Founded in 1981, the ARL is one of very few no-kill facilities in Mississippi. This means there is no time limit on adoptions of each animal. If they are not adopted, they live out their lives at the shelter. They are NOT euthanized just for being unwanted.
Our mission is to care and provide for the many unwanted and abandoned animals in our community. We are proud to have rehabilitated and found loving homes for thousands of animals over the years. The dream of this organiziation is to eliminate thousands of homeless animals by educating the public about responsible and loving pet care.
