Advocacy through education

Advocacy through education should be an essential aspect of any companion animal rescue. At Main Line Animal Rescue, we put education at the forefront of our efforts. MLAR raises awareness about the importance of fighting for the welfare of our nation’s neglected animals, as well as pet responsibility, kindness to animals, safety around animals, and puppy mills.

Volunteers participate in outreach programs by helping animals at the shelter and by brightening the days of their fellow humans. MLAR tailors educational presentations to specific audiences, incorporating age-appropriate printed and audio-visual materials to inspire those who want to make a difference in the community.
