About us

The Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL) is a welcoming place for animals and the people who love them. Founded in 1914, WARL is a private, not-for-profit animal welfare organization that provides care and compassion to homeless animals throughout the region. Our shelter, a bright, inviting facility in northwest Washington, is open daily to welcome you. WARL also houses a full-service Medical Center, which opened in 1996 to provide low-cost veterinary care for our shelter animals and the pets of low-income guardians. Additionally, our innovative programs and frequent community events make us a leader in the animal welfare community and in our hometown.
