Main Line Animal Rescue specializes in the rescue and placement of abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals. MLAR works to raise the public’s awareness of the plight of homeless animals as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need. Animals are examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and receive any and all medical treatment before they are placed in carefully screened homes.
Main Line Animal Rescue is nationally recognized as a leader in the fight against puppy mill abuse. Their 2008 billboard in Chicago led to Oprah Winfrey’s award winning expose on puppy mills and featured their undercover investigation with acclaimed journalist Lisa Ling. Their efforts with Newsweek led to Whole Foods Markets issuing a directive to all their suppliers: they would no longer source any products from farmers also operating puppy mills.
A grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization helps MLAR with their medical expenses for senior dogs, both in their rescue and in their Medical Foster program.
MLAR is fortunate that they have an onsite veterinarian and a well-equipped clinic to perform most of what is needed for these special animals in-house, such as dental exams and extractions, biopsies, mass removals and orthopedic meds and blood/lab work. Female dogs that come to them from the puppy mills all need to be spayed and require additional care because of the deterioration of their organs because of countless pregnancies.
