Animal Rescue Association of the Americas
Until 2008, when AnRAA was awarded 501(c)(3) non-profit status, the animal rescue community had no professional advocacy organization. Animal rescue groups often worked in complete isolation; each group or individual had to begin from scratch. Time spent creating forms, processing data and solving commonly shared problems was time lost on truly crucial work: Saving more animal lives.
AnRAA was created to support, nurture and promote this immense and powerful community.
