About Our Shelter...
The mission of the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland (ARLGP) is to provide temporary care and shelter for stray, abandoned, confiscated and relinquished animals, and to place as many as possible into responsible and caring homes; to work to create awareness and support for the humane treatment of all animals; to end animal overpopulation through education and the promotion of spaying and neutering; to make end-of-life decisions based on safety and animal welfare considerations.
The Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland (ARLGP) is a private nonprofit animal shelter established in 1911. Every year, we take in more than 4,000 stray, abandoned or owner surrendered animals.
