Description
Animal Rescue League offers community service hours to both junior high and high school students at the age of 16+. This program gives students the opportunity to volunteer at ARL's sanctuary and adoption center. The students get the education of becoming involved and experience the 'how to' hands on care of the animals. Through this program, the students experience how caring for these animals will teach them attributes and qualities that allow them to be better human beings and enrich their lives forever. We increase public awareness about the needs and care of domestic and feral animals through presentations to civic and community groups, bringing animals to students at local schools (grades K-12), attending community events, articles in local media, and through our website.

Program Successes
- We have attended or conducted over 15 community events per year.
- More than 200 students have volunteered to assist with fundraising events such as car wash, bowling tournament, bake sales, etc.
Description
This program is a great way to make a difference in the lives of animals when no time is available to volunteer. One-time or monthly sponsorship donations are needed to provide medical care, food, and shelter. Every dollar goes toward the health and well-being of our animals. The stray and abandoned animals come to ARL in a variety of conditions usually with severe injuries or special needs. The monthly sponsorship helps provide medical care, a safe place for them to live, and a caring environment while the animals wait to get adopted. Even though we do have animals that will stay with ARL for life, you can sponsor any one of our many wonderful animals.

Program Successes
People who cannot give their time by volunteering are able to make a meaningful contribution by donating monthly and assisting animals in need by providing much needed funds to rehabilitate them.
Description
None of our staff is paid so we look to dedicated volunteers who assist in nearly every area of the sanctuary/adoption center as well as at special events. ARL volunteers are given extensive and on-going training. Their dedication and love enrich forgotten animals. Volunteer opportunities include: daily care and feeding of the animals, continuing medical care when needed, socialization, special events assistance, adoption counseling, and many others. We provide opportunities for education, instruction, and community service. Current needs include: veterinarian assistance, fundraiser, marketing, social media, grant writer, and website design/maintenance.

- We provide opportunities for education, instruction, and community service.
Description
Some of the cats that are rescued by ARL are 10+ years old and considered 'seniors'. This leaves many wonderful, older healthy cats in the position of being overlooked by potential adopters. These animals still have a lot of life and love to give. ARL doesn't want them to miss out on the opportunity of having a special place of their own and someone to love them unconditionally. This program allows individuals over 70 years old to foster a senior cat and provides both with the opportunity to experience the very important and often life-changing human-animal bond. It has proven to be critical in furnishing what is often a person's only companionship - that of a person with his or her pet(s). ARL provides all veterinary care for the animal and retains ownership of the animal. We provide support however we can and remain in close contact - if / when the need arises we take the animal back into our care.

Program Successes
This program is successful based on the following criteria:
1. A senior cat is placed in a loving home
2. An individual over 70 years old can offer a pet a home knowing that if something happens there is support for the animal
3. Space is made available for another animal in need at our sanctuary
Description
ARL has a dedicated group of volunteers who make our foster care and rescue programs possible. Because of the types of animals that we rescue - stray, feral, abandoned, abused - a variety of housing is needed and a shelter environment does not work for all of them. Some of these animals come to us in need of extra medical care and need individual attention. Through the kindness of our volunteers who provide foster care homes these animals are able to do the healing they need prior to being placed up for adoption.

Program Successes
Through the work of the families that provide foster care homes and our volunteers, these animals are allowed to get the tender loving care they need, live a good life and have time to find a forever home.
