Success! Thanks for posting your review of Animal Rescue League of Boston. You’ve done the world some good today.


The bottom line is that ALL animals in the Animal Rescue League shelters throughout the state, need loving homes. Unfortunately, like many non-profit businesses, not many know what goes on behind closed doors. You want to believe that the animals are safe here but the true fact is...they are not. Greed comes in many shapes, sizes, colors and other unseen forms. The big-wigs of these shelters are treated like royalty.... view more

A wonderful group of people

Over the years, I have been blessed by the gifts of this organization. We are avid animal lovers, the ARC has helped rescue many animals. Yesterday was an example of them at their best, when a kitten had crawled through an old bulkhead of our church, and got stuck for 3 days because of an ice storm. We weren't able to get the kitten out, but ARC responded within 15 minutes to rescue her, and though initially scare... view more
