Welcome to the Animal Rescue League of Berks County

The mission of the Animal Rescue League of Berks County is to improve all aspects of the humane treatment of animals through quality services, accommodations, and the education of pet owners and the community.


Visit with our pets ready for adoption. Come meet your perfect match today!


Every little bit counts! Your genereous donation helps animals most in need.


Without fostering, there can be no rescue. Every year we save the lives of over 500 pets.


You can help animals that we would otherwise not be able to facilitate.

We are closing our dog kennels for adoptions due to illness until further notice. This is a preventative measure to ensure our sick pups are getting rest and our healthy dogs stay healthy. Thank you for understanding. If you have any questions please email Sarah McKillip at or Julie Reber at
