Yoda is just one of the 16,938 animals you helped in 2018!


Yoda, also featured on our cover, was found abandoned in a cardboard box in September 2018 when he was only 7 weeks old. This tiny kitten was extremely dehydrated and received medical attention from our shelter veterinary team. After spending several weeks in foster care, Yoda – now named Frodo – found his perfect match at our Boston Animal Care and Adoption Center – all thanks to you!

Our Mission We are an unwavering champion for animals in need, committed to keeping them safe and healthy in habitats and homes.

From the President and Board Chair owners; the remaining feral cats returned to their colonies and network of caregivers.

Dear Friends, In 2016, ARL adopted a new strategic vision that focuses our efforts and resources on animals and people most in need. We are proud to share the progress made, with your support, to realize this vision for the benefit of nearly 17,000 animals in 2018. We learned that access to affordable veterinary care was the number one concern for pet owners in under-resourced communities. With support from PetSmart Charities and Boston’s Mabel Louise Riley Foundation, we were able to expand a small pilot project into the Wellness Waggin’; a mobile veterinary unit where we provide low-cost exams and vaccinations in three Boston neighborhoods. This work builds off of our longstanding spay/neuter services offered through the Spay Waggin’ that serves Southeastern MA and Cape Cod.


Our community outreach vision has benefitted not only owned pets, but also cats living outdoors. In 2018, with dedicated field staff, ARL trapped, provided care for, and rehabilitated cats living in communities; many of whom suffered from starvation and disease. Remarkably, of the 521 cats served, 72% were adopted to permanent homes or returned to their

Many of our insights into community need come from our law enforcement investigations. In 2018, we filed criminal charges for animal cruelty in 56 cases and saw a record number of animals saved from hoarding-type situations. These cases inform our advocacy for laws and regulations to protect animals. This advocacy paid off with the passage of PAWS II, an act which establishes a commission to explore mandatory reporting of animal cruelty; ensures property owners inspect vacant properties for abandoned animals; and prohibits the drowning of wildlife. While our new programs focus on community-based service, ARL continues to innovate and improve the services for animals at our Animal Care and Adoption Centers in Boston, Dedham and Brewster. We have organized our services to minimize the length of stay in shelter and maximize the “live release rate”, positive outcomes for animals coming into our care. We also launched Adoption-Forward, a conversation-based adoption program to facilitate making the best match for both people and animals. In 2018, we also marked a leadership transition of ARL’s Board of Directors. We celebrated the 17 years of service by Malcolm McDonald, the Board Chair for the past six years. Under his leadership, the strategic vision was adopted and many parts of the organization were strengthened. His tireless leadership and commitment to good governance is seen throughout ARL. In fact, it was his recommendation for term limits

for board members, a good practice for non-profits, which prompted this transition. We are deeply indebted to Malcolm for his service and delighted that he remains a dedicated supporter and cheerleader for our work. In the pages that follow, you will note the nearly 12,000 individuals, foundations, and corporations recognized for their contributions to ARL. The annual support provided by people like you is put to work immediately for animals and the people that care for them. Some of you have decided to leave your “print” or legacy for future animal care, as members of the Anna Harris Smith Legacy Society, named after ARL’s founder. This society reflects supporters that have named ARL in their estate plans, securing this important work for generations. Thank you for being part of this exciting vision and for making an impact for animals and people throughout Massachusetts. We strive to honor your support and commitment every day through excellent animal care, good governance, compassion for those we serve, and a vision for a more humane community. Sincerely,

He started as a volunteer in 2014 and served as a foster parent before being elected to the Board in 2015. Walter deepened his commitment to ARL by joining the Leadership Council and serving as a co-chair.

“ARL has a long and proud history of helping animals in need, and animals have been a major source of happiness and enrichment throughout my life. So I am very pleased to help guide an organization that does so much to help animals and the people who care for them. “ - Walter Kenyon, newly elected Board Chair


Thank you, Malcolm, for over 17 years of dedicated service to ARL and animals in need. So many of our successes and accomplishments over the past 17 years would not have been possible without the steadfast work of our retiring Board Chair, Malcolm McDonald. Malcolm started with ARL as a volunteer, walking dogs and cleaning kennels. He joined the board in 2010, and was nominated to Board Chair in 2012. Malcolm’s legacy at ARL has been defined by a commitment to three things: rigorous data collection and analysis, fiduciary responsibility, and relentlessly building for the future. These three commitments have launched ARL into a new era. Three years into the five-year strategic plan that Malcolm was instrumental in creating, we have grown our programs and made significant strides for the animals and communities most in need. We are so grateful for everything Malcolm has done for animals in need, and for ARL. Thank you for your service, Malcolm!
