Animal Protection and Rescue League is a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which works to document and expose animal cruelty occurring behind closed doors, educates the public on animals issues through innovative outreach campaigns, and works with policymakers and politicians to implement humane change.  

Since forming in 2003, APRL has garnered the attention of national and international media, influenced animal protection legislation, conducted numerous rescues of abused factory farmed animals, influenced cities to adopt humane solutions to wildlife management, and created a network of grassroots outreach volunteers.

Please join us for regular events like potlucks, speakers, film screenings, dining events, outreach and protests.  For more information, please visit our website at
