A  Central Massachusetts 

​Foster Based Dog Rescue 


In March of 2013 I began researching animal shelters in need of volunteer work. Initially, I contacted a few of the big name rescues (Worcester Animal Rescue League and the MSPCA in Boston). I ended up finding New England All Breed Rescue on Petfinder, and I contacted Kelly immediately. I had no idea this rescue ever existed! Kelly opened her home and rescue to me, as if she had known me for years. Kelly has welcomed me as part of the rescue and has taught me so much about dog behavior and rescue. I volunteer at NEABR 3 days a week (at the kennel) but my volunteer work continues 24/7. The dogs are my heart and soul. The dogs have changed my life completely, they light up my life with wagging tails and unconditional love. My heart is full because of NEABR.
