During this season of thanks, all we can think of is the immense gratitude we hold in our hearts for the incredible supporters of the Animal Rescue League of Berks County who make saving lives of animals across Berks County possible. We want to thank each and every person who plays a role in the ARL community because it takes a village to provide a safe haven for all animals, and we couldn’t do this lifesaving work without you.

Thank you to every single person who has adopted an animal at the ARL. Our mission simply isn’t possible without people like you who have graciously opened their home to a shelter animal in need. Thanks to you, we can rest assured knowing our ARL alumni are in a safe and loving home after coming a long way from the shelter life.

Thank you to our volunteers who have dedicated their time to our animals and staff. Whether you walk dogs, care for cats, wash laundry, or anything in between, you are the reason we are able to maintain our facilities and serve as many animals as possible.

Thank you to our foster families who bring shelter pets into their homes for the extra TLC that only a foster caregiver can provide. Whether our adoptables are sick, in need of socialization, or just need to decompress, you are always there in a heartbeat to care for the animals who depend on you to find their forever home.

Thank you to everyone who has donated funds to ARL this year, allowing us to serve hundreds of animals every day without limits. From hosting your own fundraisers in the community to making a gift to a campaign to donating whatever you had in your pocket at the time, your generous donations have helped us maintain our facilities, support staff, and feed, provide medical care, and enrich the lives of shelter pets all year-round.

Thank you to the amazing people who have donated food, pet supplies, and other much-needed items to the shelter. From cat litter to dog toys to laundry detergent, you have massively alleviated the cost of everyday items needed to keep our shelter operating. Plus, nothing beats surprising animals with all of the wonderful toys and treats that show up at our door step!

Thank you to the local businesses and sponsors who have supported ARL at our fundraising events, sponsored adoptions, or through hosting their own corporate fundraisers. We are always blown away by the incredible support we receive from businesses in our community who are passionate about our cause, and for that, we can’t say thanks enough. We know there are so many worthy local causes to give back to, and it is an absolute honor that you have chosen to support our animals and the staff who care for them each day.

Thank you to everyone in our community who supports our work. From sharing our mission to friends and loved ones, to helping neighbors reunite with a lost pet, to stopping by to say hello when you see us at a local event, we are so grateful to everyone who has shown support and interest in our cause. During this season of gratitude and community, we want you to know that we simply couldn’t be here without you, and for that, we cannot thank you enough.
