program/Collaboration

Although Massachusetts laws regarding animal abuse and abandonment aren’t as strong as Worcester Animal Rescue League would like, the animals in our state are much better off than animals in other parts of the country where they are regarded as livestock and nuisances.

Through our Rescue Program, WARL contacts several organizations to take in stray dogs, when we have available space. The rescue dogs we accept have been cleared by a vet in their place of origin and have been socialized through foster programs before beginning the journey to WARL.
